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.

Those involved in the manufacture of blowing agents, PU foam insulation and packaging, foam extrusion and equipment manufacture were able to hear, discuss and understand the ways in which they can continue to develop and grow within the market and how our leading panel of speakers addressed such topics and issues.

These proceedings cover all the presentations from Smithers Rapra’s fifteenth internationally renowned Blowing Agents and Foaming Processes conference.
