The Manchester Polymer Group, in conjunction with the Rubber in Engineering Group, are pleased to announce the following details of the programme for their next Rubber Seminar on 15th May 2017, entitled ‘Rubber and Elastomers – Sustainably meeting tomorrow’s challenges’.
Following the Keynote Paper Sustainable fillers for future elastomers from ARTIS, recycling papers will cover Developments in recycling and re-use of waste rubber from Smithers RAPRA with Polymer Recyclers asking the question Tyres back to Tyres – opportunity or pipe dream?
In the Materials and Additives sessions Versalis, Dupont Performance Elastomers and BASF will focus on how EPDM, Ethylene Acrylic elastomers and stabilisers can face up to these sustainable challenges. The role of carbon nanotubes in Using less, Doing more and Performing better will be highlighted by OCSiAl
The seminar will end with a Processing and Testing session when Elastocon will cover Stress Relaxation and Lifetime Estimation of Rubber Materials and RAPRA, a seminar supporter, will discuss Exploiting Innovation to meet the challenges of Sustainable Manufacturing. Sherkin Technologies will also review equipment to support R&D and manufacture of materials and products.
