POLYMER TESTING WORLD EXPO | EVENT PREVIEW


New expo puts focus on polymer testing


The first Polymer Testing World Expo takes place in Essen this month. We take a look here at some of the highlights at the free-to-attend conference and exhibition


The Polymer Testing World Expo makes its debut at Messe Essen in Germany on 29-30 September 2021. The free-to-attend conference and exhibition is intended to provide a new forum for scientists and researchers that develop, test, and analyse polymer materials, formulations and finished products. Organised by Pipe and Profile Extrusion maga- zine publisher AMI, the Polymer Testing World Expo runs alongside the Compounding World Expo, Plastics Recycling World Expo, and Plastics Recycling World Expo. In total, there will be more than 200 exhibitors and more than 100 speakers to choose from across the four exhibitions and their five focused conference theatres. “When we ran the Compounding World Expo and Plastics Recycling World Expo in Essen in 2018 we had 4,024 visitors, and more than 40% of these – 1,722 to be precise – were involved in R&D and materials testing,” says Andy Beevers, AMI’s Events Director. “We therefore decided to add an area within the event focused specifically on polymer testing and analysis, where visitors can explore new

lab technologies and stay up to date with best practices and the latest standards.”


Conference programme The dedicated conference programme for the Polymer Testing World Expo features two days of expert presentations covering a range of develop- ing testing technology topics and providing useful practical advice and tips. Speakers from some of Europe’s leading


research centres will lay out their latest findings in the area of lifetime prediction and failure analysis for plastic materials and components. For example, Christoph Zekorn from IKV will discuss failure analysis of plastics with a particular reference to instrumental techniques. In addition, Arjen Boers- ma from TNO will focus on assessing degradation behaviour of polymers and its impact on their lifetime. Accelerated ageing of polymers will be covered by Wilma Hahn from SKZ, who will speak about high-pressure autoclave testing, while Kim Bini from Elastocon will focus on developments in
