Conducting a Plastic Failure Analysis LIVE! IN PERSON

November 8, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST


This 1/2 day LIVE presentation will cover a considerable range of topics important in understanding, diagnosing, and preventing plastic component failure. The most efficient and effective approach to plastic component failure is by performing a systematic failure analysis. Someone once said, “if you don’t know how something broke, you can’t fix it”, and this certainly highlights the importance of a thorough understanding of how and why a product has failed. This tutorial will introduce the attendees to information they need to gain this understanding. The material covered will include:

  • Defining Failure
  • Plastic Part Performance Factors
  • Understanding Failure Rate in Plastic Components
  • Plastic Failure Mechanisms
  • Failure Analysis Methodology
  • Failure Analysis Testing
  • Case Illustrations

The session will focus on practical problem-solving techniques and will utilize case studies to illustrate key aspects of plastic failure and prevention. Participants will gain a better understanding why plastic components fail, and how to avoid future failures by applying the knowledge learned.
