Paving The Way Of Metal Replacement – Ami Proudly Launches The Wear-Resistant Plastics Conference

The event will take place in Düsseldorf from
19-20 September 2018

The 1stedition of AMI’s Wear-Resistant PlasticsConference will take place at the Hotel Nikko in Düsseldorf, Germany from 19-20 September 2018.

Wear-Resistant Plastics is a new two-day conference that will focus on the critical area of polymer tribology, and explore how it can open new applications, particularly in metal replacement.
Industry experts will discuss innovative methods for optimising the wear and friction properties of plastics components. The comprehensive programme will cover wear-resistant polymers and the use of additives for modifying tribological performance.
Expert speakers will discuss materials selection and design optimisation for wear-resistant plastic components such as gears, bearings, conveyors wheels and seals. They will cover a variety of critical applications in markets including the industrial, oil and gas, electrical, automotive, aerospace and medical sectors.

The two-day programme will commence discussingnew markets and applications for wear-resistant plastics. The rest of day one will comprise sessions onformulating and producing compounds with high levels of wear resistance

Day one will conclude with presentations from DSM Engineering Plastics and Sabic Specialties looking into lowering friction with lubrication.

Day two’s sessions will commence with AGC Chemicals Europe presenting on Novel Fluoropolymer Additives for Wear and Friction Improvement.Ensinger will present on Today’s Concepts for Designing Customised Compounds Optimised for Wear-Resistance.

The speakers list also includes plastic gear producers such KISSsoft AG (part of Gleason) and yarn carrier manufacturers IşılsanPlastik.

Wear-Resistant Plastics 2018boasts a truly international audience,from across Europe, North America, and Asia. It also brings together representatives of the entire supply chain, offering unrivalled opportunities to network, exchange experience and learn through interaction with colleagues, suppliers, customers and competitors.
