New Professional Development Program Course Offers an Introduction to Composites

The following blog is a segment of a five-part series regarding the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry’s (CPI) 62nd Annual Polyurethanes Technical Conference.

This year’s Polyurethanes Technical Conference is now only a few days away. CPI remains committed to providing opportunities for attendees of the Conference and the Professional Development Program (PDP) to foster technical development and increase their industry knowledge.

Professional Development Program Highlights: PU 106 (NEW!)

Today’s highlight is a NEW course available this year, giving attendees the chance to learn more about polyurethane composites.

PU 106: Introduction to Composites (Sunday, Oct. 6, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.) offers a breakdown of composites, the history, classification, applications, advantages and disadvantages, and strategies of its usage. This is followed by delving into overviews of resin and fiber technology, manufacturing processes and equipment, and recycling and circular economy.  

Insight from an Expert:

We asked Lee Salamone, Senior Director of CPI, what industry professionals should know about the PDP: “The polyurethane industry is continuously introducing new innovations. New courses such as these are a testament to how CPI continues to innovate ourselves, adapt to today’s needs, and help ensure our industry is trained on the most up-to-date topics and practices about polyurethanes.”
