AMI's 2nd international Polymer Testing & Analysis conference took
place from 4-5 April 2017 at the Maritim Hotel in Cologne, Germany.
The first edition was held in 2016 and attended by an international audience of 100 delegates from over 20 countries.
The conference offers the opportunity to discover and debate the latest innovations in
polymer testing, characterisation and analysis. Polymer
testing and analysis underpin all stages of successful plastics processing. As
the market demands new plastics products that are smaller, smarter, stronger
and safer, so the challenges for materials suppliers, designers and specifiers
increase. It is essential to understand how a material or compound will behave
during processing and how a product will respond to its user and environment.
How will a change in compound formulation affect the mechanical properties of
an end product? How will exposure to extreme weather conditions influence the
durability of a photovoltaic panel? How will cables or electrical housings behave
in a fire?
plastics markets place particular demands on plastics performance, from
degradability of a single-use packaging product to long-term stability of
construction products. End-use markets ranging from medical products to civil
infrastructure all require compliance with complex and evolving standards. How
are extractables and leachables assessed from a complex pharmaceutical package?
What are the latest regulations governing food-contact plastics? Can
accelerated oven ageing emulate the conditions experienced over a product’s
lifetime? What is the role of non-destructive testing in preventing product
processors need to understand the needs of their customers and also rely upon
testing of raw materials and products for quality assurance. Plastics materials
and products continue to evolve, processing problems can be costly and product
failures potentially catastrophic. Polymer testing equipment and techniques are
advancing to meet these challenges within a complex regulatory environment and
this new event will provide a unique forum in which to explore these issues and
discuss the latest solutions.
addition to a busy two-day programme of presentations from leading players in
the market, Polymer Testing & Analysis offered high-level networking for
professionals from throughout the plastics supply chain.

What if I cannot attend an AMI event because of bad weather, industrial action, sickness or bereavement?
Unfortunately AMI cannot take responsibility for such problems. We recommend that you ensure that your travel plans leave you enough spare time to cope with weather delays or industrial action and that your travel insurance policy will recompense you for any financial loss that you suffer as a result of being unable to travel for other reasons. Remember that if you cannot attend an event then you can always send a colleague in your place at no charge.
Do I need a visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event?
It is entirely possible that you may need a valid visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event. This is especially the case for individuals attending our events and holding non-European passports. We recommend that at the time of booking you check the visa requirements with the embassy of the host country in your home location. We are unable to give refunds to delegates who cannot attend conferences because they fail the visa requirements of the country concerned.
Does the conference programme ever change?
AMI always does its utmost to avoid changes in advertised conference programmes. However it is a fact of life that from time to time amendments have to be made as a result of changes to speakers’ circumstances or corporate change. Remember that you can always check with our conference staff on the latest status any conference programme.
Can I give a paper at an AMI Conference?
Naturally AMI welcomes offers of papers for presentation at our conferences provided such papers meet our quality and relevance requirements. Within each conference heading you will find a section on ‘Calls for Papers’, which tells you what to do if you want to offer to present a paper at a specific conference.
