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: Advanced Materials Forum North America, Nov. 12
We are less than one month away from DSM’s inaugural Advanced Materials Forum (AMF) North America on Nov. 12, 2019, and we are very excited to offer you the opportunity to attend this 100% free online event.
AMF 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.
Earlier this year, we came up with the concept of AMF— to create an innovative virtual event that is convenient and cost-effective for you. We realize 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 or home computer. 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 for you, it is environmentally friendly too!
Latest innovations & best practices
The virtual forum features education-building resources, including sessions and panel discussions targeting material science, material trends and industry applications. As an attendee you will learn about the latest innovations in sustainability initiatives, bio-based plastics, automotive lightweighting, additive manufacturing, predictive engineering and 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 Polymer Innovation, Creep of Engineering Plastics, Fatigue of Engineering Plastics, and Heat Aging of Engineering Plastics.
Material Trends Track: Engineering plastics is a complex industry that’s constantly evolving. Learn from industry veterans and get their perspective on the future of the industry. Session topics include Challenges Processing Today’s Advanced Materials, Exploring PA66 Alternatives, and Trends in CAE Analysis.
Industry Applications Track: Learn how we are working with automotive, electronics, and industrial customers to drive innovative solutions to complex engineering challenges. Session topics include The Latest in Automotive Lightweighting, High-Voltage Challenges in Automotive, Material Solutions for E&E Connectors, and Leveraging Thermoplastic Elastomers in Consumer Goods, Medical Devices and Industrial Applications.
Senior engineering and design leaders in the Americas region seeking to improve automotive, electronics, electrical and industrial applications through material science innovation 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 attend this virtual forum.
