High Temperature Polymers: Smart Selection Criteria & Quick Technology Updates

High Temperature Polymers: Smart Selection Criteria & Quick Technology Updates High temperature polymers are polymers that meet higher requirements than standard or engineering polymers. They are more expensive and generally used in smaller amounts.  For many years, their use has been very limited to specialized applications in area like aerospace and defense fields.  In fact, many high temperature polymers were initially developed for use in the military sector.

However, recently high temperature polymers are finding many new and unique applications in a wide variety of fields.  Many different kinds of high temperature polymers currently exist with a range of properties, including the maximum temperature at they can be used.  However, it is not always clear as to which high temperature polymer is the best one to use in a particular application.  This training will introduce the various types of high temperature polymers, their properties and advantages and disadvantages of each type of material.  Based on that information, criteria will be discussed for the selection of a specific high temperature polymer for use in a particular application.  Among the polymers to be discussed will be PEEK, PEI, PSU, PI’s and LCP’s.  Applications for these polymers will include such areas as injection molding, extrusion and film formation.

Why?

There is always a great deal of interest in extending the use of polymers for new and unique applications.  In this training, people will be instructed as to how to select the correct high temperature polymer for a particular application.  This will allow them to focus their attention on a limited number of high temperature polymers rather than needing to explore many different options.  As such, time and resources can be minimized during the material selection process.

Who?

People that do the development of new materials should attend this training.  Also, anyone that is involved in business development activities will be interested in attending this training.  This is because the training will discuss the selection process of high temperature polymers for new and emerging applications.
