This new, live webinar in our “Spotlight On” series, consists of 2 sessions of instruction and will provide an in-depth exploration of the  purpose of surface treatments that are applied to glass containers.  It will demonstrate the protection provided and indicate how the coatings ensure satisfactory container performance.
 
Topics covered include the general aspects related to the application and function of the hot end and cold end  coatings.  An introduction to the instruments and test methods used to evaluate the quality of surface treatments will also be presented. Participants will also become familiar with the practical aspects of interpreting coating measurements through the use of case studies.
 
The two live 1+ hour sessions will be conducted by AGR Research Scientist Doug Holscher who holds a BS in Chemistry from Shippensburg University.

For those unable to view the live broadcast, the webinar will be recorded and attendees can replay the presentation at their convenience. 

The first of the two live sessions will be conducted on Tuesday September 21 and the second on Thursday September 23 at 9:00 EDT/13:00 GMT/15:00 CEST.  The cost is $375 per person. Group discounts are available.

IN-PERSON TRAINING SEMINAR ADDED IN NOVEMBER         
"Evaluation and Lightweighting of Glass Container Designs" in-person training seminar will be conducted on November 16 & 17.
 


Participants will learn key design principles necessary to achieve acceptable bottle performance. Skills are taught that can be used to evaluate finite element analysis (FEA) of new concept designs. In addition, improvements in existing designs and techniques for lightweighting container will be covered.



Topics to be covered:

  • The Principles of Design and Performance Requirements
  • The Effect of Loads and Stresses as they relate to Bottle Design Issues
  • Establishing Glass Surface Strength Criteria and the Selection of
  • Strength Indices
  • Design Sensitivities                                          
  • Lightweighting opportunities, advantages and thickness distribution considerations
  • Impact Equivalence
  • Bottle Design Workshops and Case Studies
This in-person seminar will be held on our Butler, PA Campus. Learn more or register HERE.
