Excellent, the course was well organized and well presented. The content was broad and introduced me to some plasticizers that I was not familiar with.

Miriam T. , from Canadian General-Tower Ltd.

Excellent, I wanted to reconfirm that my perspective of the plasticizer demand, and the types being requested, was still valid. Indeed, it is. So, thank you.

Giuliano M. , from CCC Chemicals

Paul Daniels spoke instructively and to points based in fact. Learned what the different plasticizers were and how the stack up to current phthalate offerings.

Michael P. , from PolyOne

Paul has an enormous wealth of knowledge. Fair information of all of the available alternatives.
