The 8th edition will take place on Wednesday 5th & Thursday 6th February 2014 !
Over 3.000 participants from 56 countries attended the 7th edition of ADF held on the 6th and 7th February 2013. 60 suppliers of aerosol packagings, dispensing systems, packaging, products, technologies and service providers presented their innovations. Everyone stressed the relaxed setting, user-friendly scale of the exhibition, easy access and high standard of discussions among experts, which foster the emergence of new projects and innovation.
The session on recent advances in aerosol techniques took stock of gaskets and polymer components, manufacturing line controls, induction as an alternative to water baths, and solutions for can customisation. Clinching, which is an important aspect of aerosol sealing, was addressed by an expert panel and will be the subject of an in-depth session at the next edition.
The theme of varnishes highlighted new regulatory requirements with a view to finding an alternative to the use of BPAs. It was followed by a session on propellants.
The Paris Aerosol & Dispensing Awards ceremony once again underscored the dynamism of the aerosol and dispensing industry by singling out the « Tri-diffusion deodorant», MENNEN, the « Masa » range, NEW FOOD SPRAY, Flairosol packaging, AFA DISPENSING for POKON, the printing, varnishing and embossing techniques of TUBEX. In his speech, Xavier CAMIDEBACH, from Precision, highlighted forward-looking achievements like « Intravalve », « Le Soufflé Minute » or « Les Siphonés », placed on the market this year.
For the 2014 Awards, entries should be received before the 14th November 2013.
The second day focussed on prospects for the development of plastic aerosols, to boost their development on the market, and on foams and spray, taking stock of the most recent developments and research to limit their environmental impact. These two session were a resounding success.
The session on the impact of ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) on business practices, making companies more nimble, elicited keen interest among experts. A subject worth revisiting !
