Manufacturing and processing of rubber and other polymers requires great expertise and experience. In the companies involved there is a demand for fundamental knowledge as well as state of the art technology. Can a better knowledge of available rubbers and processes resolve production problems? How must one translate production specifications to material specifications? Is one mixer really better than the other? Which possibilities are there for re-work and recycling?
These and other questions will be addressed during the Rubber Technology Seminar. The course will be held in English.
It runs under auspices of the Foundation for Polymer Technology in the Netherlands. The course includes a tour around the tyre assembling company of Apollo Vredestein BV. This will all be under the supervision of Prof. Dr. A. Blume from the department Elastomer Technology and Engineering (ETE) at the University of Twente.
