Webinar FAQs: Plastic Bonding Masterclass questions answered

Thomas Besley | 2 min. read

In the world of industrial manufacturing, bonding plastics is a nuanced and intricate process. Whatever market you’re in, understanding the intricacies of plastic bonding is crucial to ensuring product durability and performance.

This is why we’ve joined forces with industry experts to help you understand the plastic bonding process. From plastic selection to adhesive choice, we’ve got it all covered in The Plastic Bonding Masterclass.

This short post will help you understand the webinar to understand what it’s all about.

Why should you Attend the Plastic Bonding Masterclass?

  1. Expert Insights: You’re not just tapping into Forgeway’s extensive experience on this topic. We’ve also invited two distinguished guest speakers to share their expertise:
    • Jeff Jansen: A seasoned professional from a renowned plastic consulting company, Jeff brings a wealth of experience in assisting companies with their plastic applications. He will be discussing why plastics (polymers) have become more popular, what the different types of plastics there are, and which one you should choose for your application.
    • Professor John Watts: A leading figure in materials science from the University of Surrey, Professor Watts will provide a special video segment focusing on surface analysis and adhesion. His insights into the science behind bonding are not to be missed. Professor Watts will discuss the important of preparing plastics’ surfaces before bonding, why surface energy plays a critical role in adhesion, and what you need to consider when preparing plastics.
  2. Practical Applications: A representative from Forgeway will also be presenting, offering practical insights and solutions from our extensive experience in the adhesive industry.
  3. Interactive Q&A Session: Have questions? Our Q&A session at the end of the presentations ensures you leave with clarity and actionable knowledge.
