Coated Wire and Cable
TURI brings together raw material suppliers, compounders, extruders and OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) to address environmental challenges facing the coated wire and cable industry. This supply chain faces European, Japanese and US regulatory pressure on a number of key wire and cable materials, including: Lead, Brominated Flame Retardants, PVC, Plasticizers.
TURI connects university research on the environmental impact of wire and cable constituents, laboratory evaluation of alternative materials, and meetings that draw firms from throughout the supply chain to address human and environmental impacts, regulatory requirements, new technology developments, and business and technical strategies.
TURI will host a workshop that focuses on updates to RoHS and REACH, newly emerging flame retardants, plasticizers and resins, and alternatives to Cd and Cr+6
