Bangkok, Thailand added to 2019 Training Schedule

Bangkok, Thailand has just been added to the 2019 AGR Training Seminar Schedule.  Participants can find out the answer to the question “When bottles break, can the problem be rectified by changing the composition of the glass”  in our “Fracture 1: Testing and Breakage Diagnosis of Glass Containers” Training Seminar. 

The answer to this question is NO.  Rather, we would recommend a thorough fracture analysis to determine the root cause and then use those results to institute a proper corrective action and that is exactly what you will learn in the Fracture 1 seminar.

Enrollment is now open for this May 21-23 Seminar in Bangkok.  Click here to learn more, see other locations or to register.
