Synergies of Failure Analysis

About this event

Please join us for this special Synergies Event where The Madison Group’s experts share their knowledge and experiences with the community. In this live event, Antoine Rios, Ph.D. and Javier Cruz, Ph.D., discuss unique challenges in the area of failure analysis specific to polymeric materials. This event will deviate from a traditional slideshow presentation and instead takes a conversational approach as the experts discuss on the topic of failure analysis of plastics.

This webinar will provide insight to people not extensively familiar with analyzing plastics on the topics of:

  • Most common test methods used during a failure analysis investigation
  • Aspects to account for when analyzing plastics
  • Challenges encountered during failure analysis investigations
  • Misconceptions of what a failure analysis can provide

In addition, there will be plenty of time for the audience to ask specific questions on the topic of failure analysis.
