SIDISTAR™ team at DKT IRC 2022

Germany, June 10th 2022: Elkem Silicon Products will be attending the German and International Rubber Conference 2022 on 27 - 30 June 2022 in Nuremberg, Germany.

DKT IRC 2022 is a place where renowned companies from across the world will showcase their products and innovations. The event is the perfect opportunity to get up-to-date knowledge from industry and science through presentations, covering topics from raw materials through processing and testing to future uses in rubber technology. A Tyre Day, a Sustainability Day, and a Future Mobility Day will be providing presentations and conversations on these three current subjects. On Tuesday June 28th at 12:00 on Tyre Day, our team will be presenting their paper “Impact of silica surface on the physical performance of tire tread compounds” and the authors will be available for discussions afterwards at booth 626, Hall 9. Furthermore, the two-day TPE Forum will be focusing on thermoplastic elastomers.


Elkem Silicon Products created SIDISTAR™, a unique line of multifunctional additives for polymers. Advanced amorphous (non-crystalline) spherical silicon dioxide is used in the products. The form and size of SIDISTAR™ particles will improve the qualities of your product; they are inert and are not classified as hazardous in REACH. SIDISTAR™ can help you enhance your product in ways that other additives can't, such as increased rheology, dispersion, flame retardancy, dynamic fatigue, and abrasion.


For Elkem, reducing harmful environmental impact throughout the value chain is crucial. Elkem's global climate strategy outlines our plans to reduce our carbon footprint by employing more renewable carbon sources and developing innovative manufacturing processes. Ecovadis has ranked Elkem among the top 1% of worldwide corporations in terms of sustainability this year. Our path to sustainability is never-ending, and Elkem is committed to continuing to work toward it, like growing the worldwide biocarbon share to 50% by 2030.

This year, Elkem is co-exhibiting at the booth of Biesterfeld Rubber group. Our team is happy to welcome you at the DKT IRC 2022 in Hall 9, Booth 626. For more information about this event, please visit DKT IRC 2022 - FECC.
