Focus on pressure-sensitive adhesives: raw materials – applications – process technology
According to the organisers, the Corona pandemic has not affected the planned schedule: the MKVS will take place as planned in Munich with maximum health and safety measures, supported by the Westin conference hotel team.
Hybrid platformAdapted to the pandemic, the 46th Munich Adhesives and Finishing Symposium 2021 will be organised – as in the previous year – as a hybrid platform and networking event. The hybrid event combines the live event on site with a virtual online component: A physical event in conference atmosphere and a simultaneous digital event, which nevertheless offers all participants the opportunity to interact with everyone else – "on site" or "online".
Thanks to live web streaming, the contributions will also be available as on-demand videos on the conference website after the symposium for all registered participants.
Fast and flexible"With all these considerations and forward planning, we are of course subject to the further development of the pandemic," explains organiser Stephan Hinterwaldner. "We all trust that the situation will have eased considerably by the end of October 2021 and that further steps will have been taken towards normality. We will react quickly and flexibly to any developments. We can assure all friends and supporters of the Munich Adhesives and Finishing Symposium that the highest level of health safety for all participants is of utmost importance to us."
He concludes, "We are convinced that the Munich Adhesives and Finishing Symposium 2021 will also be a new beginning for the industry in terms of personal communication, customer loyalty and networking."
Programme is onlineThis year, the Munich Adhesives and Finishing Symposium will focus on pressure-sensitive adhesives, covering the entire spectrum from raw materials, applications to process technology for and in all adhesive systems and application techniques involved (dispersions, solvent-based products, reactive systems, pressure-sensitive hot-melt adhesives), including extrudable films, as well as the corresponding technical, mechanical equipment.
The topics of the recently launched programme are divided into five sessions covering all areas of bonding, printing and finishing. They cover business strategies, materials, processes, design, legislation and regulation, sustainability, research, development and innovation. Paper, plastic and film applications will be predominantly covered, but also self-adhesive materials, packaging and labelling applications, tapes & labels, coating & laminating and also nonwoven applications.www.mkvs.de
