Dear Sir or Madam,
welcome to the Second German WPC-Congress in Cologne!
After the big success of the First German WPC-Congress in 2005 with more than 320 participants from 14 nations, the nova-Institut GmbH is proud to arrange the Second German WPC-Congress on 4th and 5th of December 2007 in Cologne, Maritim Hotel. We expect up to 400 participants, all of them experts. Today more than 335 participants are registrated and most of the exhibtion area is booked. The target topics are division of markets for WPC in Europe, standardisation, influence of weather conditions - especially of water, new products and new proceedings and surface and coating for WPC. This year we award a prize to the best new product 2007 and another prize to the innovative proceeding in 2007! As far as we know, it is the first award on WPC innovations. We have a special "partner & sponsor"-concept, and there is also a central place for exhibitors - if you want to join us, just make a call or send an e-mail!
WPC are thermoplastic compound materials that consist of different shares of wood, plastics and additives. They can be formed into parts with different thermoplastic processes such as extrusion, injection moulding, rotational moulding, press processes and thermoforming (more information about that is available in the WPC study of the nova- Institut, 2006).
