The international exhibition for the polymer testing industry
Professionals from throughout the materials supply chain will come together at Polymer Testing Expo 2021 to view and compare a wide range of laboratory equipment, systems and services for assessing the quality and performance of plastic formulations and products.
Discover and debate the latest innovations and best practices in polymer testing, characterisation and analysis in the dedicated conference theatre, featuring two days of presentations on the latest advances in testing and analysing polymer materials, compounds and products. Join the industry at this important new forum for scientists, laboratory staff, researchers and R&D professionals who develop, test and analyse new polymer materials, formulations and products.
Both the exhibition and the conference are free for visitors to attend, and is co-located with the Compounding World Expo, Polymer Extrusion World Expo, and Plastics Recycling World Expo.

Head of Microscopy
Christoph Zekorn is mainly involved in failure analysis of plastic products. The analysis of damage, the determination of causes and the development of remedial solutions are one of the main fields of activity. His many years of experience as head of microscopy qualifies him for systematic and rapid damage management.
His presentation will cover the general procedure of failure analysis and the influencing factors. In addition, the importance of instrumental analysis for failure analysis on plastic products will be discussed by means of examples.
