Establishing the durability of new or existing products is one of the most difficult properties to obtain. This webinar will begin with an introduction to how durability is currently measured and the test methods often used.  The strengths and opportunities of this approach will be discussed.  The webinar will then describe the current research to address the opportunities presented above.  The research will be described according to the different research focus areas.  At the conclusion of this webinar, the attendees will have a broad knowledge of the not only the current tests methods, but the research in this area that will change current industry practice in determining durability.





  • Attendees will gain a fundamental knowledge of the current standards and methods used to establish durability of sealants and adhesives
  • Attendees will become familiar with the benefits and opportunities to improve the current methods
  • Attendees will learn about the current research into new approaches and methods service life prediction
  • Finally, attendees will walk away with a broad knowledge of the importance of understanding how long your products last in-service



Expert Presenter:


Dr. Christopher White - National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

Dr. Christopher White is a Research Chemist in the Polymeric Materials Group of the Materials and Structural Systems Division (MSSD) of the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Dr. White joined NIST in 1997 as a National Research Council Postdoctoral Research Associate. In his present position as a research chemist, Dr. White is involved in projects related to developing metrology for service life prediction of organic materials. He is investigating the role of acceleration on the degradation of polymeric materials, such as building sealants, thermoplastics. Dr. White is an expert in understanding how the complicated mix of rheology, thermal transport, and moisture diffusion affects the adhesive and cohesive failure related to outdoor exposure. This state-of-the-art research will result in significant progress in assessing and predicting the durability of these materials. Dr. White holds a Ph.D. (Chemistry) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and MBA from University of Maryland.
