Material Choices For The Chemical Industry

November 11, 1998

The latest developments affecting materials selection in the chemical industry will be discussed at a conference to be held on 24-25 November 1998 at The Institute of Materials. Delegates from chemical process, refining and petrochemical plants will have the opportunity to meet an international array of speakers and organisations developing the materials likely to affect the chemical industry well into the future.

The range of speakers at the conference will provide delegates with immediate access to a vast range of information on many different aspects of materials selection that will be of essential use to any company wishing to maintain its competitiveness in an ever-evolving market place. Engineers involved in undertaking materials selection for modern chemical processing systems will also have the opportunity to use this resource as a forum to discuss the presentations as well as the future trends and developments likely to affect their particular company.

For further information please contact Dr. Ken Strafford at The Institute of Materials on: Tel: +44 (0)171 451 7386 / 7396; Fax: +44 (0)171 839 2289 or Email: Ken_Strafford@materials.org.uk
