PERFORMANCE

POLYAMIDES 2016

8-9 June 2016, Maritim Hotel, Cologne, Germany

This new 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 a wide range of 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 will also be covered,

along with developments to improve the properties of recycled resins.

Performance Polyamides 2016 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.

FIVE GOOD REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND:

1. Learn about the latest technologies to boost the
