– with suprising properties
27. august 2020
Gl. Færgevej 30
Join this seminar to learn about new developments within functional plastic materials and surfaces. The speakers present a broad range of materials with surprising properties that can add functionality to your products or allow you to use plastics in new applications.
The target audience is curious engineers, designers, and product developers who are looking for inspiration and knowledge about concrete plastic materials that can add new functionality to existing or future products.
You will hear about antibacterial plastics, light-altering surfaces, carbon nanotube-reinforced plastics, a bio-based EPS alternative, a new fingerprinting technology for plastics, water-soluble plastics, vibration-dampening plastics, high-end bioplastics, and many other interesting materials and technologies.
The seminar is a great opportunity to get inspired and stay updated. It is also an opportunity to expand your network and meet new collaborators and business partners.

Plastic fantastic materials
Erik presents plastic materials and surfaces with surprising properties. You will learn about light-altering micro-structures, 3D-printed optics, digital embossing, laser transfer decoration, a new type of shapeable silicone dough, low melting point plastics, plastic finger-printing, and many other interesting materials and technologies that you don’t find in your classic material compendium.

On the verge of unleashing the phenomenal characteristics of carbon nanotubes in plastics
Henrik Pedersen, CEO, Nanocore
Since the discovery of carbon nanotubes (CNT) almost 30 years ago, the extreme characteristics of CNT such as high strength (20x the tensile strength of carbon fiber), high electrical- and heat conductivity (10x and 1000x that of copper, respectively), and attractive fluorescence- and luminescence characteristics, have attracted much attention. Researchers world-wide have attempted to exploit these characteristics in solar cells, batteries, high strength-structures, and smart materials – so far with limited success. Efficient dispersion and anchoring of the CNT in the composite has so far been impossible, thereby making it impossible to unleash the potential of the carbon nanotubes in these highly attractive applications.

Anti-microbial surfaces – how it works and challenges meeting the real world
Daniel Minzari, Senior Project Manager, IPU
Several strategies have been attempted in the quest for making surfaces antimicrobial and/or self-cleaning, but implementation remains challenging for most commercial applications. Consequences caused by unwanted/ unknown reactions can be disastrous.

Ultra and High Performance Polymers
Jakob Clemen, Sales Engineer, Molytex
With basis in specific cases we will discuss the benefits of using high performance polymers in terms of functionality and production and we will be covering various additives like glass, carbon, PTFE, metal ect. We will discuss when a high performance polymer is needed and what can be achieved with a more traditional plastics like nylon, POM or ABS in comparison.Jakob Clemen works as Sales Engineer at Molytex which is an injection moulding company. Molytex specialized in manufacturing plastic parts in high performance polymers. This covers polymers such as PEI, PEEK, PPS, and Polysulfone but also more common polymers such as PBT, nylon, POM, polycarbonate and ABS.
