AMI’s first international conference on Performance Polyamides took place on 8-9 June 2016 at the Maritim Hotel, Cologne, Germany. The event provided an important new meeting place for the complete polyamide supply chain including resin producers, compounders, injection moulders, product designers, and materials specifiers at OEMs and end-users.
The new two-day conference examined 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 explored how improvements in the properties and processability of polyamides are accelerating the development of new applications, including a focus on metal replacement. Industry experts discussed market opportunities and new applications, including case studies from a range of markets. The high-level programme covered 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 were 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.
