How to Optimize Your Polymer Workflow with Thermal Analysis and Rheology

Registration is closed, we're at capacity.

Attendees will be introduced to the basic techniques of thermal analysis and rheology, including but not limited to DSC, TGA, STA, LFA, rotational and capillary techniques.  An overview of the theory will be given, followed by instrumentation basics as well as how instrument configuration can impact results. Finally, real world application examples will be discussed for each characterization technique. There will be ample time for attendees to discuss their applications with our experts.
