The next plenary meeting of the TPE-Forum will take place on the 13 February 2019 in Dresden at the Leibniz-Institute for Polymer Research.
The preliminary agenda includes among others the following points:
- status in standardization of TPE
- TPE in CAMPUS
- TPE in drinking water applications
- TPE activities in education and training
- New book on the basics of TPE
.. and many more
Because of their sandwich position between rubber and plastic materials TPE occupy a special position in regulatory and standardisation issues where a deep understanding of the nature and chemistry of these materials is a must. Beginning of 2016 a new initiative was formed in Germany as a platform on which these and many other material-related aspects are discussed by experts from industry and academia. The TPE-Forum is non-profit open platform for players along the complete supply chain of TPE – raw material suppliers, compounders, suppliers of machinery and plants, universities and R&D institutions, and industry associations.
