Sept 26, 2023 from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Technical Presentations:

“Sustainability in Rubber and Plastics”
Nicki Hershberger, Senior Technical Advisor, Akron Rubber Development Laboratories

Overview of different sustainable / recycled products that can be used in elastomers and how to compound for them.

“Testing and Analysis Methods for Rubber Durability”
Tom Ebbott, Vice President, Endurica LLC

Having an impact with durability analysis and predictions starts with good materials data. Reliable and accurate predictive methods require advanced testing equipment, software, and analysis methods. Topics of discussion will include testing methods for crack growth and intrinsic strength, strain-induced crystallization in filled natural rubber compounds, testing and analysis for ozone aging conditions, and workflow for durability analysis.

“It’s Not How Much You Make. It’s How Much You Keep.”
Fred Carter, Strategic Partner, Schooley Mitchell

In this presentation, Fred will be sharing practical insights from Schooley Mitchell’s fight against irrational and abusive pricing practices. This will include helping you recognize questionable vendor pricing practices and showing you how to combat prices that aren’t always as fixed as we assume. Afterall, who doesn’t love paying vague addons like hazmat charges? They sound official and mandated. Not always! Fred’s information will be useful for business owners, finance officers, purchasing agents, or even homeowners who are tired of having too much taken from what they’ve earned. For businesses these methods get millions of dollars returned to their bottom lines.
