Glenn Sime, Project Manager at Plastics Technology Laboratories, Inc. (PTLI) will
present the SPE webinar 'Introduction to Plastics Testing' on October 4th
2005. The Introduction to Plastics Testing web seminar will give an overview
of equipment and methods used to characterize polymeric materials used across
a wide range of consumer and industrial applications. Engineers, designers, and
processors will learn the basic terminology and methods used to solve plastics
problems, and improve processing efficiencies.
In addition, this web seminar will help you answer questions such as:
The Introduction to Plastics Testing web seminar will show how testing
can be applied to the many forms of plastic including the raw resin pellets, injection
molded parts, or extruded film, sheet and tube. Reference will be made to additional
forms of polymeric materials such as composites, adhesives, and coatings.
- What type of plastic is this? Is it contaminated?
- Why is my part cracking?
- How do I know if I have good incoming plastic raw material?
- Is my plastic compatible with a specific chemical?
- Which plastic material should I use for this application?
