Save the Date: You are invited to attend Advanced Materials Forum India & Southeast Asia, Sept. 8, 2021

With one month away from DSM’s Advanced Materials Forum (AMF) India & Southeast Asia on Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2021, we are very excited to offer you the opportunity to attend this 100% free online event.

The AMF India & Southeast Asia will gather the brightest minds in materials science to give you the latest best practices and applications insights in the industry, along with cutting-edge innovations and advancements.

The beauty of AMF India & Southeast Asia is that you can access the event from your home-office computer or anywhere there is a WIFI connection. AMF India & Southeast Asia is not only easily accessible, it is sustainable too—no air travel or hotel accommodations to offset, nor any plastic cups or silver wear to throw away after the event. 

Materials Science, Sustainability and Industry Applications 

The online event features education-building resources, including sessions targeting two tracks:

  • Material Science & Sustainability
  • Industry Applications

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the latest innovations in sustainability initiatives and bio-based plastics, plus design considerations for engineered applications and the importance of utilizing electronics-friendly polyamides. In addition, experts will explore key material trends in the healthcare, water contact, and automotive segments, including electric vehicle charging plugs and how to make electronic components thinner, stronger and safer. You will hear from industry veterans that have seen it all and get their perspective on the future of the material science.

Who should attend?

Senior engineering and design leaders in India and Southeast Asia seeking to improve automotive, electronics, electrical, healthcare and water contact applications through material science innovations are encouraged to attend AMF. Engineers and designers looking to learn about innovative materials solutions that can be applied to applications in the above-mentioned industry sectors are also welcomed to join this virtual forum.

Stay-tuned for more event details!

  • Leveraging safe, high-performance materials for kitchen utensils

    Consumers and regulators are concerned with the potential health risks posed by plastic kitchen utensils. In the past decade, the U.S. FDA and European Commission have banned or restricted potentially carcinogenic substances commonly found in food utensils and packaging. As a result, household goods manufacturers are under pressure to ensure cookware meets evolving food contact safety regulations. Plus, consumers expect high-quality, long-lasting products that are environmentally friendly and available at a low cost.

  • Reducing the risk of electronic failure in vehicles with halide-free materials

    As automotive electronics become more powerful and complex, they generate higher power levels and more heat, increasing the risk of electrical failure and fire. Some suppliers use ionic additives to improve the thermal and flame retardant performance of the components used. These additives can form acids that corrode electrical contacts after prolonged exposure to heat and moisture, causing an electronic component to fail or change its characteristics, which may compromise a vehicle safety feature, such as a sensor.

  • Driving electric two-wheeler adoption with advanced materials

    More Indian manufacturers are leveraging non-lithium-ion battery (LiB) technology to meet demand for two-wheelers that offer improved range and faster charging times. Although this strategy drives long-term time and cost-savings, accidental damage to non-LiBs or LiBs, as well as the higher voltage levels needed to accelerate recharging cycles, can pose serious fire and electrical safety risks. Learn which material solutions will ensure two-wheelers are safe and reliable.
