TechTalk - Materials Science Basics, Part 2

Part 2 in this TechTalk webinar series presented by Swagelok's senior material scientist, Dr. Bob Bianco, on Thursday, February 11th at 11 am continues on his introduction to materials science from Part 1 that was held on January 14th (a recording of that session will be available here soon). The properties of the materials that comprise your fluid system components have significant impact on their compatibility and performance. By understanding the basics of their materials of construction, you will be better equipped to choose components that help achieve your operational goals.

A short Q&A will available the end of this 30-minute webinar.

Below is a short summary of topics that will be addressed during the webinar. Did you miss Part 1? View the recorded session here.
