Co-Sponsored by the SPE Thermoplastic Materials & Foams Division.


New materials, processes, equipment and foaming agents are being continually developed for foam applications. Interest in finding new polymers and foaming agents for foam applications is one of the top priorities for foam manufacturing industries. There is also a great interest in developing environmentally safe methods to manufacture polymeric foams.

The FOAMS® 2019 conference will address the above key issues with a collection of groundbreaking presentations by leading foam researchers in industry and academia. It will feature world-renowned speakers presenting technical papers on innovations in foam processing, novel blowing agents, micro and nanocellular foams, sustainability in foams, biodegradable foams, foamed nanocomposites, etc. with special emphasis on industrial applications. The FOAMS 2019 conference will be held on October 2nd and 3rd, 2019 in Valladolid (Spain). This conference is the premier forum to be aware of new developments in foaming technologies.
