Dornbirn Man-made Fibers Congress Scheduled After ITMA
The Dornbirn congress will include special lectures under the topic “Impact of ITMA on Fiber Technology,” which will offer a survey by international fiber producers and research institutes of the interaction, required properties and impact on fiber developments.
The first day of the congress will include plenary lectures presented by the Brussells-based International Rayon and Synthetic Fibers Committee (CIRFS) and the Beijing-based China Chemical Fiber Association (CCFA), among others. The CIRFS lecture will discuss globalization challenges and development strategies for the European man-made fibers industry. The CCFA lecture will cover the same issues from the perspective of the Chinese industry.
A series of papers covering new fiber developments will include such topics as nanotube-reinforced polyethylene fibers, polyvinylidene fluoride yarns, polyethylene terephthalate developments, environmentally friendly regenerated cellulosics, bicomponent fibers and yarns, polyetherimide and electroconductive fibers, among others.
Other topics include transportation fibers and textiles, carpets, protective textiles and technology platforms for US and EU fiber-driven projects. For additional information, contact 43 5572 368 50; www.dornbirn-mfc.com.
