RubberCon 2023 focuses on the use of elastomers and elastomeric materials for a wide range of products and applications  


The conference features seven themes spread over two days:

  • Elastomer product innovations
  • Material developments
  • Material processing
  • Sustainability
  • Characterisation & testing of materials and products
  • Modelling
  • Smart materials

Who should attend

RubberCon 2023 will be invaluable to:

  • Academic Researchers or Scientists who are working with materials chemistry, product development of elastomer materials
  • Innovation Scientists who are looking for new and innovative solutions for the use of elastomers

Benefits of attending

  • Find out what new technologies are emerging in the rubber sector, particularly with respect to sustainability and the drive to net zero carbon emissions
  • Discover how to extend the range of demanding environments in which elastomer products can operate
  • Understand how to better model and exploit the behaviour of elastomers in new, novel and emerging technologies



The International Rubber Conference Organisation (IRCO) have been providing delegates with first-class conferences since 1966. Since 2011 after the re-introduction of the RubberCon series, IRCO started delivering two global conferences ever year. RubberCon 2023 was awarded to us back in 2013 at the IRCO meeting in Paris.

In 2023, The International Rubber Conference (IRC) will be hosted by China in November.
