Frankfurt, Germany - The FSK, the German association for foamed plastics processors and their suppliers, has issued the detailed programme for its Foamed Materials Conference, to be held 17-19 Nov 2008 at the Maritim Hotel, Würzburg, Germany.
While the conference covers all types of plastic foams, presentations of particular interest to the urethanes processors include ones on panels made from PUR for refrigerated vehicles from SchmitzCargobull, on specifications for foamed materials for upholstered furniture and on issues to do with the REACH regulations as they affect the foam sector.
The meeting also includes two half-day workshops, one on Monday 17 Nov on rail vehicle specifications and one on Wed 19 Nov 2008 on surfaces and coatings.
During the meeting the FSK will also present its regular Innovation Award for Polyurethanes for 2008.
