Chemical make-up of multilayered films with ease and highest level of confidence, Detection of dimensional stability & history.

    • FIBERS: Determining draw ratios and dimensional stability and correlation with mechanicals & dyeability

    • MANUFACTURING: Problems arising in Film Extrusion, Injection Molding, Blow Molding, Thermoforming, and Compounding

    • ADDITIVES & COATINGS: Best practices in selecting the right additive & optimal COATINGS. Exploring the "Un-Expected" benefits of additives.

    • INNOVATION: How to use "Analytical Data" to discover New Concepts for Product & Process Innovations

    • SALES & MARKETING: Product / Process "A" is better than "B" and, if unresolved, $MM sales is at stake; Maximizing Probability of Winning !!!

    Target Audience:

    • R&D / New Product-Process Development: Learn most effective ways to follow progress towards your goals.

    • Technical Services & Marketing: Learn how to respond to "CUSTOMERS" when $MM is at stake

    • Analytical Services: Learn and count on some new Analytical-Problem Solving strategies from our TEAM of experts.


    • Enjoyed the problem solving examples.....Rheology of moisture and heat sensitive materials was very useful since we process PET & Nylons.
    We took away some great information from this seminar.
    -Tom Shilale, Sr. R&D Engineer, Avery Dennison, Attendee-2010, Fitchburg, MA
    -Chuck Burout, Business Development Manager-New Technologies, Avery Dennison, Attendee-2010, Fitchburg, MA

    • Practical aspects of the course were excellent. Logical & scientific problem solving examples were great. Thanks, it was a day Very Well spent.
    -Dr. Sumita Ranganathan, Senior Product Development Engineer, Sealed Air, Attendee-2009, Duncan, SC

    • Very well in-depth analysis of the role of crystallinty in controlling the performance of plastic films; I learned a lot from the class.
    -Huy Phan, Process Quality Engineer , SKC Films, Attendee-2009, Covington, GA

    • Case Histories provided methodology and approaches to problem analysis - liked it very much. Also enjoyed the discussion on 7-RULES OF INNOVATION with a particular reference to problem solving.
    -Dr. Salil Jha, Manager R&D, Capsugel-a division of Pfizer, Attendee-2008, Greenwood, SC

    • Discussion of Case Studies was particularly helpful. I learned a lot of "Tips & Tricks" that you won't find in textbooks. Very practical approach in presentations.
    -Lourdes Lopez, Principal Scientist, Beckton Dickinson, Attendee-2008, Franklin Lakes, NJ

    • Extremely helpful course for our type of industry where competition is intense and everyone is looking for cost-effective packaging materials with superior technology...Structure-processing-property relationships were presented with such high clarity for the first time...Case histories discussed will definitely help us.
    -Dipak Boral, Head-R&D, UFlex-Packaging Division, Attendee-2007, Noida, India

    • Course was very good with lots of practical information and thought-provoking approaches to industrial problem solving.
    -William Brown, Lead Sciences & Lab Services Specialist, Progressive Energy, Attendee-2007, New Hill, NC

    • Quite interesting course...all the case-studies presented brought-in new ideas to be applied to our materials.
    -Carlos Rodriguez, R&D, BioFilm, Attendee-2007, Cartagena, Columbia, South America

    • The course was highly relevant to non-lab people like myself...Really liked the message about Innovation coming from analytical work.
    -Richard Dayrit, Research Associate, Sealed Air-Cryovac Division, Attendee-2007, Duncan, SC

    • Speakers were highly knowledgeable in applying analytical techniques to the real world problems.....Case Histories were intriguing....Overall, a good value for the time & money.
    -Dr. Michael J. Pearce, Laboratory Head-Polymers Analytical, Eastman Chemical, Attendee-2006, Kingsport, TN

    • It is a very fruitful short course, perhaps one of the best that I have attended to. I particularly enjoyed the case histories of the industrial problem solving that showed how to approach the problem strategically, and the application of various analytical techniques in real life. I also liked the presentations that showed how small discoveries from analytical testing lead to big inventions and innovations. Thank you very much for giving this inspiring course!
    -Dr. Jian Qiu, Pall Corp, Attendee-2005, Port Washington, NY

    • The course was well organized and met my expectations. I learned a huge amount about DSC & DMA which allows us (me) to use these techniques more as analytical tools.
    -Myles Bos, Senior Material Scientist, Ballard Power Systems, Attendee-2005, Canada

    • Course met my expectations. Case studies were very effective in relating how the analytical techniques can help product related issues. I have generated a lot of ideas that I can take back and try out. We will be able to now take our analysis capabilities to a better level.
    -Dr. Jason Riggs, Consolidated Containers Company LLC, Attendee-2005, Atlanta, GA

    • These types of courses are hard to find; it fills a need for relating hands-on experience of industrial experts on real-life problems. I was very pleased with the course and will strongly recommend to those looking for innovative solutions…
