When developing your custom-engineered porous polymer components, it’s easy to focus only on the physical and chemical characteristics of the material itself. However, an area that is critical to understand as early as possible in the development process is how the final material will be assembled into the end product or device. One of the many benefits of porous polymers is their ability to be converted and assembled into end products via many different methods; however, each porous technology platform is unique in its converting and assembling capabilities. 

In this webinar, first learn the many possibilities of die-cutting and converting in a wide variety of applications – from chromatography frits to wicks to vents. Jaclyn Skagerlind from Interstate Specialty Products, one of Porex’s preferred converters, will take you through the different types of die-cutting used with porous polymers and what to consider when converting materials at different points in your product’s lifecycle. Then join Will Raybon, strategic market manager at Porex, to discuss how converting and assembly methods vary across the four porous polymer technology platforms – sintered porous plastics, porous fiber, porous foam, and porous membranes – and how to choose the best materials while keeping your end product’s assembly needs in mind.

What you’ll learn:

  • Explore how die-cutting works from a world-class converter of porous polymers
  • See the difference in converting & assembly options among the four porous technologies
  • Learn what to ask when designing your end product with porous polymers
