Positive feedback from conference

The first conference on nonwovens for high-performance applications highlights innovation and diversification

New concepts, commercial development and added-value were the emerging themes from the presentations given to delegates over the two day Conference on Nonwovens for High-performance Applications in Cannes, France on 5-6 March 2014.

Why a symposium on High-performance Applications of Nonwovens?

  • Commodity nonwovens are an established technology, with increasing competition from low-cost producers
  • The use of nonwovens for high-performance applications is a growing area and one with high returns
  • Companies are restricted from growing or even entering these markets because they lack the necessary skills to develop new markets and new manufacturing techniques

Who attended NHPA 2014

Participants included raw materials/chemical suppliers, machinery manufacturers, nonwovens manufacturers, finishers including coaters and laminators, OEMs, end-users and suppliers to end-user markets.
