iSmithers announces new venue for Latex & Synthetic Polymer Dispersions Conference

The conference, which takes place from 13-14 March 2012, has been moved to the Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel, a stunning 5-star hotel located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur's Golden Triangle. Speaking about the conference, programme consultant, David Hill of David Hill & Associates, International Latex Consultancy, said "The high attendance is a sign of the awareness within the industry of the current challenges facing this sector, including raw material prices, new industry standards and regulations, and the growing need for barrier protection in a whole range of situations. The iSmithers' latex conferences have become appreciated for the breadth and quality of their programmes, and this one promises to maintain the standard”. The two day conference organised by iSmithers, will be the seventh in their international series of latex events and follows previous events in central Europe. The conference will provide a forum to discuss market, technology and materials news, addressing perennial problems such as the need to find cost effective alternatives to natural latex, particularly in the face of rising oil prices.  It will cover a wide range of applications from the use of water-based dispersions and latices as substitutes for solvent-based systems such as adhesives, sealants and coatings to the use of latex for condoms and disposable medical gloves.Registrations for the conference can be made via the iSmithers website www.ismithers.net or by contacting Sharon Garrington at conferences@ismithers.net. iSmithers is offering a special discounted rate for wholly owned Asian companies.
