This October iSmithers will be hosting the fifteenth annual Addcon conference in Cologne.

Attendees have returned year on year to hear the cutting edge case studies on plastic additives, performance, processing and applications that have established this as Europe's leading conference for the plastics additives and compounding industry. Whether you're an additive supplier, compounder, manufacturer or end user of polymer materials, this conference provides arguably the best forum to learn about quickly changing technical and market developments in the global plastics industry.

But we know that times are tough. Additives suppliers, material producers, compounders and end users can no longer rely on year on year growth. Instead profitability and survival will depend on judicious use of polymer additives and their efficient incorporation into the end product whilst observing strict regulatory control. In these challenging economic times the main theme of the conference will be soundly based economic plastic additive technology.

This is your opportunity to keep informed about the additive and compounding industry in an uncertain market and stay one stay ahead of the competition. And you'll be in good company - representatives from DuPont, Rio Tinto Minerals, Arkema, Hybrid Plastics, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Heroflon will all be in attendance.
