Smithers Rapra’s Silicone Elastomers Americas 2012 heads to Ohio01 May 2012
PORTLAND, Maine – May 1, 2012 – Smithers Rapra is pleased to announce the dates for Silicone Elastomers Americas 2012, the leading U.S. event exclusively devoted to this niche area of the rubber industry. The 2nd annual conference will take place September 20-21, at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati in Cincinnati, OH. Silicone Elastomers Americas 2012 will bring together manufacturers, processors, end-users, designers and researchers for a technical discussion of silicone elastomer materials, global markets, applications and processing.
“At Silicone Elastomers Americas 2012, industrial and academic research staff and the customer users of silicone elastomers will explore in depth the emerging applications, manufacturing and processing improvements and testing advances that are moving this growing industry forward,” said Andrew Smaha, Conference Director for Smithers Rapra. “With several large rubber trade shows also taking place this fall, it is important that end users and academics have a dedicated forum for networking, collaboration and to exchange information about what deliverables are needed for silicone elastomers to expand their share of the market.”
This top U.S. event will cover the use of silicone elastomers in a wide range of sectors– including applications in the medical, automotive electronics and domestic appliances and food processing industries. The 2012 program will also touch on the whole range of silicone elastomer materials, including high temperature vulcanized (HTV), room temperature vulcanized (RTV), high consistency silicone rubber (HCR) and liquid silicone rubber (LSR).
