This three day in-depth automotive seminar will provide information on material selection, design procedures, processing techniques, and the assembly methods required when designing with plastics in the automotive field.
This Livestream will bring viewers up to date on what the coronavirus outbreak means to the automotive market and the companies that supply it. There also will be discussion on the ongoing evolution in the market toward electric and autonomous vehicles.
In this webinar you will learn how to improve mechanical properties and increase recycled content of rubber parts. Today recycled rubber is used in in many applications; however use of recycled rubber comes with challenges such as processing of high recycled rubber compounds, sharp-drop in mechanical properties, and manufacturing defects in final end products.
Find out how to combine better processing and superior performance by incorporating an additive technology that has proven itself in the last 20 years. Together we will explore 3 main strategies to bridge the performance gap when using recycled rubber: type of rubber, particle and surface size, and surface modification with and without using VESTENAMER® transpolyoctenamer (TOR).
Join us in this informative webinar where Alexander Paasche, Business Development and Ankur Kant, Business Development Manager, Evonik Industries will address an effective way to evaluate your process, increase recycle content, reduce costs, and take part in a more sustainable economy.

Learn updates on silicone market conditions in this ever-growing part of the rubber industry from two veteran journalists. Join Bruce Meyer, editor, and Kyle Brown, reporter, for a Live Stream event August 15, where they will discuss such issues of interest to those involved in the silicone rubber as material availability, price volatility and regulatory matters.
VESTENAMER® transoctenamer (TOR) has been used as an additive in the rubber industry for many years. By virtue of its properties, the versatile transoctenamer (TOR) can solve a variety of problems in the compounding and processing of rubber. It can also improve the dynamic properties of the vulcanized material and as well be used to recycle waste rubber.
In this webinar, you will learn about the benefits of transoctenamer (TOR) in all areas of rubber manufacturing – from mixing to shaping to better finished properties of your final rubber part. In addition, recipes with transoctenamer (TOR) covering rubber goods such as hoses, rubber rollers, and rubber mats made out of recycled rubber will be discussed to highlight product benefits.
