Plastic Pipes Conference and Exhibition convenes in Las Vegas

The Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) has confirmed nearly 100 sessions, presentations and case studies at the Plastic Pipes XIX Conference and Exhibition (PPXIX), which will be held at the Red Rocks Resort in Las Vegas, AZ, on Sept. 24 to 26, 2018. The conference is organized in collaboration with PPCA members PE 100+ Association, Plastics Pipe Institute Inc. (PPI) and The European Plastic Pipes and Fittings Association (TEPPFA).

Topics under discussion will include creep failure behavior of polyamide pipes, the design and qualification of PA-PERT pipe for oil and gas transportation and a new process for thermoforming integrated sockets on rigid PP-HM underground drainage pipes.

“As always, this is a truly international event,” said Sarah Patterson, Technical Director of PPI and chair of the PPXIX organizing committee. “Presenters are from a multitude of countries including China, Austria, the Netherlands, Japan, Italy and the United States. The conference is the single-most important event for many attendees because it provides them with an intellectual and networking forum for sharing ideas and learning about the newest developments for all plastic pipes,” said Patterson.

Event sponsors includie Baerlocher, Rollepaal, MOL, Dow Chemical, LyondellBasell, Trelleborg, KraussMaffei Berstorff, battenfeld-cincinnati, Milacron and Uponor, a manufacturer of PEX piping that won this year’s Plastics Pipe Institute’s Project of the Year.

Alternating between the United States and Europe every even-numbered year, the Plastic Pipes Conference and Exhibition is the largest event of its kind. For more information, go to the Plastic Pipes Conference Association website.
