Wellesley, Mass (PRWEB) December 22, 2014
Now in its 26th year, BCC Research's annual CONFERENCE ON RECENT ADVANCES IN FLAME RETARDANCY OF POLYMERIC MATERIALS is the premier event of its kind in the United States. It will be held at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel in Stamford, Connecticut, from May 18-20, 2015.
Geared specifically toward scientists and other technical specialists, this conference provides insight into recent developments in the flame retardancy industry. Presented by experts from both government/academia and the commercial/industrial sectors, it brings together industry leaders from around the world and offers excellent networking opportunities within an intimate framework.
"The Flame Conference is a focused forum for FR industry professionals. Scientists and technologists gather to share knowledge and learn about the latest technological innovation in flame retardant materials. Our speakers are prominent experts presenting their latest work as well as speaking with attendees one on one. It’s a very highly regarded conference and draws scientists from around the world who are working to move our industry forward,” said Conference Director, Charles Wilkie.
The conference will be preceded by an interactive "short course" for industry newcomers on the Selection, Evaluation, and Commercial Application of Flame Retardant Polymers on May 17, 2015. The course explains how flame retardancy occurs, how it is evaluated, and commercially available fire retardants.
Government regulations and industry standards obligate manufacturers to add flame retardant chemicals to a wide range of products that are used every day. Industry participants actively seek to develop new compounds and increase the efficacy of fire retardants, which are responsible for saving countless lives and reducing the incidence of fire. Flame retardant chemicals are expected to gain market share over the coming years, according to BCC Research’s related market research report, Flame Retardant Chemicals: Technologies and Global Markets.
