Operation Clean Sweep, presented by Patty Long
Tuesday, December 17 at 1:00 p.m. CST
Marine litter is a growing concern, both globally and in the United States. For the plastics industry, it is often a black eye and while we cannot control all aspects of litter prevention, there is one area of marine debris where responsibility rests solely on us. We’re talking about raw plastic pellets – spilled in manufacturing plants or in transit – that are washed down storm drains and end up in our oceans and waterways. It is a bigger problem than most realize.
Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) is an international program designed to empower and aid employees of the plastics industry to keep resin pellets out of the marine environment. OCS is free and is composed of basic housekeeping tools, checklists and signage to help companies who handle resin pellets. It is a simple step to help strengthen your company’s sustainability initiatives, safety record, financial bottom line and reputation in the community.
Patty Long, Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI)’s vice president of industry affairs will elaborate on this program, explain how you can become a member and access the tools to help your company achieve its sustainability goals.
Join us Tuesday, December 17 at 1:00 p.m. CST / 2:00 p.m. EST.

Know More! Selling, presented by Sam Richter
instant replay is available to IAPD members only
Know more than you ever thought you could (or should) so you can win more business and provide more value. Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care. In the plastics industry, complex sales are all about personal relationships. When you know more about your prospects and clients, you’re better able to relate on a personal level, build more meaningful connections, tailor offerings, ensure relevancy and provide value through the distribution chain. Most important, you win more business! In this dynamic presentation, you will discover:
- Google search secrets that you never thought possible for finding qualified leads, uncovering opportunities and understanding decision makers.
- Tips and tricks for using “hidden” websites as sales and competitive “intelligence agents” including how to truly leverage LinkedIn as a prospecting and relationship-building tool.
- How to leverage information to make a big-time impression with any prospect, build deeper relationships with any client and completely differentiate from your competition.
This high-powered presentation has a huge “WOW” factor – you will be shocked at what you don’t know (but soon will). All attendees also receive complimentary access to the Know More! Reference Guide and Downloadable Toolbar, making it easy and fun to practice what is learned.
IAPD members may contact IAPD staff for an instant replay of Sam Richter’s Know More! Selling webinar presentation.

New Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) Technologies Designed for Water Related Applications
Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) is well known for continuous high temperature performance, long-term sunlight resistance, chemical resistance over a broad range of chemical families, low flame and smoke generation during fire testing and regulatory compliance for FDA, USP and NSF(R) applications. PVDF continues to be used in high purity deionized water, chemical waste water, potable water and WFI systems in biotech applications.
New technologies associated with PVDF allow it to broaden the target applications of this fluoropolymer by:
- Reducing the density of the product to the point that PVDF can now float
- Extrusion bonding technologies that allow PVDF to be a contact surface but supported by less expensive polymer substrates
- Flame and smoke ratings that allow an FDA compliant PVDF with no additives to be used as an ASTM E84 < 25/50 rated material
- Extrusion and lamination bonding technologies that allow PVDF to be a contact surface but tied to other materials that give great flexibility and impact performance
- PVDF copolymers that are listed to NSF 51 and 61
- New products for filtration including woven and non-woven fabrics
David Seiler, Sean Stabler and Rosemary Heinze, Arkema Inc., presented the webinar.
