Technische Konferenzen

Ergänzend zu den weiteren Aus- und Weiterbildungsangeboten werden auf den technischen Konferenzen in den Gebieten "Surfaces, Interfaces and Friction of Elastomers" and "Modern Elastomer and Polymer Analyses" Themen rundum den aktuellen Stand der Technik diskutiert.

Die Konferenzen finden in englischer Sprache statt.

Technical Conferences

The Technical Conferences on select specific topics complement the content covered in the more systematically structured modular advanced training program. With talks and reports from internationally recognized R&D specialists, the Conferences focus on what is currently state-of-the-art expertise. In this way, the Technical Conferences ideally bridge the gap between academic knowledge and day-to-day practice in industry. The Conferences are geared primarily to experienced professionals with a solid training background. Some of the Technical Conferences are held in English to additionally accommodate participants from companies and organizations with international operations. These particularly interesting events vouch for a high-caliber, very broadly based exchange among experts in their field.

Surfaces, Interfaces and Friction of Elastomers

Content of the conference

An integral part of the seminar is the key role played by modern functionalization technology in shaping the mechanical performance characteristics and tribological properties of composite systems.

Surface characterization with REM/ED and IR/ATR; Contact angle measurements and surface free energy; Plasma modification of surfaces; Surface modification for adhesive processes; Tribology shaft seals; Coatings as means of minimizing friction and wear; Sliding lacquer used to minimize friction on glass and sheet metal; AFM analyses and nanotribology; Surface-modified nanofillers; Modification of blacks; Nanofillers in elastomers; Silica-silane coupling; Interphase dynamics and mechanical characteristics of filler-reinforced elastomers.
