Engineering plastics have seen widespread use in demanding aerospace, military, and industrial applications. These materials have unique mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties that allow them to perform in conditions where other materials will rapidly fail. This presentation will include an overview of plastic material selection and plastic part design. A number of new plastics that offer quality improvements and cost savings compared with traditional plastics will be introduced.

Keith is a nationally recognized author and speaker on plastic materials and plastic part design. Read Keith's full biography.
