AKRON—Registration and housing is now available for the ACS Rubber Division's 189th technical meeting and educational symposium.
The event will be held April 18-21 at the Hilton Palacio del Rio in San Antonio, Texas.
George Bohm will be awarded the 2016 Charles Goodyear Medal during the event, the highest honor given by the technical association. Among Bohm's contributions to the industry are his work with coextrusion of tire components and also on radiation crosslinking of rubber. As part of the latter, he established a radiation research laboratory to explore the effects of ionizing radiation in natural and synthetic rubbers, run as a joint venture between Firestone and Radiation Dynamics Inc.
Bohm will receive his award at the Science and Technology Awards Banquet.
