Master Biocide Integration: Prevent Degradation & Extend Polymer Life

83 Day(s) left to register

Friday Oct 4, 2024

Select the right biocide for your specific polymer (polyolefins, polyesters, and polyamides...) and application requirements for preserving your polymer integrity and for mitigating microbial threats. Learn to navigate the complexities of biocide compatibility, ensuring optimal performance without compromising your polymer's properties.


Unveil the secrets behind biocide testing methods! This course will walk you through the different tests used to evaluate a biocide's effectiveness. With this knowledge, you'll be well-equipped to make informed decisions when choosing a biocide for your specific needs. Join Expert Andrea Morandini to: 

  • Overcome formulation challenges by learning strategies for effective biocide compatibility, release, and durability.
  • Explore various methods for integrating biocides( bio-based, non bio-based...) into polymers with minimal impact on properties.
  • Discover techniques for evaluating biocide efficacy and migration behavior.

Why should you attend?

Ever watch a promising polymer get eaten away by microbes and fall apart? Frustrating, right? But what if you could design polymers that fight back?

Don't let microbes break down your polymers! Our Biocides Integration in Polymers course equips you to fight back. Learn how to use biocides – powerful additives that combat bacteria, mold, and other threats. By integrating biocides effectively, you'll extend the life of your polymers, improve their performance, and ensure they last longer.


This course tackles the key challenges: 


  1. Even Distribution: Discover strategies for ensuring the biocide is evenly dispersed throughout your polymer matrix, maximizing its effectiveness.

  2. Compatibility Made Easy: Learn how to choose biocides that work seamlessly with your chosen polymer, avoiding unwanted interactions.

  3. Controlled Release: Master the art of finding the perfect balance – releasing enough biocide to fight microbes effectively while minimizing unwanted leaching into the environment.

  4. Regulation Ready: Navigate the complexities of biocide regulations (EU, REACH...) with confidence. Gain in-depth knowledge to ensure your creations comply with environmental standards.


By mastering these aspects, you'll be well-equipped to integrate biocides effectively, extending the life and performance of your polymers while remaining environmentally responsible.
