The TPE industry association TPE Forum will held its next plenary meeting as initially scheduled on the 23 June 2020. But in light of the current COVID-19 situation with severe travel and contact restrictions the meeting will be hosted online via Microsoft Teams.
Everybody who is involved in the production, the marketing or the processing of thermoplastic elastomers is invited to join the meeting on Tuesday, 23 June 2020, starting 10:00 am.
The TPE Forum was launched in 2016 as an independent communication platform for the promotion of thermoplastic elastomers. Experts from industry, science and universities, research institutions and associations are involved in the TPE Forum and are closely working together. As a neutral and non-commercial platform, it bundles information and stimulates new activities, for example in the field of standardisation. In addition to SKZ The Plastics Center, VDI (The Association of German Engineers) and wdk (The Association of German Rubber Manufacturers), the TPE Forum gathers numerous partners from the industry along the complete TPE supply chain from compounders and machinery suppliers to processors.
The TPE Forum is an informal and open circle and all interested parties are cordially invited to join the virtual meeting on 23 June 2020. The participation in the meeting is free of charge and without any obligation. To ensure an optimal forward planning, a registration would be desirable. The agenda will be finalised very soon, but please feel free to suggest any additional topic.
The meeting will be held in German. However the minutes of the meeting will be published on the website of the TPE Forum in English.
