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.
