      The highly praised International Conference on Textile Coating and
      Laminating (TCL) returns to Atlanta in 2005 for its landmark 15th year.
      Previous Atlanta TCL events have drawn significant numbers, and we expect
      TCL15 will be even more successful. TCL14 in Mulhouse, France, October
      19/20, 2004, was highly successful, bringing together industry participants
      from almost every country in Western Europe, some in Eastern Europe, plus
      others from the USA, Israel, Taiwan, India, Canada, and Africa.

      The TCL events have proven the critical need for sharing of information and
      keeping up to date with industry happenings -- materials, techniques and
      processes, and markets -- the core of the the TCL conferences. TCL15 is
      being planned to be the best yet; bringing together industry experts to give
      you the latest and most accurate information about the textile coating and
      laminating industry, one that cuts across every facet of our lives. We have
      endorsements and cooperation from leading textile and research institutions,
      trade groups, and companies involved in the industry. We will have the
      experts, the program, and an ideal location, in the heart of the US South,
      near the textile industry and many coaters and laminators, and convenient
      access for everyone.

      methods in Europe including the European priority-chemical risk assessments
      of flame retardants
      s A growing legislative burden requires improvements in our
      understanding of the fate of flame retardant chemicals and related compounds
      in the environment and their potential for release from materials and
      consumer products in particular.
      s Managing these issues requires a better understanding of the
      potential for flame retardant release across their life-cycle from
      production to use.
      s Recent work will be presented on identifying FR release mechanisms
      and the establishing of methods for the measurement of FR release using
      experimental protocols that are relevant to various human and environmental
      exposure scenarios.

      Jelle Frolich; BSEF (Bromine Science and Environmental Forum)
      s BSEF has launched a product stewardship (PS) program for two
      major brominated flame retardants Deca-BDE and HBCD both widely used in the
      textile industry. The objective of this voluntary industry PS program is to
      reduce and fully control emissions on a continuous basis to be in line with
      various directives.
      s A plant emission monitoring program was begun covering all known
      applications including textile formulating as well as coating. A GFA study
      demonstrated that emission control of both products in textile industry is
      s Codes of Good Practice have been defined in consultation
      with both industry and regulators. These codes describe the best way to
      handle, store, and process the products and indicate the best options
      forhandling off spec material and waste flows

      and prevented almost 6000 injuries since inception.
      s EFRA is interested to see what further consequences this fire
      regulation could have on the overall emissions via an LCA study.
      s Full scale sofa and room experiments were conducted to
      measure the emissions from the fires in order to provide input to the
      Fire-LCA model.
      s The results corroborate previous studies conducted using
      the Fire-LCA model

      5) Ecological, Halogen-Free and Antimony-Free Flame Retardant Concept For
      Textiles Coatings
      Inge Norman, Devan Chemicals, Ronse, Belgium

      year in fire or injurious gases caused by a fire.
      s Traditional flame retardant products are based on halogens
      (bromine, chlorine) and antimony (heavymetal).
      s Different European countries have chosen to reject use of
      those products instead of giving priority to safety against fire.
      s A look at new environmentally friendly, halogen and
      antimony free, flame retardant products for textile applications; products
      for different textile applications such as mattress ticking, upholstery,
      protective clothing, carpet, black-out curtains, and non-wovens.

      potential with regard to reduction of fogging, recyclability, evironmental
      impact, and cost comparisons for how it can impact profits.

      8) Advanced Application Systems for Improved Hot Melt Adhesives
      Riccardo Arnaboldi, HIP-MITSU, Spresiano, Italy
      s Technological advances enable the realization of high
      value-added end products using hotmelts and
      reactive hotmelts (PUR) with high levels of physical and mechanical
      properties, soft hand, breathability and waterproofing.
      s Innovative technology in the system include: improved ease
      of use; modularity, with possibility of tailoring production capacity;
      Several type applications are possible with just one application system
      (multi-line, breathable, full coating); easy adhesive changes; very precise

      s Unique product properties are now accomplished by the
      MicroEmissionT (ME) concept.
      s The new product range reduces the exposure to monomeric
      diisocyanates dramatically, under the premises of exhaust hood and working
      security. Due to their low content of Xn monomer, < 0.1%, the ME PUR Hotmelt
      adhesives do not have to be labeled as containing them.
      s The product properties and advantages will be explained
      and the potentiality in textile lamination will be given.

      15) Impregnation of Fibrous Structures By Powders Using an Alternative
      Electric Field
      Samuel Mathieu (Fibroline France ); Laurence Caramaro (IFTH), France

      s For many applications, textile material need to be impregnated with active
      s Impregnation by liquids (successive baths, then drying) is most widely
      used but is energy intensive, polluting, and large consumer of raw material.
      s The new process jointly developed by Fibroline and IFTH solves many of
      these disadvantages
      s The process consists of depositing dry powder to be impregnated on the
      surface of the textile, followed by a treatment in an alternative strong
      electric field, which leads to a homogeneous distribution of the powder
      within the textile matrix.
      s This innovative process is economical, with reductions in energy
      consumption, use of raw materials, improved recyclability and even increased
      productivity, as well as being more ecologically friendly.
