AMI’s Polymer Foam 2018 conference
took place on 28-29 November at the Marriott Hotel, Hamburg, Germany. It was the sixth time the conference has been held in Europe and it is now
well established as an important meeting place for the international industry.
The informative and comprehensive
two-day conference programme covered the latest developments in chemical
blowing agents, physical foaming, particle foam processing and syntactic foam
technology for thermoplastics, elastomers and thermosets. Delegates will
learn about advances in a wide variety of applications in areas such as construction,
infrastructure, packaging, furniture, transportation and energy generation.
Expert speakers explored how the use
of foam technology is increasing across all fields of plastics processing to
provide beneficial properties such as weight and cost reduction, heat and sound
insulation, and cushioning and impact resistance. They also discussed how innovations
in materials and additives for polymer foams are helping to drive this growth
and open up new markets.
Polymer Foam is relevant for
the entire polymer foam supply chain including resin producers, additives suppliers,
formulators, compounders, processors, product designers, materials specifiers
and end users. In addition to the busy two-day program, an exhibition runs
alongside the event, providing plenty of networking opportunities during the
refreshments breaks, lunches and an evening cocktail reception.
