Our warfighters must constantly adapt to changing conditions, as so must their equipment. The increasing presence of insurgents has moved the fighting into urban areas, bringing new challenges. Equipment must be adapted to these changes to achieve the increased flexibility, durability, and functionality required. In this webinar, Ben Harrison and Mario Del Real of Kaysun Corporation will examine just how instrumental plastics are in meeting the defense industry’s demands. Topics will cover plastics’ many advantages over metals, from its lighter weight and resistance to corrosion to its more efficient and adaptable manufacturing processes. Harrison and Del Real will also address plastics’ greater freedom of design, precise and consistent achievement of tight-tolerance requirements, and lower cost to produce, ship, and maintain.

The webinar will include case studies illustrating how Kaysun Corporation, a company with 60 years’ expertise in plastics engineering, has helped defense manufacturing partners overcome significant design challenges and decrease their total costs through innovative engineering of polymers. These examples will give participants a clear understanding of the range of solutions available with these versatile materials.
