The two-day conference will examine the latest advances in polyamide resins and compounds for demanding technical applications in markets such as the automotive, electrical/electronic, medical, consumer goods, construction and industrial sectors.
An international line-up of influential speakers will explore how improvements in the properties and processability of polyamides are accelerating the development of new applications, including a focus on metal replacement. Industry experts will discuss market opportunities and new applications, including case studies from a range of markets. The high-level programme will cover developments in PA 6, PA 66, PA 46, PPA and other polyamide chemistries including biobased PA resins made from renewable resources.
Important materials developments such as high-heat-resistant and high-flow resins will be included in the comprehensive programme, along with advances in specialty additives and reinforcements for polyamide compounds. Tailored formulations such as conductive, flame retardant and tribological grades will also be covered, along with developments to improve the properties of recycled resins.
Performance Polyamides 2017 will be relevant for the complete polyamide supply chain including resin producers, compounders, injection moulders, product designers, and materials specifiers at OEMs and end-users.
In addition to a busy two-day programme of conference sessions, there will be an accompanying exhibition with plenty of networking opportunities during the refreshments breaks, lunches and an evening cocktail reception.
