Instructor: Gary Smith
This workshop will provide a comprehensive understanding of the common ASTM tests found on a standard material data sheet. Participants will become familiar with many of the actual tests through a hands-on lab portion which will point out the strengths and weaknesses of the individual tests. The participant will leave the workshop with a better understanding of the values presented when comparing materials and be better informed as to how those values can be applied.
Who Should Attend:
Engineers, technicians, sales engineers, managers, and anyone involved with specifying materials or dealing with material data sheets should attend this two-day workshop. It is also valuable to anyone who would like a better understanding of how plastics differ from other materials.
