The European FP7 Research Project, Polyfire, will be holding a free to attend workshop in Brussels on Friday 31st August, 2012.
The Polyfire project was established to develop and scale-up techniques for processing halogen-free, flame retardant nanocomposite materials and coatings based on unsaturated polyester resins and organomodified clays. The project focused on developing turn-key solutions that could be easily integrated into industrial companies, in particular SMEs in Western and Eastern Europe, thereby ensuring maximum impact and benefit to the European community.
The project is coming to a close and will be holding the workshop to highlight work achieved during the project and the results that it obtained, as well as opportunities for emerging future industrial applications. The programme includes:
Project Coordinator NetComposites, along with partners Laviosa Chimica Mineraria, Fundacion Gaiker, YTRON Process Technology, Scott Bader, IRIS Vernici, APC Composite, FEPS, Sheffield Hallam University, Fundacion Tecnalia, and Procoat, are hoping that this workshop will contribute toward establishing contacts with industry and other parties involved in the field of new sustainable flame retarded unsaturated polyester resin applications.

LANXESS will open a new applications development and technical services (AD & TS) laboratory for polyurethane dispersions (PUDs) in Latina, Italy. This will be capable of supporting market needs in a variety of coatings and adhesives applications in leather and textile finishing, plastic, glass and metal substrates coatings, as well as glass fibre sizing.
Applications for composites in the sports and leisure sector will be showcased by various exhibitors at Composites Europe in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November.
Intertronics has compiled a guidance note on how to specify a dispensing robot.
