According to the organiser, by co-locating the two events for 2014, delegates will be able to purchase one technical pass to the conference that most appeals to their business needs, whilst enjoying complete access to the other event as desired. This includes the opportunity to attend any of the 48 presentations from across both summits. The format of the 2014 agenda for both the Thermoplastic Elastomers and Silicone Elastomers World Summit will allow delegates to stay with one material technology throughout the two-day event, or follow an end-use industry such as automotive, personal goods, medical, building and construction, across all materials.
About the Silicone Elastomers World Summit 2014
Advisors Mesgo, University of Cincinnati, Momentive Performance Materials, Elmet, and Dow Corning have worked with Smithers Rapra to develop the 2014 agenda for the Silicone Elastomers World Summit. It will cover the use of silicone elastomers in a wide range of industries - including applications in medical, automotive and industries yet to be fully exploited, touching on the whole range of silicone elastomer materials, including high temperature vulcanised (HTV), room temperature vulcanised (RTV), high consistency silicone rubber (HCR), and liquid silicone rubber (LSR). It will feature presentations by Dow Corning, Momentive Performance Materials, University of Kassel, QPharma, Arburg, 2KM, Rico Elastomere, Cabot Corporation, -bionic surfaces-, Wittmann Battenfeld, Engel, starlim//sterner, Elmet, Smithers Rapra, Freudenberg Forschungsdienste, Alpha Technologies, Mesgo, Sigma Engineering, Dow Corning, B.
