UL Prospector lists tens of thousands of different plastic resins. When tasked with material selection, 99.44% of us turn to the typical property data sheet. Those of us who have been around a while are careful not to call it a “technical data sheet”…
What are the issues with the single point numbers listed? Why does that often lead to failed product? What should we be doing instead?
Please join the Milwaukee SPE on April 22nd as we welcome live Jeff Jansen, a renowned expert and frequent presenter on materials and plastic part failure analysis, when he will present new and insightful information on this topic.
Jeffrey A. Jansen is Senior Managing Engineer and a Partner at The Madison Group, an independent plastics engineering and consulting firm. Jeff specializes in failure analysis, material identification and selection, as well as compatibility, aging, and lifetime prediction studies for thermoplastic materials. He has been solving polymer-related problems for 26 years. In that time, he has performed over 3,820 investigations, both for industrial clients and as a part of litigation. Jeff is a regular presenter on the SPE webinar series, covering a wide range of topics related to plastics failure, material performance, testing, and polymer technology. Jeff is a graduate of Carroll College and the Milwaukee School of Engineering.
