For years, Smithers has delivered smart, impactful conferences for the Silicone Elastomer and Thermoplastic Elastomer industries, thus earning the reputation as the key thought leadership forum and "home" to all players across the industry within their respected sectors.
By co-locating the TPE and Silicone Elastomers Summitsunder one roof, all participants are able to purchase one package to the Summit that most appeals, but enjoy unfiltered and complete access to the other as desired.
The Silicone Elastomers Summit covers the use of silicone elastomers in a wide range of industries– including applications in medical, automotive and industries yet to be fully exploited. The programme will also touch 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).
The European Elastomer Summits provides an unrivalled platform for representatives from the entire supply chain including elastomers specialists, with representatives from across automotive, medical and consumer goods sectors - spanning from material manufacturers, converters, compounders, suppliers of raw material, additives or new equipment, researchers, tier one and two suppliers, and end users.
Previous attendees to both conferences include Microsoft, Kuraray, Volkswagen, BASF, Elastron, Philips, Elkem, Tesla, WACKER, ExxonMobil, OSRAM Apple, BioAmber, Airbus Operations SL, Dow Europe, ExxonMonil Chemical, Fraunhofer ISC
