A seminar programme will run throughout the day covering a range of topics and providing solutions to your fastening design problems and materials selections / lightweighting challenges.
Places for the seminars are allocated on a first come, first served basis as space is strictly limited.
09:30-10:10 - Albis
10:30-11:10 - Engineering Polymers for Highest Temperatures
Nigel Barrow, Technical Services Manager, EMS Grivory
Grivory HT "High Temperature" has compared with standard PPA a much stronger performance at high temperature. In fact the HDT/C has been increased by 50 °C and the E-Modulus at 140 ° by 50 %. And this at a reduced melt temperature, which gives a benefit in processing. A further property of Grivory HT "High Temperature" is its outstanding creeping performance.
Grivory HT "High Temperature" allows the designing of components with reduced wall thickness offering reduced cycle time and overall reduced cost and weight saving compared with standard PPA's.
Grivory HT (Polyphthalamide, PPA), is a high temperature Polyamide from EMS-GRIVORY, Switzerland. EMS-GRIVORY is the Polyamide specialist and the European Market leader of PPA's.
5 THINGS THE DELEGATES WILL LEARN DURING THIS SESSION:
1. A guide to processing at high temperatures
2. Freedom of Design – thin walls
5.Improved performance in HT
