Polyurethanes Center Calls for Papers

The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council has issued a call for papers and posters to be presented at the Polyurethanes 2009 Technical Conference on Oct. 5-7 at the Gaylord National in Fort Washington, Md.

Technical paper abstracts are due March 2. To be included in the conference advance program, poster abstracts must be submitted by April 1. Submission instructions, paper guidelines and templates can be found at www.americanchemistry.com/polyurethane.

Papers and posters may address innovations and developments in any polyurethane area, including flexible slabstock, flexible molded, rigid foam, soy-based polyols, polyurethane waterborne dispersions, equipment/machinery, cast elastomers, thermoplastic polyurethanes, integral skin, Reaction Injection Molding (RIM), binders/fillers, coatings, adhesives, sealants and more.

CPI also encourages paper and poster submissions on breakthrough technology and innovations in polyurethane markets or chemistry, developing markets such as medical and fiberboard, and product areas such as rigid foam insulation or coatings. Presentation submissions also may focus on issues such as combustibility, transportation, recreation, security, as well as environmental stewardship issues, including emissions, regulatory developments, waste management, and related topics.
