Why should you view this course?

You often have to mix multiple tools (DSC, DMA, FTIR, TMA...) to either characterize your materials or solve complex formulation or processing issues.

However if you are not clear which tool to use, when and how to complement data from these multiple techniques for better analysis, it can cost you lots of time & money. Join this course and:


1. Design better material analysis plan by clarifying the type of information you will get from each characterization method (DMA, DSC, TGA, FTIR...)

2. Extract more value (extent of oxidation, HDT, Tg, contamination...) by learning how to efficiently cross data from multiple characterization techniques 

3. Wisely optimize performance of your plastics materials by seeing in practice how to proceed on real-cases (material identification, contamination, failure analysis)
