The conference in 2017 will return to the Hilton Brighton Metropole
PVC 2017 is calling for papers to be submitted for consideration for next year’s conference ahead of the closing deadline of 30 June 2016.
The organisers say the focus continues to be on providing a full and varied programme that covers all aspects of PVC, emphasizing how the material continues to develop, meet business and sustainability challenges and inspire innovation across its vast range of applications.
PVC 2014 demonstrated that the Brighton Conference continues to be the World’s largest and most reputable conference, supporting the future of PVC across the world through information, education, debate and discussion.
- The programme aims to include advances, developments and trends in:
- Strategy/direction and markets
- Construction applications
- Plastisols and flexible area
- Processing efficiency and technology including a special focus on cost efficiency improvement
- Performance covering (but not limited to) design innovation, properties and structure, composites, failure analysis
- Heat stabilisation and lubrication
- Additives – property modifiers, fillers, flame retardants, pigments and plasticisers
- Sustainability covering the circular economy, recovery, recycling and social aspects
- Polymerisation, resin development and production
The event in 2014 attracted some 450 delegates, and, with numbers for next year’s event expected to surpass this, chosen papers will be presented to a significant audience of PVC professionals.
