Rubber Division, ACS, ACE Laboratories and Endurica will be joining major players in the global rubber industry at DKT IRC 2021 from 27th – 30th June 2022 in Nuremberg, Germany (postponed from 2021).

All three will be showcasing their services, products, training and future events in Hall 9 Pavilion 104, a 36 sqm exhibition stand organised by UK marketing consultancy Rubber Heart, who will also be exhibiting for the first time since the company was established at the start of 2020. Rubber Heart is the European Representative of Rubber Division, ACS, European marketing partners to ACE Laboratories and Endurica and is also the marketing and sales representative for FGV Rubber Industries in Malaysia who produces FGV ENR and FGV DPNR – information on these modified natural rubbers will be also available on the booth.

“It’s been a long time since the rubber industry has been able to meet up and we are delighted that we are able to join our partners and the 250 exhibitors and 3000 expected participants in Nuremberg for DKT IRC 2021” said David Cawthra, Director at Rubber Heart. “We are excited that events are back and value even more how they can make you immediately feel part of a bigger picture and drive collaboration, partnerships and innovation that can only be of benefit for the whole industry.”

DKT is organised by the Deutsche Kautschuk-Gesellschaft e. V. (DKG – German Rubber Society) and is Europe’s most important international event for the rubber industry that takes place every three years. DKG is a member of the International Rubber Conference Organisation (IRCO), a worldwide association of rubber societies who between them host the annual International Rubber Conference (IRC).

Rubber Division, ACS is also an IRCO member and will next host the IRC in 2027. Lakisha Miller-Barclay, Executive Director and CEO will be on hand at the pavillion to talk to visitors about membership, education and training programmes as well as opportunities available at the International Elastomer Conference on 10th – 13th October 2022 in Knoxville, TN.

ACE Laboratories provides independent rubber and silicone product and material testing, analysis and development services from its ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory in Ohio, USA. CEO Erick Sharp will be meeting up with ACE’s international customers that include many leading global players in the rubber industry, as well as introducing ACE’s rapidly growing portfolio of services.

Endurica is a world leader in solutions for managing the durability of elastomeric products. Its fatigue life simulation software, testing and material characterisation services are relied upon by manufacturers across the globe for right-on-the-first-try product development programmes. Engineering Analyst Mark Bauman will be talking in-depth to all those interested in exploring further how Endurica can get rubber products to market faster.

“There is certainly a real buzz in the industry about this event” said David Cawthra. “There should be something for everyone in Hall 9 Pavilion 104, so come and see us all to find out about Rubber Heart and our partners and what we are all doing for the rubber industry! We look forward to meeting you there!”
