High performance at low cost – new materials for optical demanding functional parts

12:15-12:55

Günter Prautzsch, Mechanical Engineer and tool-maker, K.D, Feddersen

The compounding technology behind some engineering thermoplastics is giving designers greater opportunities due to enhanced materials performance. Find out more about the:

  • Water absorption of polyamides:
    - principle
    - influence upon material specifications
  • Polyamide 6-compounds with reduced moisture absorption:
    - Advantages vs. Standard polyamides
    - Comparison to other alternative polyamide materials (polyarylamide, PA66+PA6I/6T) for example: lamellas for VW Touran
  • Prospects for the future

DURING THIS SESSION DELEGATES WILL LEARN:

  1. Polyamides - some basic principles
  2. How compounding can reduce these negative effects and add benefits
  3. Comparison of various polyamides
  4. Current application examples in automotive
  5. Propects for the future with polyamide compounds
