Materials at WSA to be the place to find truly new innovators
Jan '08
Industry leaders, such as 3M, Dae Woo and Emtex, will be out in force at the inaugural Materials at WSA Expo & Conference, Las Vegas, (February 19-21).

They will sit alongside new innovators from across the globe, which have never before been seen in Europe or America.

The show will be the place to find truly new innovators. For instance SH Composites from Taiwan will launch a 100% recyclable Thermalplastic toecap.

The same shape as steel toecap, it is non-magnetic, anti-corrosive, non-conductive and weighs 50% less than an original steel toecap.

It also meets all the legally required safety standards. Another exciting new environmental player is Creative Leathers who specialise in bovine leathers in a wide range of up-to-the-minute finishes.

They will showcase a chrome-free and biodegradable velour suede leather – Ecowhite.

Global suppliers are also using the event to make major announcements. For instance 3M will be showcasing its newest lines from both its Scotchgard and Thinsulate brands.

Emtex will be highlight how Emtex engineered fabrics are now available for manufacturing and delivery in Asia.

While Texon International, the leader in structural component materials for footwear is launching a new high performance, recyclable stiffener technology that is up to 25 percent lighter and 40 percent thinner than conventional stiffeners.

Dae Woo will also be at the Materials Expo, championing its high-tech and high-quality new materials developments including its latest film coating, spread coating, surface heat treatment and laser processing techniques.
