Flame Retardants 2008 CD

In February some 200 delegates attended Flame Retardants 2008 – the thirteenth in this series of conferences dedicated to practical applications of flame retardants and polymers. The conference provides a forum for manufacturers, users, legislators, fire test experts and fire scientists to exchange ideas about what is needed and what is possible and practicable in the control of fire in polymeric materials.
