Metal failure analysis including identification and remedies from a practical perspective

Products failures before achieving its lifetime are always undesired. To identify a problem that has occurred in a metal component, tooling parts or structure a failure analysis becomes necessary. If well interpreted the fracture can tell the all history behind the failure, this training focus on the practical aspects of fracture

Multi - Characterization Protocols for New Material Development and Formulation Optimization

Today there are multiple characterization tools like DSC, DMA, FTIR, TMA etc. to either characterize materials or to solve complex formulation or processing issues. Comparative studies need to be presented that show the information that can be obtained through the use of different characterization tools and help the formulators to mix and

Hybrid-Silanes: Practical approach to improve your existing and new formulations

Imagine the problem of making a bond between two substrates or sealing a gap or protecting materials or enhancing fillers by a coating. The coating or bond should be strong enough, but on the other hand, applying the material should happen easily. You could do by different ways; solvent borne, water borne, molten state etc. But you could t

EU Food Contact Legislation – Where Are We and Where are We Going?

The European Commission started harmonizing food contact legislation in the mid-1970’s. Over the following years up to 2011 steady, if unspectacular, progress was made with the development of legislation covering the general framework and GMP for all materials and the specific cases of plastics, recycled plastics, active and intelligent

Polyethylene: Expert Advice on Formulation & Failure Analysis to Achieve Best Performances

Polyethylene resins are the largest volume plastic material used worldwide, approximately 80 million metric tons. In spite of a rather simple structure, polyethylene is a relatively diverse material used in a wide range of applications. One of the things that make polyethylene unique is the variation in structure, resulting different classes of pol

Using DMA (Dynamic Mechanical Analysis) to Optimize Present & Future Polymer Formulations

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis, or DMA, is seeing an increasing popularity among people that are interested in the characterization of polymers. Due to its very high level of sensitivity it can be used to detect transitions and events that are not easily observed with other polymer characterization techniques. As such, it can be effectively u
