Functional additives are key enablers in polymer formulations; they drive the performance and processing characteristics of polymeric compositions that are clearly NOT in line with their proportion in the formulation. Since there are often multiple additives serving a desired function, molders / converters find it more convenient to use a “Masterbatch / Concentrate” rather than dealing with minor components. As a result, COMPOUNDERS are uniquely placed in the plastics industry value-chain to continue delivering innovations to the industry. The theme for this year’s 2-day conference on “Polymer Compounding for Sustained Innovations in Plastics Industry” is to bring the participants up to speed on the newest trends and technical advances in developing & offering differentiated products to the marketplace.
