HANNOVER, Germany - The European Coatings Conference, “Fire Retardant Coatings IV,” will be held June 3-4, 2010, in Berlin, Germany. Hosted by the Vincentz Network, the conference will focus on current developments in raw materials as well as mechanisms and standards. It will provide networking opportunities and up-to-date information. A number of high-level technical papers will be given by invited international experts. Topics include: halogen-free retardants for textiles; intumescent coatings for protection of steel structures; clay-polymer thin films for imparting flame retardant behavior to foam and textiles; and toxic and environmental hazards of fire retardant coatings.
The conference will host a pre-conference tutorial, “Flame Retardant Fundamentals.” The tutorial will give conference delegates a base knowledge on the chemistries of flame retardant mechanisms, fire tests, fire safety regulations as well as intumescent coatings.
