The Phosphorus, Inorganic and Nitrogen Flame Retardants Association-North America (PINFA-NA) has fixed a date for its sixth annual workshop, Meeting Fire Safety Requirements in Automotive Design.
The workshop, taking place from 27-28 September, 2017, in Dearborn, MI, USA, will focus on trends in automotive design that could affect the choice of flame retardants and materials in transportation solutions.

Attendees will hear from automobile OEMs and their tier suppliers, and regulatory experts regarding needs in the transportation industry. The presentations will include fire retardants technologies, test methods, environmental and regulatory updates, advanced manufacturing and materials technologies. There will also be panel discussions on these topics. The workshop is co-organized by the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) and the Society for Plastics Engineers (SPE).
