Know Your Materials…


When discussion materials, most technicians will discuss the material by the trade-name. Unfortunately, when asked what the materials are, they seldom know what the base material is.
My Thoughts
Always teach your employees the name of the actual materials they process. If they are processing PC, then discuss polycarbonate and it’s attributes, processing temperatures, drying temperatures, and any specific characteristics if you are running special grades of the material.
