LATEP and China Plastics Piping Association (CPPA) sign a collaboration agreement

Last September 12-14 LATEP took part in the last Plastic Pipes XVIII conference in Berlin. In this conference the LATEP Manager, Dr. Carlos Domínguez, presented the work entitled: "Limits on the Slow Crack Growth resistance evaluation for the PE100 and PE100RC polyethylene resins"” being co-authors Dr. Rafael García and Dra. Nuria Robledo, lecture which aroused great interest among the attendees.

Plastic Pipes is the most important international conference on plastic piping with more than 450 attenders from 40 different countries. During the congress LATEP signed an important collaboration agreement with the China Plastic Pipe Association (CPPA) through its president, Mr. Wang Zhanjie. This agreement was signed based on the previously established between the CPPA and the Rey Juan Carlos University. The agreement is the result of the good relationship between LATEP and the CPPA, entity that together with the Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) invited last year to LATEP Director, Dr. Carlos Dominguez, to deliver a lecture at the 4th China International Plastic Pipe Conference.

For his part the president of the CPPA visited LATEP and Rey Juan Carlos University last November where he could meet the different laboratories and LATEP facilities and also the polymer synthesis laboratories of the Chemical and Environmental Engineering Group (GIQA) of the URJC, being pleasantly surprised by the possibilities both in the synthesis and characterization of polymers currently available at the Rey Juan Carlos University.
