Description
Polyolefin Additives 2014 is focused on the performance of key polyolefin materials, particularly polyethylene and polypropylene, looking at new ways of compounding and new resins, and their application in a wide range of industries from packaging to automotive. The property requirements vary depending on the use, for example an agricultural film wants a high level of anti-UV additives, while a food contact plastic will need to be safe with low levels of migrating ingredients, and a construction application will require flame retardants, heat- and UV-stabilisation. At the same time the material must be cost-effective and easy to process. The resin selection can improve performance too and there are advances in this area.

Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
