Point to Consider (PTC)

A major millstone in BFS IOA accomplishments is that our newest revision of PTC will be published as technical report by PDA. Our PTC have undergone peer review from PDA organisation and is BFS IOA outline on what need to be considered when producing products using BFS technology to ensure good products. Once published by PDA, expected to be in October, we will publish PTC on our website. We have also secured printed copies of the PDA technical report and BFS IOA members can request one printed copy per company. <<See cover of PDA Technical Report on BFS>>


BFS literature reference directory

A few years back we established a literature reference directory for scientific papers related to BFS technology. The aim was to provide an updated and relevant reference list by adding most recent references as they are published. In order to maintain below references updated, we encourage all our members to advise us of new published literature that may offer value to members. <<See current literature reference directory>>
