    Materials Appreciation – Polymer Training

    We regularly invest in the knowledge and skills of our staff. With this in mind, some of our staff recently underwent a Polymer Training course on ‘Materials Appreciation’.

    This was run at the renowned Polymer Training & Innovation Centre at the City of Wolverhampton College.

     

    Why invest in Polymer Training?

    We supply Engineering Polymers (e.g. PC, PC/ABS, PA, POM, PMMA, ABS), High Performance Polymers and filled Polypropylene compounds.

    Collectively, our team have over 95 years of experience supplying the injection moulding industry. So, you can be assured we understand any issues you might have.

    We have built on years of experience with first-rate industry knowledge – offering our clients first-hand advice in helping identify and locate the right products for their use.

    About the Materials Appreciation Polymer Training

    The aim of this course was to increase staff knowledge of the different polymer types as well as give an increased understanding of the processing methods.

    The course helps ensure a general understanding of the most common polymer materials, available additives, processing requirements and identification testing procedures. In addition, the course explains the history of plastics materials development, as well as potential future developments.

    The intensive course provides a thorough understanding of the most common types of plastics materials. This covers their manufacture, molecular structure, additives, processing characteristics and also identification methods. The course enables staff to manage material selection and consolidation exercises to, therefore, reduce ongoing and future cost implications associated with raw materials and their storage. Once selected it is also important to process these materials in a manner that will ensure optimum service properties are obtained.

    Bartosz completed the two day course this March and other staff will undertake the training in September.Bartosz Komanski of Hardie Polymers
