Composites, Polyurethane and Engineering Plastics: Approximatley14.500 Visitors from All Latin America Visited Feiplar Composites & Feipur 2012

December 03 2012

From November 6th to8th, it was held the seventh edition of FEIPLAR COMPOSITES & FEIPUR – International Congress and Exhibition on Composites, Polyurethane and Engineering Plastics in São Paulo, Brazil, at Expo Center Norte, Green Hall, with more than 280 exhibitors from 26 countries and more than 14.500 visitors. The exhibitors presented the most advanced solutions (raw materials, auxiliary products, process, equipment and services) to manufacturers of parts in composites, polyurethane and/or engineering plastics. 43% of these exhibitors came from several countries such as China (31), Italy (19), EUA (17), Germany (8), Latin America (18, mainly from Argentina), another European countries (24 mainly from UK and France), and Asia and Oceania (8). Beyond the technologies for manufacturers of finished parts, several companies exhibited their own finished products like MVC Plastics, J. Procopio, Fastplas Automotive, Carbox Racing, etc. Other companies presented their finished parts at the II Technical Parts Exhibition as Amecon, Blitz, O-Tek, Travi, Holos, M.Mold, Carbogel, Tenaz, UFRJ, DemitryArt, Aumar, Novapol, Ourofino and Ecoart. 53 companies presented products for the three versions of the Excellence Awards (composites, Polyurethane and Engineering Plastics), and several companies were presented their finished parts at suppliers booth, like Tecnofibras, Stratus and ASW Brasil. An important action was the Compocity, an area that simulated a composites city, showing several elements presented daily in our lives like one school made on composites, ATM, stores, furniture, boats, buses, trucks, and other items. Compocity was idealized by Almaco. Some companies also presented the benefits of their products/process through technical demos, showing polyurethane for thermal insulation (Amino), all the steps for the manufacturing parts by infusion (Reichold), the injecting of a truck bumper by RTM-Light process (Transtecnica), the application of filament winding (Reichold), RTM-Light and Infusion process (Almaco), RTM-Light process details (Reichold), and producing molded pillows in visco-elastic foam (M. Cassab). These presentations had an audience of over 580 people. Another highlight of the event were the 111 technical lectures about the using of composites, polyurethane and engineering plastics in many industrial markets like flexible foams (for furniture and industrial application), automotive, construction, harsh environment, wind energy, thermal insulation, aerospace, boats, standard for the petrochemical industry, sustainability (recycling and renewable source raw) and mining. Other lectures focused on the manufacturing of parts made on composites, polyurethane and engineering plastics and a better management for composites companies. At FEIPLAR COMPOSITES & FEIPUR 2012 it was also organized the first SAMPE Conference in Latin America. SAMPE has the target to show innovation on advanced materials for the Brazilian Industry. In general the lectures had an increase of attendees of about 33% comparing to 2012 event. The next show will be held in November 2014.
