BEIJING, July 3, 2017

The International Polymer Colloids Group Conference (IPCG2017) was held in Arantzazu, Spain, on 25th-30th June, 2017. More than 140 well-known scholars from over 40 countries were invited, as well as experts from industrial companies, such as from BASF and Oriental Yuhong. One of the conference co-chairs of IPCG2017 is Dr. Willie Lau, a chief scientist of Oriental Yuhong.

The International Polymer Colloid Group (IPCG) was established in 1972 to provide a platform for academic and industrial researchers engaged in polymer colloids to communicate and share research results and innovative ideas. Since its founding, the organizers held IPCG in North America or Europe every other year, with more than 40 years of history. The global leading chemical experts hold the post of conference co-chairman in turn. The theme of this conference is the synthesis and performance studies of complex colloids, and the application of advanced colloid monitoring techniques.

Polymer colloid is widely used in the coatings, adhesives, bio-medicine, food and other fields. As the largest waterproof system providers in Asia, Oriental Yuhong has several long-term and in-depth scientific achievements. Prof. Serji Amirkhanian, from South Carolina Asphalt Laboratory of Oriental Yuhong, made a speech of Polymer Modified Asphalt, a Non Aqueous Colloid, sharing the research results and problems with the experts in the field all around the world.

The doctoral student Hao Huang from Lehigh University won a prize for the Best Academic Speech. His presentation is a cooperated research program of Oriental Yuhong and Lehigh University. And another three scholars got the Poster Prize sponsored by Oriental Yuhong.
