AMI’s Polymer Foam 2019 conference will take place on 26-27 November at the Marriott Hotel, Hamburg, Germany. It will be the seventh 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 will cover 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 will explore 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 will also discuss 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.
