Summary These proceedings contain all the presentations from this conference which is now in its fourteenth consecutive year. As the only conference tailored to the specific needs of the polymeric foam industry, this event provided a forum for speakers to showcase new materials and processing technologies that will improve current application performance and benefit from improving or replacing existing material and process selections. As raw material costs still continue to pose a significant economic challenge to manufacturers in high volume markets, end-users are increasingly sourcing novel material.
