Topics Polyurethane

The organizer of the CASE Study conference has extended the deadline for submitting paper proposals until Aug. 30.

The two-day CASE conference covers coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers based on polyurethane and polyurea chemistry.

An opening keynote presentation from Rob Outram, an associate director of IAL Consultants in London, will detail recent developments in all the CASE segments, as well as highlighting future growth prospects in each business, giving delegates a valuable insight into the various diverse sectors.

Among the topics so far being considered for the rest of the conference program are CO2-based polyols in high-performance coatings and adhesives, bio-polyols in cast elastomers, and rape-seed-oil-based polyols for 100 percent-solids spray-applied PU coatings. More papers are requested on any of the latest developments in processing equipment and techniques; application and manufacturing processes; raw materials and chemical systems, including performance-enhancing additives for use in polyurethane-based CASE applications. Interested speakers should send a 50-100-word summary of their proposed topic to DRReed@crain.com.

The conference runs Dec. 10-11 in Amsterdam and is expected to attract more than 100 commercial and technical specialists.
