The international exhibition for the polymer testing industry

Professionals from throughout the materials supply chain will come together at Polymer Testing Expo 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 and Plastics Recycling World Expo.

Arjen Boersma
Senior Scientist

Dr. Arjen Boersma is a senior scientist at TNO working in the field of material development and implementation in a circular economy: e.g. hydrogen storage and sensing, plastic recycling and durability, and microplastics. His research focusses on the relation between the chemistry and composition of materials (polymers, ceramics and composites) and their changing properties when exposed to a challenging environment. In addition, his knowledge on material behavior is also implemented for the assessment of the ageing of polymer materials in down hole conditions, to predict the long-term durability of these materials.  

Arjen Boersma received his PhD in polymer technology in 1998 at the TUDelft, Netherlands on the dielectric properties of polymers and blends. He has been working at TNO for 20 years. He has 46 journal publications and holds 20 patents.
