Essentials of Plastic Failure

About this event

This webinar will cover a considerable range of topics important in understanding, diagnosing, and preventing plastic component failure. The most efficient and effective approach to solving plastic component failure is by performing a systematic failure analysis. Someone once said, “if you don’t know how something broke, you can’t fix it”, and this certainly highlights the importance of a thorough understanding of how and why a product has failed. The material covered will include:

  • Essential knowledge of why plastic components fail
  • The five factors affecting plastic part performance
  • The process of conducting a failure investigation and methods for understanding how and why a product has failed
  • The major plastic failure mechanisms
  • The failure analysis process

The webinar series will focus on practical problem-solving techniques and will utilize case studies to illustrate key aspects of plastic failure and prevention. By attending this webinar participants will:

  • Better appreciate the factors that play a role in plastic part performance.
  • Recognize the most common plastic failure mechanisms.
  • Understand what can be done when a failure occurs.
  • Use this knowledge to prevent plastic component failure.
