Polyamide & Intermediates ConferenceP R O G R A M M E 1 4 - 1 5 O C T O B E R 2 0 0 9Polyamides have a long history ofpioneering new applications, both as fibresand now increasingly as engineeringpolymers. Competition from other fibres isstrong, but PA textile filament is holding itsplace in applications where its uniquetoughness and comfort-to-the-touchproperties are at a premium, whileindustrial filament continues to grow in newapplications such as airbags. Polyamidesoffer high performance-to-price inengineering applications, for examplemaking a continuing contribution to weightreduction in automobiles, assisting the driveto greater fuel efficiency. The extensiveproperties of the polymers, principally PA6and PA66 but supported by a range ofhigher polyamides, with their highcompatibility with reinforcements, enableprocessors to develop the ideal compoundfor a new component.The Polyamide & Intermediates conferencewill provide a platform to review thepanoply of new uses being made ofpolyamides, while assessing the supplyposition of the intermediates – caprolactam,adipic acid, HMDA, etc. – from establishedfirms but also some newcomers. TheOctober 14-15 conference will provide youwith an unrivalled opportunity to hear aboutthe latest developments in polyamideapplications, to learn about opportunitiesfor diversification and to meet key playersfrom around the world in the polyamidebusiness.Wednesday 14 October08.00 Registration08.55SESSION ONE – WORLD OVERVIEWChairperson: Roger Lee – Tecnon OrbiChem09.00-09.301.1 Polyamide Chain Global OverviewCharles Fryer, Chairman, Tecnon OrbiChem09.30-10.001.2 PA 66: A Producer’s View of the Past andthe FutureSpeaker to be Confirmed, Rhodia10.00-10.301.3 Changes to the Fiber World Due toPolymers’ InfluencesMr Andre Lienert, VP, Swisstex10.30-10.45 Discussion10.45-11.15 Refreshments11.15SESSION TWO – NEW DEVELOPMENTSChairperson: Charles Fryer - Tecnon OrbiChem11.15-11.452.1 New Challenges from the Polyamide 6Market.
