Engineering or specialty elastomers are the stalwart materials of the rubber industry. They are high volume and medium priced elastomers, often employed in demanding applications, such as the automotive, industrial, medical and electrical industries. The Engineering Elastomers 2003 conference had an exciting series of papers from authors in both Europe and the USA, addressing the opportunities for growth in engineering elastomers, as well as the challenges to producers and users operating in a rapidly changing competitive environment. Session 1 Market Review; Session 2 Advances in Compounding and Production; Session 3 Advances in Elastomers; Session 4 Additives and Vulcanising Agents; Session 5: Technologies and Materials Analysis; Session 6: Developments In Production And Processing Technologies And Equipment; Session 7 Inter-materials Competition; Session 8 Developments In End Use ApplicationsBecause of the reduced energy consumption, the elimination of the oil cooling and reduced maintenance cost, the ... cost (S 0.14/kWh) (60% from connected load) 9 kWh 1.26 18kWh 2, 52 Cooling water (oil cooling only) ($ 1.10/m3) 0.00 ca .
