On behalf of the Technical Textiles and Nonwoven Association it is my pleasure to announce the inaugural Fire Resistant Textiles & Fibre Conference that will be held in Melbourne, Australia on Tuesday 29 November 2016.
The 2016 Fire Resistant Textiles & Fibre Conference will be an open forum presenting the latest science, technology, design and manufacture of fire resistant fibres, textiles, coatings and finishes for the protection of people, things and the environment. Testing, management and compliance of Fire Resistant characteristics of fibres and textile to reduce risk to the greatest extent possible will also be explored.
We hope that the conference will provide end-users of fire resistant products, global scientists and researchers in all textile fields with the platform to share new knowledge, set directions and goals for the progress of textile science and engineering in this important field for the next decade.
On behalf of the organising committee, I urge you to consider presenting your work at this conference to be held on 29th November 2016 in Melbourne, Australia. You can subscribe to conference updates and news by completing the form on the News page.
