The second edition of Wear-Resistant Plastics provides a unique forum to evaluate and debate the latest advancements in polymer tribology, and explore how they can open new applications, particularly in metal replacement.
Industry experts will discuss innovative methods for optimising the wear and friction properties of plastics components, such as gears, bearings, conveyors wheels and seals.
Looking at a variety of technical applications in markets including automotive, electrical and industrial, the comprehensive programme takes a critical look at topical issues including the modification of compounds through lubrication, the use of new additives, and testing as a way to measure success.
New for this year is a speed networking session and academy-led round table discussions, designed to maximise your opportunity to exchange ideas and establish business relationships which extend beyond the scope of the conference.
The two-day programme will commence with a market overview examining how tribological applications have progressed sine last year’s conference. The rest of day one will investigate applications into plastics gear, innovative methods to improve tribological properties, and modification through lubrication, including a presentation from LATI and CONTINENTAL BRAKES on the development of self-lubricating sleeves for steel cables.
Day two’s sessions will commence with a session on testing including DIEHL METERING presenting on the correlation between numerical simulations, laboratory tests and product lifetime to save time and money.
Wear-Resistant Plastics 2019 brings together representatives of the entire supply chain, offering unrivalled opportunities to network, exchange experience and learn through interaction with colleagues, suppliers, customers and competitors.
