International Rubber & Advanced Materials In Healthcare Expo
Our expo is the premier place where our industry's customers and suppliers come together.There are currently over 200 companies/organizations set to exhibit. The expo features a wide variety of companies, such as equipment manufacturers, injection molders, extruders, custom mixers, processing equipment, hydraulic presses, vacuum molding, testing labs, distributors, suppliers, and many more in the industry. The International Rubber & Advanced Materials In Healthcare Expo retains tradition with the rubber and polymer industries while also attracting the bio and advanced materials industries. The International Rubber Expo, a highly respected event for the past 36 years, builds upon this success expanding to include advanced materials, such as biopolymers in the healthcare industry and more.
188th Technical Meeting
126 presentations are scheduled. Gain knowledge on these topics:
New Commercial Developments - Rubber Processing - Friction & Abrasion of Rubber - Rubber Additives for Technology (plasticizers/resins) - Biomaterials & Renewal Resources (recycling) - Advances in Material and Process of Car & Truck Tires - Gent Colloquium...Rubber Mechanics - Rubber for Damping in Engineering Applications - Specialty Elastomers - Thermoplastic Elastomers
We have developed a great educational symposium featuring these courses:
Cure Chemistry for Rubber - Rubber Failure Analysis, Chemical and Physical - Material Consideration for Medical Devices and Pharmaceutical Products - Intro to Rubber Technology for Non-Technologists - Chemistry and Technology of Functional Coatings for Medical Devices - Chemistry and Technology of Polymeric Materials Used in Medical Devices - Molding of Rubber - Silicone Basics
Advanced Materials In Healthcare Conference
We will be holding our 3rd Advanced Materials in Healthcare Conference on Monday, October 12, 2015. This is a one-day conference that is a component of our International Elastomer Conference. Judit E. Puskas, Ph. D., P.Eng., Fellow AIMBE, Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Professor of Polymer Science, Integrated Bioscience and Chemistry at The University of Akron led a distinguished group to develop this conference.
Advanced Elastomers for Healthcare - Testing of Advanced Materials for Healthcare - Elastomers/Polymers in the Pharmaceutical Industry - International Regulatory Affairs
Conference includes lunch, a reception at the end of the day and complimentary admission to our International Rubber & Advanced Materials In Healthcare Expo.
