Blowing Agents and Foaming Processes 2009, Conference Proceedings

Foamed substances are now being sourced as an alternative substance for applications that previously had an established material. Blowing agents or blowing gases are excellent 'fillers' and have the dual benefits of saving material and reducing weight, the latter minimising shipping and other related expenses. Today there are numerous solutions on offer - new methods, technology, processes and additives, all of which will be looked at during this conference.

Blowing Agents and Foaming Processes, 2009 is a well established conference and the only event world-wide offering such a prestigious range of academic, practical and industrial papers. All technical papers presented at this event are included in the proceedings and focus on; blowing agents and gases specialities, nano structures, foam injection moulding, new extrusion findings and microcellular foams.

 All technical papers presented at the Conference are inlcuded in the Conference Proceedings
