On 07 June, the HTWK University of Applied Scienes in Leipzig, Germany, will run an introduction course dedicated to the production, application and testing of plastics in the packaging sector.
Limited to 10 participants, this German language course is ideal to offer employees a solid theoretical and practical base knowledge in the plastics used in flexible packaging, their applications, limitations, and testing processes. It places particular emphasis on understanding the relationships between the chemical structure, use and limitations of plastics for flexible packaging. Important steps in the manufacture of packaging are highlighted as well as the crucial aspects regarding the barrier properties of different types of plastics. The theoretical concepts will be supported by practical exercises in testing packaging materials in this workshop.
The limited pool allows every participants to take a hands-on approach in every step of the process. This allows each participant to actively participate in each production step, which provides a better understanding of the entire process.
