The course will provide people who use plastics, buy in plastics components or who design with these materials an improved insight into what data sheets can tell them (and what they can’t) and enable them to use that information with better understanding.
Technical data sheets for plastics materials offer a snapshot of selected information and can provide a useful means of comparing test data. They can also be useful in quality testing. However there are other considerations which a material specifier should take into account.Consequently, when reviewing material technical data sheet information, it is vital to understand the context of the published data in terms of the specific material and the intended application.
Training course topics covered:
- What the properties mean and how to use them
- How to compare one material with another
- The relevance of data to the products
- An appreciation of the need to consider data values in context
- The limitations of datasheets
The course will enable attendees to consider how the information found on datasheets relates to the requirements of specific industry sectors, such as consumer products, automotive, medical, construction and others.
The ‘Plastics Materials Technical Datasheets – Reading Between The Lines’ course will take place on 23-24 November 2016 at Smithers Rapra, Shawbury, UK.
