About the UTM

UTM General Brochure


Whether you already have a Polymer Char instrument or are in the process of acquiring one, and would like to learn more about the equipment in regards to daily operation, preventive maintenance, troubleshooting procedures or calculations, the UTM is a highly recommended session to take.

The meetings are organized once a year and hosted at the Polymer Char offices in Valencia, Spain, but every two years, a session is held either in China or USA.

Users may have a special interest in the Course held in Valencia, as they have at their disposal the whole range of instruments, which makes the practical sessions more effective and increases the customers’ comprehension of the instruments and techniques.

In 2018 for the first time, Polymer Char hosted two UTM sessions in different locations. The first one in Valencia, Spain, and the second meeting in Houston TX, USA (Following the ICPC Conference)..


Who should attend a UTM:

New customers that have recently acquired an instrument.  Although a customized training is held in the customer’s facilities right after a new equipment installation, it is highly recommended to combine both this training on-site and the Users Training Meeting.
Current customers who have been using their instrument for a long time may also find this program interesting as it will update them on the latest improvements and changes made.



The program is designed to provide a response to questions such as:

What are the basic polyolefin characterization techniques?

How can I operate my instrument?

How can I improve the handling of my instrument?

What should I do as preventive maintenance?

Which steps should I follow for troubleshooting?

How should I interpret my results?


The next Users Training Meeting will be organized in Valencia, Spain in May 26-27, 2022.

The program will be posted here in the upcoming weeks but you can view last edition’s program below:
