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. The ability to create microcellular and nanocellular structures in thermoplastic foams promises to lead to many novel and enhanced properties that will impact many applications. There is also a great interest in developing environmentally safe methods to manufacture polymeric foams.
The FOAMS® 2022 conference will address the above key issues with a collection of 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 2022 conference will be held on September 22 and 23, 2022 in Indianapolis, USA. Tutorials, for those new to the foams area, will be held prior to the conference on Sept. 20 and 21, 2022. This conference is the premier forum to be aware of new developments in foaming technologies.
