India RubTech Expo 2004 held.

India Rub-Tech Expo 2004, National Conference & Exposition on Rubber & Allied Materials, organized by the Indian Rubber Institute, in association with the Hari Shankar Singhania Elastomer and Tire Research Institute (HASETRI), will take place February 13-14 at the Hotel Kaynes in Mysore (Karnataka), India.

Plenary sessions on recent advances in natural rubber technology and the latest trends in rubber processing machinery are planned.

Approximately 50 technical papers will be presented in the two parallel plenary sessions on such subjects as polymeric materials and compounding; rubber processing and engineering; characterization and testing; tire development and simulation techniques; rubber components for automobiles; energy consumption and optimization; recycling and the environment; and quality and cost competitiveness.

Workshops on molded and extruded rubber goods and latex technology will also be part of the conference.

An exhibition of rubber and allied materials will run concurrently with the conference, featuring international suppliers of rubber goods, raw materials and machinery.
