Loudon, Tennessee - The US Polyurethane Foam Association has issued a call for papers for the PFA Technical Program, being held 8 Nov 2012 in Hilton Head, South Carolina. The association has set a 24 Aug deadline for submitting requests for these 30 minute technical presentations.
The PFA welcomes technical papers summarising recent research, new products and technologies related to slabstock and moulded flexible polyurethane foam; innovations in raw materials and formulation, emissions management and new processing techniques; flammability testing, and other foam-producer-focused technical presentations are welcomed.
PFA also encourages papers on product sustainability and environmental issues that may affect flexible polyurethane foam production, specification and recycling.
The PFA notes that "papers must have a non-sales focus and specifically address topics related to slabstock or moulded flexible polyurethane foam production in North America."
Those interested should submit a short summary of the intended content with their request to make a presentation to Bob Luedeka, PFA executive director ([email protected]).
The technical programme will includes at least six technical papers, which will be scored to compete for a $500 Technical Excellence Award provided by the Herman Stone Family Endowment.
Hotel and meeting registration for the event begins 1 Sept 2012.
