TARRC @ Tire Tech Expo 2011

TTE 2011 ProgrammeTARRC will be exhibiting at Tire Tech Expo (TTE) for the fourth consecutive year, held in Cologne, Germany from 15th - 17th February 2011.

Tire Technology Expo has grown in strength and stature every year since it was started in Europe 11 years ago. Visitors and exhibitors to the latest conference and exhibition staged in February 2010 universally praised it as the ‘world's leading tire design and tire manufacturing event', noting in particular the outstanding quality of the conference papers and speakers, and the comprehensive extent of machinery manufacturers and suppliers who exhibited at the event.

TARRC is exhibiting as TARRC/Rubber Consultants and can be found at stand No. 8582

TTE offers the visitor a technology showcase covering materials and equipment through the complete spectrum of the tyre design and manufacturing process. TTE also offers visitors, exhibitors, and conference delegates an unrivalled networking opportunity within the tyre design and manufacturing sector.

As part of the conference, which runs alongside the exhibition, TARRC scientists have been invited to give presentations again this year. The morning session held on Wednesday 16th February entitled 'Can natural rubber meet the supply and technical demands of the future?' Session 7, has been organised by TARRC's Director of Research, Dr Stuart Cook who also chairing the session. The presentations by TARRC scientists are:

14.00 - 14.25 Improving the dispersion in silica-filled ENR compounds: now you see it, now you don’t!
Dr Pamela Martin, TARRC

15.35 - 16.00 Improved abrasion resistance in ENR-25 tire tread compounds
Paul Brown, TARRC

Also on Wednesday 16th February, 'Developments in chemical and physical testing equipment for the analysis of rubber compounds' Session 12:

14.20 - 14.45 AFM imaging of silica-filled vulcanisates

Dr Anna Kepas-Suwara, TARRC

15.30 - 15.55 AFM relaxation studies of rubber vulcanisates

Dr Anna Kepas-Suwara, TARRC

Again, as last year, TARRC has also co-organised a two day short course with Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL) entitled: 'Rubber Materials'.

This course is designed specifically to give a detailed overview of all the core concepts involved in the design of rubber products. If you wish to find out more information please visit the official website.
