PERFORMANCE POLYPROPYLENE | CONFERENCE PREVIEW


Adding value to PP compounds


AMI’s second Performance Polypropylene conference takes place in Cologne in Germany next month, providing an opportunity to learn more about the latest PP formulation and compounding developments


Following its successful launch last year, AMI’s Performance Polypropylene conference returns to Cologne in Germany on 14-15 May for its second edition. Demand for engineered PP compounds is growing fast, especially from the automotive industry, but also in areas such as appliances, E&E and construction. And the requirements are set high – while the pressure is on to find lightweight metal replacements that is not at the price of mechanical performance, durablility, processing and, of course, cost. Performance Polypropylene 2019 will provide a timely technical forum that will bring together key players to analyse and discuss the latest formula- tions and applications for these high-performance PP products. It is expected to bring together a global audience – last year’s launch event attracted attendees from more than 20 different countries and across the entire supply chain. The 2019 conference will provide a further opportunity to examine the latest advances in polypropylene resins and compounds for demanding technical applications across all markets. This article previews the event and takes a closer look at the interna- tional line-up of expert speakers and the topics that will be covered. The opening session of the conference focuses

on automotive applications. Matt Defosse, Market Development Manager at PolyOne in Luxem- bourg, kicks off day one with an opening presenta- tion looking at the effects of distracted drivers and rapid automotive industry change on creation of polypropylene parts for high quality car interiors. He will be followed by Dr Nuria Garcia Batista, Technical Researcher (Chemical Laboratory – Iden- tification) at AIMPLAS in Spain, who will delve further into polypropylene inside the vehicle and discus how to guarantee air quality in the passen- ger compartment. The session will be closed by Dr Michele Grazzi, Senior Scientist at LyondellBasell in Italy, who will look at the development of the
