Polymeric materials are in a revolution of being re-imagined and re-designed for both expanded performance and mission-specific use cases. These materials are rapidly extending into more end-use applications than ever before, from recycled plastics-post consumer & post-industrial, and biopolymer-based consumer packaging to life-saving medical devices to stronger and more durable automotive and aerospace components. Increasing performance requirements and sustainability targets for polymers are demanding more advanced characterization to fully understand their properties and determine suitability for their intended end-use conditions.

Join us for a one-day seminar focused on advanced characterization techniques for polymer materials. This seminar is designed for scientists and engineers of all backgrounds and technical abilities. You will gain an understanding of how to qualify/quantify, optimize process conditions and predict product performance of your polymeric materials to ensure a successful end-use product.
