Fourteenth International Conference

8-9 May 2012, Berlin, Germany

This conference is the industry forum to network, and expand your business ideas and knowledge.

As raw material costs still continue to pose a significant economic challenge to manufacturers in high volume markets, end-users are increasingly sourcing novel materials that represent cost-effective alternatives to traditional choices.  This conference is an opportunity for companies using or considering using expansion processes. For many, foamed substrates can offer the answer to these ever spiralling expenses as blowing agents and blowing gases are excellent “fillers” and have the dual benefits of saving material and reducing weight (which in turn reduces transportation costs).

Today there are numerous solutions on offer – new methods, resins, technology, processes and additives and it seems that demand for higher performance and lower costs is set to once again drive technical developments in polymeric foams.

The Blowing Agents & Foaming Processes conference returns for the fourteenth consecutive year to highlight the academic and commercial developments in current and new polymeric foam applications. As the only conference tailored to the specific needs of the polymeric foam industry, this event provides a forum for speakers to showcase, and delegates to learn about new materials and processing technologies that will improve current application performance and benefit from improving or replacing existing material and process selections.

This year we are delighted to have the support of Gold Conference Sponsor Sabic. Sabic will be giving a paper at this conference on the design of experiments in physical foaming and its relationship to foam polyolefins and will also be hosting a special evening drinks reception for all conference delegates on 8 May.
