Miss — Plastics Regulations 2018
11 Dec 2018 - 12 Dec 2018 • Pittsburgh, United States
Abstract:
Plastics Regulations 2018 provides expert analysis and guidance on a range of international legislative and regulatory issues that will impact on polymer producers, compounders, processors and end users doing business in the US and beyond. Organized by AMI, the two-day conference takes place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on December 11-12. The conference provides a rare opportunity to gain focused advice on a range of compliance issues at one event, providing a cost and time efficient way to protect and future-proof your business. Legal and regulatory experts cover new and impending regulations in areas such as food contact materials, biocides, nanomaterials, microplastics, medical devices, plastic recycling and various application specific legal requirements. They explain the real implications of forthcoming legislation in practical terms, highlighting the actions that different players in the plastics supply chain need to take to achieve compliance. Speakers also highlight areas of potential concern for the plastics industry going forward and recommended action to minimize negative impacts. Food contact legislation is another evolving subject that has significant implications for the suppliers of polymers, additives, compounds and masterbatch, as well as the producers of food packaging and food processing equipment. Legal experts review existing and planned regulations in this area and provide advice on how to meet them. Speakers also address other areas of legislation that have critical implications for the plastics industry, including the use of recycled plastics, biocides, nanomaterials and medical devices. Don’t get caught out by new legislative developments. Attend Plastics Regulations 2018 to discover the most effective ways to protect your business and ensure compliance!

Long-Fibre Thermoplastics 2019
05 Mar 2019 - 06 Mar 2019 • Dearborn, MI, United States
Abstract:
AMI is holding its 1st US edition of Long-Fibre Thermoplastics 2019, a conference on LFT technologies and applications, on March 5-6, 2019 in Dearborn, MI, USA. Leading experts will examine the latest developments in materials, production techniques and end-use applications which are driving growth in LFT composites. LFTs combine high strength with low weight, making them an attractive alternative to metals and to more expensive polymers. Expert speakers will cover the latest applications of LFTs in the automotive industry, which remains the dominant end-use market, and in non-automotive sectors where the material’s high-performance properties are driving rapid growth. Long-Fibre Thermoplastics 2019 will bring together leading players in the LFTs industry, key players in the LFTs supply chain, and existing and potential end-users and processors to learn more about the utilisation, formulation and processing of these versatile, high performance and light weight polymer compounds. In addition to two days of conference sessions, the event will feature a table-top exhibition and provide plenty of networking opportunities, including coffee breaks, lunches and an evening cocktail reception. Long-Fibre Thermoplastics 2019 will provide the perfect forum to get an up-to-date view on market trends and growth opportunities of LFTs. Join key industry professionals from throughout the supply chain to explore the future of LFTs, and grow your network.
