EUROPUR participates in PU Tech Asia 2017, Bangkok

27 April 2017

Bart ten Brink, President of EUROPUR and Michel Baumgartner, Secretary General will participate to the Polyurethane Conference 2017 taking place in Bangkok on 11-12 July at the occasion of the second edition of PU Tech Asia and Mattress Tech Asia.

At the conference, they will present CertiPUR, the SHE-standard for flexible PU foam created by EUROPUR to the Asian foam community. About 1/3 of European flexible PU foam production is CertiPUR certified today but CertiPUR has also been growing in Asia in recent years. A number of foam producers from China, Korea, Japan, The Philippines and Taiwan are now CertiPUR-certified and can offer their customers the guarantee that the foams they produce have minimal emissions of volatile organic compounds or are made without any of the substances banned under CertiPUR, notably heavy metals, carcinogenic or allergenic dyes or phthalate plasticizers.

The meeting will also be the occasion to meet the Thai PU Association and foam producers from Thailand to present CertiPUR to them and exchange on global issues affecting the PU industry.
