WELLESLEY, MA–(Marketwired – February 02, 2016) – Now in its 27th year, BCC Research‘s annual Conference on Recent Advances in Flame Retardancy of Polymeric Materials is the premier event of its kind in the United States. It will be held at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel in Stamford, Connecticut, from May 23-25, 2016.

Geared specifically toward scientists and other technical specialists, this conference provides insight into recent developments in the flame retardancy industry. Presented by experts from both government/academia and the commercial/industrial sectors, this event brings together industry leaders from around the world and offers excellent networking opportunities within an intimate framework.

“The Flame Conference is a focused forum for flame retardant (FR) industry professionals. Scientists and technologists gather to share knowledge and learn about the latest technological innovation in FR materials,” said Charles Wilkie, Conference Chairman. “Our speakers are prominent experts presenting their latest work as well as speaking with attendees one on one. This event is highly regarded and draws scientists from around the world who are working to move the industry forward.”

The conference will be preceded by an interactive “short course” designed for technical specialists and marketers new to the industry on May 22, 2016. The one-day course consists of three interactive lectures by prominent industrial scientists who will provide a unique opportunity for newcomers to become acquainted with the FR field in all of its aspects.

Government regulations and industry standards obligate manufacturers to add flame retardant chemicals to a wide range of products that are used every day. Industry participants actively seek to develop new compounds and increase the efficacy of fire retardants, which are responsible for saving countless lives and reducing the incidence of fire. Flame retardant chemicals are expected to gain market share over the coming years, according to BCC Research’s related market research report, Flame Retardant Chemicals: Technologies and Global Markets.
