Polymer Testing and Analysis meeting in Pittsburgh
September 19, 2017 @ 8:00 am - September 20, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Applied Optix will attend the first annual Polymer Testing and Analysis meeting in Pittsburgh, PA September 19th and 20th.
The conference offers the opportunity to discover and debate the latest innovations in polymer testing, characterization and analysis. It is essential to understand how a material or compound will behave during processing and how a product will respond to its user and environment. How will a change in compound formulation affect the mechanical properties of an end product? How will exposure to extreme weather conditions influence the durability of a material?
AO will have a display booth featuring the metal halide lamp based SUV-W161 “Super UV” tester, and the xenon lamp based XER-W75 “Super Xenon” tester. Of particular interest will be the presentation during the conference technical sessions by Mark Alessandro- Global R&D Durability Manager for Avery Dennison. Mark will present on his use of the SUV-W161 for the “Durability evaluation of vinyl films by high irradiance metal halide testing”.
