TRI Environmental and Milacron Sponsor PPXIX

May 03, 2018

Organizers of the PLASTIC PIPES XIX Conference and Exhibition announce that TRI Environmental will sponsor this year's event at the Silver level and that Milacron is sponsoring one of the coffee breaks. The PPXIX conference will take place in Las Vegas, USA, at the Red Rock Resort on September 24 – 26, 2018.

Announcing the news, Sarah Patterson, chair of the PPXIX Organizing Committee (PPXIX OC) for the Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) comments: “The conference welcomes TRI Environmental and Milacron as PPXIX sponsors. Their addition further compliments the list of recognized companies committed to the success of the PPXIX conference.”

“TRI Environmental is a provider of pipe testing and research services for nonpressure to pressure pipe applications. They are based in Austin, Texas USA. Their endorsement of our international event is highly significant for the plastic pipe industry.”

“From testing in accordance with AASHTO, ASTM International and ISO test procedures, to evaluation of pipe gaskets and associated service life determinations, their contribution to plastic pipe technology is considerable. Their support for manufacturing, design and user communities in verifying the best, most efficient hydraulic performance for a given project is well known.”

Patterson is equally delighted to announce the Milacron sponsorship. “Milacron is globally recognized as manufacturing innovative extruders since 1972,” Patterson remarks. “Their line-up of extrusion systems are designed and built in-house. And in their demonstration and development laboratories, they have made a science out of optimizing processing via natural compression techniques.”

Milacron is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio USA and supplies systems that range from extruders to new and rebuilt extrusion barrels and screws, pipe heads, dies and downstream equipment.

“With the developing list of PPXIX sponsors and the recently released preliminary technical program, the momentum and excitement continue to build for this Las Vegas event,” Patterson adds.
