Did you know that 25% of Plastic Failure issues are related to Molecular Weight ? Molecular weight (Mw) is key to understanding the entire Polymer Lifecycle i.e. Material Selection, Polymer Development, Addressing Failure, etc.
Jeffery A. Jansen, has a proven experience of 30 years in the field. He has active insight in solving issues and creating opportunities related to Polymeric Materials. In this course, he will help the participants with:
Instead of thinking and analyzing Mw, people often end up hiring expensive consultants. Much of the industry relies on melt flow indications listed on TDS for material selection. But, Mw can vary during polymerization of the material itself (variation in Mw distribution), and after molding (degradation). This can lead to immediate or later failure. Mw evaluation is critical for material stability and should be the starting point of each analysis. Join this course and:
Learn techniques & principles to test Mw by choosing the right measurement method (GPC, IV, MFR…).
