Taking place in Cleveland, Ohio this June 25-27, 2019, Smithers Silicone and Thermoplastic Elastomers 2019 US Summit will bring together professionals from two industries, cultivating endless learning opportunities and networking that leads to long-lasting relationships. Attendees gain access to both co-located events, and can choose between two tracks of thought provoking content. Elastomers Summit offers the information and connection needed to push the silicone and thermoplastic elastomers industries into the future!
The focus at this year's Elastomers Summit is the material and processing updates needed to meet the requirements of advanced elastomer applications. Because the industries which utilize elastomers are embracing new possibilities, the elastomers industry has to focus on more efficient processing techniques and 'smart' materials, tailoring products to the needs of end-use applications.
