Technical plastic training at Interplas 2014 30th to 2nd October 2014

By 22nd September 2014training

During Interplas 2014 between the 30th September and 2nd October at the NEC in Birmingham, Impact Solutions will be offering a short technical plastic training presentation (Plastic Failure Analysis: Revealing the Cause) at our stand (H18) each day at 11.30am.  Places are limited to 10 people and reservations can be made in advance either by visiting our stand at Interplas, or emailing steven.burns@impact-solutions.co.uk. The technical training is a showcase for our range of full training programmes available from our experts at Impact Solutions.  These trainings can be at Impact Solutions head office, on site at your premises, or delivered online via web seminar. For more information please visit our stand, H18.
The technical training titled “Plastic Failure Analysis: Revealing the Cause,” will give an overview of techniques, mainly analytical, used in identifying the mode and ultimately the cause of failures in plastic parts. The training will be held by one of Impact’s experts, Dr Michail Kalloudis.

DPrintr Michail Kalloudis joined our team of technical experts earlier this year. His technical expertise in the area of material science and engineering is helping Impact Solutions to provide solutions to customers who face plastic-related problems such as: mechanical and thermal instability, impurities, identification of hazardous and regulated compounds & mixed polymer incompatibilities.

Holding a PhD from Edinburgh University in advanced polymer materials for use in biomedical and electronic applications, where he completed a dissertation entitled: “Thin Polymer Films of Block Copolymers and Blend/Nanoparticle Composites”. Along with Michail, Impact Solutions have also added new equipment, with the addition of Fourier transform infra-red (FTIR) spectrometer and Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) allowing us to efficiently identify polymers, additives, contaminates and performing oxidation induction time tests according to the international standards.

While our UKAS accredited test work (UKAS accredited testing laboratory No. 0402)  is going strong, Impact Solutions continues to press ahead with several projects, including the development of an advanced composite plastic material with extreme resistance to fire, non-destructive pipe testing equipment, and an innovative solution for the separation of mixed waste plastics, which will go into semi commercial operation in 2015.
Impact Solutions looks forward to welcoming you to our stand at Interplas in Birmingham between the 30th September and 2nd October 2014.  If you would like to pre book an appointment with us, please contact Steven Burns (steven.burns@impact-solutions.co.uk).  Alternatively visit us at our stand H18.
