February 13: SPE on Plastic Datasheets

Also on the 13th, SPE will hold a webinar about “Plastic Datasheets: What They Do and Don’t Tell Us” at 11 am EST. There are tens of thousands of different plastic resins out there, and normally, when we need to choose the proper material for a manufacturing project, 3D printing or otherwise, we’ll look to the property data sheet for help. But, data suggests that almost half of all plastic part failures are related to choosing the wrong material. This webinar aims to help with that.

“Selecting the proper material for an application requires the right data. While plastic projects have evolved over the past 50 years, the data we are given has not evolved. This webinar will present the deficiencies of the information presented on plastic data sheets, and suggest what is really needed for successful material selection and product design.”
