25 - 26 June 2019

Innovation makes it possible to meet the ever more stringent product requirements in terms of function, quality and efficiency. For rubber and silicone applications, it is essential to constantly expand in particular the know-how on material production, processing processes and viscoelastic properties. In addition, it is important to combine the gathered information so as to find an effective application.

The "Rubber meets Science" symposium offers a balanced programme of current trends and innovations and also looks at upcoming challenges in silicone and rubber technology. Renowned speakers along the entire value chain will report on economically interesting processes for the production of top-quality silicone and elastomer parts. Furthermore, the experts will talk about development projects on the subject of high-performance components made of elastomers and silicones.

The event will be rounded off by a look at ongoing research projects and scientific results. Direct dialogue between industry and research provides for a valuable exchange of experience and offers new points of contact for present and future projects, ideas and research work.

You can take advantage of the tour of the Institute and the Conference dinner to extend your existing network with additional important contacts.
