Ascend Performance Materials, the largest fully integrated producer of PA66 resin, will be presenting on heat-stabilized and electrically-neutral nylon 6,6 compounds at the 2017 Performance Polyamides conference.

The presentation, titled “Heat-stable and electrically-neutral PA66 compounds for sensors and connectors used in harsh environments”, will focus on Ascend’s Vydyne ® J Series. Vydyne J Series compounds are electrically neutral, heat-stabilized, and offer enhanced flow for the molding of thin wall parts and improved productivity, as well as high dielectric strength and dimensional stability for miniaturized applications such as connectors and other intricate components.

“In working with automotive parts and electrical and electronic component manufacturers, we have developed a number of nylon 6,6 solutions for use in harsh environments,” said Jeff Fritsch, Ascend’s business development manager for Europe. “Vydyne products deliver superior hydrolysis, chemical and heat resistance, and are used in numerous sensors and connector applications. The unique properties of our nylon 6,6 resins and compounds are helping the automotive industry adapt to new technologies and global trends.”

Ascend’s presentation will be given on June 7, 2017, at the Maritim Hotel in Cologne, Germany.
