 INDA’s second biennial Converting and Bonding (CAB) Conference May 6-8 in Greenville, SC satisfied attendees by delving into topics such as technology advancements, converting treatments and techniques, as well as global trends in the nonwovens and engineered fabrics industries.
The conference addressed market needs largely met by needle punched fabrics with a focus on the automotive and furnishings market segments. It gave attendees the latest information on government policies; recycling, repurposing, and reusing automotive waste; new nonwoven applications; and unique flame retardant processes and applications.
A few of the outstanding highlights of the conference included:
-Steven Yializis with Sigma Technologies presented the plasma self-assembly process for the functionalization of synthetic textiles
-David Roisum from Finishing Technologies, Inc. shared solutions for winding nonwovens
-Steven J. Grossman of Grossman, Tucker, Perreault & Pfleger, PLLC reviewed the new U.S. patent law
-Jaime C. Grunlan from Texas A&M University showed attendees how anti-flammable nanocoatings can be used for textiles by using renewable and/or environmentally-benign materials
John Gearhart, Nonwoven Textile Solutions, LLC, and INDA’s CAB 2014 Conference Chairman, said, “This very successful conference brought together a diverse audience for the most recent information in converting, bonding and needle punch technologies for the automotive and furnishings markets.
