Polymer Material Selection Courses
Failures arising from incorrect material selection and grade selection are persisting problems in different industries.
There are almost 100 generic “families” of plastics and 1,000 sub-generic plastic types, available at over 500 suppliers.
The end users are responsible to select the right polymer for the right purpose.
I will show you how to select polymers in a systematic way using my polymer selection funnel method.
We will go over the entire selection process, from how to establish part requirements, gather material data, rank different polymers all the way to how to select a vendor after selecting the polymer.
We will cover:
How to prevent plastic part failure
How to outline product requirements
How to define material selection factors
How to search for proper material data
How to create a decision matrix and weighting different polymers
How to set up prototype and part testing
How to select the optimal polymer material
How to select the optimal material vendor
The full curriculum you can watch here.
In a few hours, you will learn everything you need to select the optimal polymer material for your project, save thousands of dollars by preventing part failure, and have fun in the process.
