Developing technologies and applications for electrically and thermally conductive plastics
AMI is pleased to announce its first Conductive Plastics conference, which will take place from the 29th June to the 1st July 2015 at the Hotel Nikko in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Interest in the use of thermally conductive and electrically conductive thermoplastic compounds as replacements for metals is growing fast across a wide range of demanding applications. These include LED lighting, automotive components, electronics manufacturing, electromagnetic shielding, and ATEX applications for reducing the risk of explosion.
The Conductive Plastics 2015 conference will examine how to optimise the design and production of thermally conductive or electrically conductive plastics components, and will address the critical influence of processing parameters on the properties of finished parts. Expert presentations will explore the latest and emerging additive technologies for tailoring the thermal or electrical conductivity of plastics, and will discuss how to formulate compounds that deliver the required balance of properties.
In addition, this high level conference will provide insights into the emerging market opportunities for conductive plastics and present case studies based on leading edge applications. In particular, it will look at how the design and production flexibility provided by conductive plastics, combined with their competitive cost and light weight, are opening up exciting new opportunities for compounders, processors, designers and OEMs.
Conductive Plastics 2015 will be an essential meeting place for anyone working on the development and production of conductive compounds, or those involved in the design and manufacture of products using such materials.
