UL Webinar to Explore Sourcing Alternate Materials amid Plastics Supply Chain Disruption


UL is hosting a free webinar on the ongoing disruption to the plastics manufacturing business and solutions for manufacturers seeking material substitution.

One effect of COVID-19 has been a short supply of plastic raw materials, with complications ranging from the shutdown of production plants to transportation delays. UL’s webinar will provide guidance for both plastic users and manufacturers who need to keep business moving forward, with topics including:

  • How to evaluate comparable materials
  • How to analyze applications for materials
  • Considerations for end-product certification related to material substitutions
  • UL Product IQ and Prospector tools to identify potential materials and polymeric ingredients for substitution
  • Expedited recognition of materials using UL’s polymer variation program
  • Q&A with a UL plastics expert

The complimentary webinar will be held on Wednesday, March 24, from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. CDT. Learn more and register on UL’s website.
