Metal replacement with engineered thermoplastics is entering a new, more advanced phase, with the need for plastics to answer more demanding requirements. These include offering strength and stiffness and also managing heat, addressing electro-static discharge, and even matching the density of metal when necessary.
Presented By:
David Sanchez

Length: 90 min

Why should you view this webinar?

This webinar highlights challenges manufacturers face when replacing metal, and identifies thermoplastic solutions to these challenges.

You will learn about using polymer solutions to manage heat and static discharge, to maintain lubricity without oils or other lubricants, to reduce weight without losing strength and stiffness, and much more. No matter in which industry you operate, there are polymer solutions available to help you overcome the challenges of reducing the weight of end products, improving manufacturing efficiency, and maintaining or improving product performance.

Who should view this webinar?

Industrial designers, engineers and anyone involved in injection molding of technical parts will benefit from the information presented in this webinar.

The Q&A offers the chance to ask in-depth questions.
