The Evaluation of Elevated Temperature
Performance of Materials

Do you work with materials exposed to higher temperatures over time?

Tune-In to our on-demand webinar, to hear our Director of Engineering, Solomon Chiang, explains how to determine the many ways to evaluate long term thermal performance of materials.  Dr. Chiang will discuss how to navigate the minefields of thermal endurance testing. He will also provide a deeper dive into Relative Temperature Index and Thermal Classes.

By attending this webinar, you will learn the following:

– A better comprehension of the relevance, meaning, and many approaches used to calculate the RTI (Relative Thermal Index) and TI (Temperature Index) of composite and polymeric materials.

– An improved knowledge of the distinctions between the Thermal Class of Electrical Insulating Systems (EIS) using polymeric and composite materials and RTI/TI of those materials.

 – New ANSI NEMA IM60001-2022 on RTI (Relative Temperature Index) and how it improves understanding of these subjects. 

 *Attendees are eligible to receive 1.0 CEUs.
