To offer a drop-in solution to overcome the PA66 shortage, we developed an alternative material: The Akulon® IG series is a portfolio of material grades made by combining the strength of PA6 and PA46 – two materials that are fully independent of the Adiponitrile/hexamethyldiamine supply.
You’re Invited to Attend the Advanced Materials Forum Europe, April 23
We are less than two months away from DSM’s Advanced Materials Forum (AMF) Europe on Thursday, April 23, 2020. We are very excited to offer you the opportunity to attend this free 100% online event.
AMF Europe will gather the brightest minds from the automotive and electronics communities to give you the latest application insights and best practices in the industry, along with the latest innovations and advancements.
Last year, we came up with the concept of AMF Europe — to create an innovative virtual event that is convenient and cost-effective for you. We understand that you have a jampacked calendar, and many industry professionals simply do not have the time to travel to conferences, let alone fit them into their busy schedules.
The beauty of attending AMF is that you can access the event from your office, home computer or anywhere there is a WIFI connection. There is no air travel or hotel accommodations to offset, nor any plastic cups or silver wear to throw away after the event. Not only is AMF easily accessible, it is sustainable too!
Latest innovations & best practices
The online event features education-building resources, including sessions targeting three tracks: Material Science, Material Trends and Industry Applications. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the latest innovations in sustainability initiatives, bio-based plastics, automotive lightweighting, additive manufacturing and so much more. You will hear from industry veterans that have seen it all and get their perspective on the future of the materials science industry.
You can choose to attend sessions from different tracks, or pick out one of these specific tracks to attend:
Material Science Track: Gain the latest insights in polymer science best practices from DSM’s global team of material scientists. Session topics include:
- Sustainable Mobility, Connectivity, Safety and EMI Shielding
