Perfect for design and manufacturing engineers who either have a potential product concept or need to fix a problem with an existing product, this webinar will explore the science behind porous polymers and how to select the right type of material for your application. Attendees will learn about the differences between the three core technologies of porous polymers – sintered particles, bonded fiber, and open-cell foam – and how they are used inside finished products to absorb, apply, diffuse, filter, vent, or wick. Achieving each of these functionalities requires different technical considerations for both designing and assembling the porous component into the final product.
