Get your annual update on the global Polymer testing and analysis industry at our reputable Polymer Testing & Analysis Conference. Rely on AMI's 30+ years of bringing the leaders in polymer testing & analysis together so you can network with your industry peers and update your expertise from the world-class conference programme. The 4th edition of AMI's international Polymer Testing & Analysis conference will take place on 18-19 September 2019 at the Nikko Hotel, Dusseldorf, Germany. The event is now established as an important international meeting place for scientists, laboratory staff, researchers and R&D professionals who develop, test and analyse new polymer materials, formulations and products. It provides a unique opportunity to discover and debate the latest innovations in testing, characterisation and analysis techniques specifically for plastics materials and products.End-users are demanding products that are smaller, smarter and stronger. In addition, regulators are setting more stringent controls and standards for materials and components regarding their safety and environmental impact. These requirements are creating tough challenges for materials suppliers, designers, specifiers and processors. It is increasingly important to understand how materials will behave during processing and how a product will perform when it is put to use.The latest testing and analysis techniques for determining such characteristics and properties will be covered in depth at the conference by an international selection of speakers, including representatives from leading test organisations, academic institutions, equipment suppliers, plastics suppliers, and end-users.They will deliver detailed presentations on a wide range of topics, such as the assessment of polymer stability, mechanical properties, flow characteristics, fire retardancy emissions, surface quality, and colour control. There will also be talks on the latest polymer analysis techniques, quality control methods, non-destructive testing technologies, and failure analysis. In addition to the busy programme of presentations from leading players in the market, Polymer Testing & Analysis 2018 will offer high-level networking opportunities in a focused exhibition area featuring displays from a range of suppliers.
