On March 6, 7 and 8, the North American city of Novi, in the US state of Michigan, will host the country’s first fair dedicated to the technical foam industry. This fair, which will also have numerous conferences, aims to bring together foam manufacturers and buyers of their products and services, encompassing the entire foam industry in general, dealing with raw materials, chemicals, processes, machinery and all the associated services. In addition, the fair will present molded, rigid and flexible foam solutions using materials ranging from urethanes to elastomeric materials such as rubber and PVC, as well as a range of equipment and machinery manufacturers, and foam service providers.

This year the second edition of this event will be held, which in its debut last year achieved great figures: over 300 exhibitors and over 5,000 attendees. This year it is expected to exceed those figures, in addition to offering conferences with more than 60 different speakers that will cover all foam areas and its different final markets: automotive, aerospace, packaging, sports, medical and construction, among others.

The North American market is of great importance to Concentrol, where the headquarters of Concentrol USA Corp (Dallas, Texas) is located, and for this reason we will be present at the fair with a stand, number # 114 to be precise. This fair has already shown great interest in Concentrol’s products and solutions, publishing on its website the study conducted in our laboratories about innovation in release agents for polyurethane foams and more specifically electrostatic release agents, their applications and their benefits.
