Plastics Failure: Predict & Prevent from Start

On-Demand Course

Recorded on Aug 27, 2020

Prevent plastics component's failure by understanding the top 3 root causes & implementing corrective actions right from the start.

Let expert Jeffrey who has done over 1470 failure analysis help you avoid failure by explaining the leading causes & solutions:
  • Improper material selection (chemical contact, mechanical properties)
  • Ignoring the effects of time (creep rupture, ESC)
  • Deficiencies caused by the injection molding process (under-crystallization, physical defects)

Why should you view this course?

Why wait till the stage of your plastics component's failure & then diagnose the causes to back-track? Prevent the failure from happening altogether by knowing the top causing factors & the corrective actions. Without a doubt, that will save you lots of time & resource! Join this course to:

  • Strengthen your ability to select materials properly by understanding the underlying science (thermal characterstics, mechanical properties…) and its complexities.

  • Enhance your plastics part-design by understanding the importance of the effects of time (creep rupture, stress relaxation, environmental stress cracking…).

  • Learn how to avoid any defects and deficiencies resulting from the injection molding process (degradation, under-crystallization, flash, warping, sink marks, bubbles…) that can lead to premature part failure.

  • Get advice and practical tips on your technical challenges by interacting live with our expert Jeffery Jansen.
