Surfactants Selection for Polymer Processing

Recorded Course

Recorded on Dec 8, 2021

Avoid polymer preparation issues (improper wetting character, gel contamination, machine deposits, process breaks…) with better selection of surfactants based on underlying formulation science and wetting fundamentals.

Leading expert, Paul Seemuth will explain correlation between surfactants and successful polymer preparation. He will also lay focus on surfactant character (surfactancy, Micelle formation…) by sharing in-depth examples and variants used.

Why should you view this course?

For efficient polymer processing, surfactants are necessary partners & selecting the right one is critical to avoid issues like deposition on machine face plate, process breaks, separation, gel contamination...

However, this selection becomes challenging as regulatory measures are reducing the surfactants available for use. Additionally, when the underlying formulation science and wetting fundamentals are overlooked/ignored, it results in poor plastic part quality and uniformity.

Why wait for it to happen? Be a pro and act now. Without a doubt, it will save you lots of time & resources! Join this course to:

  1. Strengthen your ability to select surfactants properly by understanding the science and wetting fundamentals.

  2. Learn how to avoid any defects and deficiencies resulting from polymer production processes, wet spinning, dry wet spinning, dry spinning… that can lead to premature process failure.

  3. Master the core fundamentals: classes of surfactants, their functionality, surfactant emulsification character… with in-depth examples.

  4. Get advice and practical tips on your technical challenges by interacting live with our expert Paul Seemuth.
