AMI Conferences

Polymers in Building Insulation

AMI announces the launch of a new international conference on Polymers in Building Insulation. Taking place on ​18-19 April 2018 at the Maritim Hotel in Cologne, Germany, this technical conference will bring together expert speakers from across the supply chain to evaluate and discuss the trends, challenges and opportunities facing the construction industry in relation to thermal and acoustic insulation.


Building insulation is a large and increasingly important industry. Growing pressures for energy efficient and sustainable buildings are driving demands for more effective insulation. At the same time, health, safety and environmental concerns are having a major impact on the specification of materials in this sector. The development of new material and production technologies are key to meeting these fast-changing market and regulatory requirements.


Polymers in Building Insulation 2018 will cover the key developments and innovations in plastics, additives and production technology for this market. The high-level conference programme will also address advances in performance and compliance testing, fire safety, sustainability, and new applications. It will cover the full range of polymeric materials used in thermal and acoustic insulation for all types of commercial and domestic construction projects.


Polymers in Building Insulation 2018 will provide an international forum for companies involved in the construction insulation industry. In addition to the busy programme of presentations from leading stakeholders in the market, the conference will offer extensive networking opportunities in a focused exhibition area featuring displays from a range of suppliers.

This event will provide an ideal opportunity to meet with like-minded professionals to learn, network and discover new business opportunities.
