Silicone Elastomers World Summit 2017

28th - 29th November 2017



The Silicone Elastomers Summit brings together manufacturers, processors, end-users, designers and researchers for a summit-style technical discussion of silicone elastomer materials, global markets, processing advancements and novel applications.

Industrial and academic research staff and the customer users of silicone elastomers will explore the emerging applications, manufacturing techniques, processing improvements and testing advances that are moving this growing industry forward.

Past presenters have delivered truly outstanding content, and we have reworked and combined our global industry contacts into a singular, annual format to attract even deeper dialogue among OEMs, end users and academics.

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).


Taking place from 28-29 November 2018 in Munich, Germany, Silicone Elastomers World Summit will provide delegates with insightful advice and learning opportunities through a comprehensive conference programme.

Presentations include:

  • Advancements in adhesion of fluorinated liquid silicone rubber (F-LSR) to substrates, Rick Ziebell, Vice President of Technology of R.D.Abbott Company, Inc.
  • How pigments, fillers and additives can enhance the properties of silicones, Dr. Raman Rabindranath, Polychemist, GSDI Specialty Dispersions of PolyOne Corporation
  • Development of silicone rubber solutions for transport applications, Joseph Hallett, Senior Development Chemist of Fenner Precision
  • Silicones as Encapsulation for flexible LED-Modules, Martin Reiss, Materials Manager of OSRAM

**It has come to our attention that a number of accommodation service providers have contacted companies supporting Silicone Elastomers and TPE World Summit 2017 regarding hotel reservations. When delegates say they have already booked they are told that they need to finalise their booking by completing a form with credit card details. This generates a new booking and a 25% deposit is immediately charged to the card - this is non-refundable and any cancellation incurs a heavy penalty. These companies DO NOT represent Smithers and should NOT be given any credit card information.
