Innovations in Flame retardant textiles and plastics are mainly driven by the demand for highly performant products that have to comply with strict requirements in the field of fire safety, as well as with growing environmental and sustainability requirements. 

Given the importance of this theme, Centexbel organizes, in collaboration with Fedustria, a two-day conference on flame retardancy and flame retardant additives for textiles, plastics, foam rubber and composite materials

Call for papers & scientific posters

The conference aims to identify the main changes and trends in the flame retardants market and to develop adequate strategies for today and tomorrow. It will therefore provide a comprehensive update of all aspects of fire retardancy and FR additives for textiles and plastics.
