AIMPLAS and PINFA are glad to present the sixth edition of their Workshop on Flame Retardant Plastics. We will be delighted to see you face to face again on the 19th of April at AIMPLAS facilities. The workshop aims to give an overview of flame retardant additives and how polymers have to be formulated to achieve proper fire retardant properties according to application requirements. Moreover, the main tips for optimum processing will be explained as well as compounding process simulation to avoid flame retardant degradation which could cause product claims from clients. Sustainability will be discussed from different points of view: biobased and renewable resources solutions and chemical recycling.
