Nuremberg, Germany, 27.6. - 30.6.2022
The German Rubber Conference and International Rubber Conference is the meeting place for the global rubber and elastomer industry. The two pillars of the conference -the scientific lecture program and the trade exhibition- attract around 3000 visitors to the Nuremberg Exhibition Center every three years. With a one-year delay due to the pandemic, this year around 250 exhibitors will present their new rubber-related products and services. Since DKT 2018, the Science Campus has been an integral part of the trade exhibition as an exchange and presentation platform for renowned research institutes and groups.
This year, scientists from the Fraunhofer IME in Münster, together with colleagues from the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS and the Fraunhofer Pilot Plant Center for Polymer Synthesis and Processing PAZ, will be presenting, among other things, the results of the "Biomimetic Synthetic Rubber BISYKA" cooperation project. Learn how the researchers have succeeded in producing lower-abrasion test tires without losing grip (wet grip) or low rolling resistance. Uur experts on site, Boje Müller and Christian Schulze Gronover, were available for lively exchange with visitors.
