Enhanced Performance using Additives

Choosing the Best Additive

The ability to tailor product performance is a major competitive advantage, hence the use of additives to enhance desirable properties has received great attention in recent years. Many industry applications have benefited from the introduction of advanced additives and this symposium will highlight through industrial examples the wide range of chemistry involved.

There will be a programme of internationally acclaimed speakers, mostly from industry and from companies making pioneering advances in the science, understanding and development of new additives.

Topics to be covered include the mechanisms of actions and use of additives in:

  • Lubricants and fuels
  • Coatings, inks and paints
  • Adhesives and sealants
  • Plastics and polymers
  • Fibres and textiles
  • Cosmetics
  • Detergents


The full programme will be available closer to the event.
