ZEON Elastomer Course in Moscow
Zeon Europe in collaboration with its distribution and agency partner REP International Russia recently organized Elastomer Course for (potential) customers on October 10th 2018, at Alfa Hotel International, Izmaylovskoyo, Moscow. 35 participants from 24 companies joined this event. They are the stake holders of the Russian rubber industry, mainly from oil and gas sector and automotive suppliers.
Dmitry Vasilyev from REP International Russia presented technical lectures about Zeon’s specialty elastomer products in Russian language. The presentation topics were tailor-made for Russian market, focusing on Zetpol HNBR and Zeoforte ZSC, which are relevant for oil and gas industry. Low temperature requirement is certainly crucial for various applications in Russia, where low Tg grades of Nipol NBR and Hydrin ECO are applicable. Recent Zeon developments in ACM, HyTemp H570 and DP5244, were presented to address the local automotive parts development departments. Furthermore, the participants showed interest to use Hydrin ECO as an alternative product for the other chlor-contained elastomer types.
Zeon Europe thanks REP International Russia team for the splendid work to organize the event. Appreciation is expressed to all participants - some had even to travel quite a distance to Moscow - for the fruitful and lively discussions from the audience and also in the individual face-to-face meeting with Zeon Europe technical service team. This event has given impulses to the participants to start concrete development projects with Zeon specialty elastomers.
