Compounding World Congress 2019

CWC 2019 - bannerThe 4th edition of the Compounding World Congress will take place on 4-5 June 2019 at the Maritim Hotel, Cologne, Germany. This conference will build on the success of the previous Compounding World events around the world, creating a vibrant meeting place for thermoplastics compounders from throughout Europe and beyond.

The event’s high-level program will cover business strategies and new materials technologies, as well as providing practical advice on getting the most from compounding lines. Its primary focus will be on the production of technical compounds based on engineering thermoplastics, thermoplastic
elastomers and performance polyolefins for demanding applications in markets such as the
automotive, electrical/electronic, medical and industrial sectors.

Dedicated sessions will focus on the latest additives, fillers and formulations for adding value and new functionality to thermoplastics. In addition, there will be analysis of key market trends in the compounding industry, plus discussions on how to grow business in an increasingly competitive global arena. Experts will also cover new developments in processing technology and provide tips on how to optimize compounding operations

Make sure to follow Tom Daniëls' presentation on 'Using the latest metal fiber technologies to significantly increase the electrical conductivity of thermoplastic compounds for EMI and ESD applications' (June 5th, Session 5, 09:10 – 09:40 am). In this presentation, Tom Daniëls will present the unique benefits of increasing the electrical conductivity by adding stainless steel fiber. He will discuss the most recent developments at Bekaert in the area of metal fiber production. 

Come visit us at Table 9. We look forward to seeing you there!
