There was lots of traffic at the HaartzMinth booth at the 2nd Annual SPE TPO Conference in Shanghai on March 28th.  This was the first major exhibition of HaartzMinth, since joint venture was announced at the same conference last year.   The HaartzMinth team were available to answer any questions about the interior surface materials soon to be manufactured locally.

At the conference, John Millea, Director of Research and Business Development from Haartz Corporation presented a paper on how Haartz is developing materials to overcome the use of consumer products in automotive interiors for the Chinese market.  “Each market has their own requirements so we are developing unique formulations to meet and many times exceed the requests of Chinese market” Millea said.
