Understanding chemical resistance can be a real challenge when specifying plastic materials on new application components, but The Fixers at PolySource are here to help! Join Director of Applications Development, Cliff Watkins, and Materials Technology Manager, Jeremy Bland, for this PT webinar, where they will...

Understanding flame retardant thermoplastics can be a real challenge when specifying plastic materials on new application components. From determining what flammability tests are required, (UL 94, UL 746A, RTI, ETC), to the type of rating requirement needed based on the application/parts function, design, and thickness,...

In these times of very difficult raw material shortages, it is vital to apply the broadest view on how to judge acceptable options. It can be a challenge determining and comparing material performance when suppliers report properties using different test methods. When determining a material's toughness...

With many engineering resins now in short supply and prices increasing there is no better time to be looking for material alternatives. Polyketone is a semi-crystalline polymer that combines: the higher heat performance of polyamide 6 and 6/6, the fuel resistance of nylon 11 and...

A comparison of the families of polyamides highlighting property differences and where best to use the different grades. The focus will compare PA66, PA6, PPA, HTN, PA46, Amorphous Nylons, ETC. Specific advantages of each resin family will be highlighted and where to position based on...

Selecting the right material upfront in the application design stage is critical in avoiding program delays, failures and possible product recalls or warranty issues. Getting support in material selection is becoming more of a challenge for both OEMs and plastic processors. Many companies are losing...

Many times, too many times, processors will bang their head against the wall trying to resolve processing and part performance issues by adjusting and changing processing parameters. Despite these efforts, the issues still exist. Unfortunately, the processors customer, the OEM, who specified the material, will...
