Converting PA66 to PA6 for Automotive Applications and More
August 25, 2021 - 1:00 pm EDT
Nexeo Plastics

As material availability for NYLON 66 (PA66) continues to be constrained, automotive and other OEMs are starting to look for alternative material solutions for PA66 interior, under-the-hood, electronic and agricultural equipment applications. One similar material option to consider is NYLON 6 (PA6). This webinar, sponsored by Nexeo Plastics, will cover the opportunities and challenges of converting applications from PA66 to PA6. Attendees can learn about the property similarities between the two materials and where PA6 can potentially be used as a drop-in replacement. Find out the differences between the two materials and what types of applications can be easily converted from PA66 to PA6.

Guide to Controlling Non-Obvious Variables Using Predictive Analytics
November 10th, 2020 - 2:00 pm EDT
BTG Labs

Many assembly processes involving polymers, such as bonding, coating or printing, are vulnerable to failures due to the lack of control of non-obvious variables which directly affect the outcomes of these processes. Knowing what contaminants are threatening polymer adhesion strength and reliability, and knowing where they originate (such as a substance migrating from the bulk polymer material to the surface) is crucial to putting process controls in place to mitigate risk, reduce production costs and optimize treatment processes. Predictive analytics through real-time, quantitative surface quality measurements give manufacturers actionable data. This monitors machine health and results in measurable cost reductions. This webinar will include techniques and solutions for overcoming problems caused by unchecked variables, and strategies to control these variables starting at the process development stage.
