Chris will present four case studies of investigations concerning polymer and plastic materials. By applying multiple analytical techniques, CHEMIR’s scientists help resolve product failures, contamination issues, identification of unknown materials and extractable/leachable challenges.

The presentation will detail examples of polymer problem solving and analysis, including data interpretation and conclusions. Information also includes when and why to involve a third party analytical lab. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.

Christopher Andren specializes in polymer formulations, including their identification, characterization and quantification. He is CHEMIR’s key specialist in plastics, polymers and packaging investigations.

Christopher Andren began his career at AlliedSignal Research and Technology as a research and development chemist; and more recently served as a Staff Scientist in Research and Development at BASF Corporation, supervising a commercial development team in custom product formulations.
