  • This webinar, presented by Dr. Abhishek Shetty, Lead Scientist, Anton Paar USA Rheology Division, on March 24th, looks at how DMA can be used to gain a better understanding of the viscoelastic and thermal properties of your material. The theoretical basics of DMA measurements are also covered along with the test methods and their resulting information. Access to this webinar is open to all.

  • SPE is pleased to announce that Thomas (Tom) Salmon, Chief Executive Officer and Director, Chairman of the Board, Berry Global Group and Jim Fitterling, Chief Executive Officer, Dow, will kick off ANTEC® 2020: The Virtual Edition. This opening keynote session, which will begin on Monday, March 30 at 10:00 a.m. ET, will be streamed live on YouTube and will be available at no charge to the plastics industry at large. Each CEO will provide their insights and perspectives on the plastics industry.

  • After hearing individually from hundreds of ANTEC® attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors it became clear that meeting in-person was an impossibility. Unanimous, however, was the desire (need!) to hear from the speakers scheduled to present. ANTEC® 2020: THE VIRTUAL EDITION addresses this need.
