During the 3rd "International Silicone Conference held in Cleveland (Ohio) on 22nd and 23rd April 2003, Silikoneurope read and illustrated the following paper:
 
LIQUID SILICONE RUBBER IN CO-MOLDING AND OVER-MOLDING PROCESSES
 
which drew particular attention to the advantages of the co-moulding and over-moulding of products made out of various raw materials and compared these processes to traditional assembling methods. Over the past few years Silikoneurope has developed these techniques to exploit as best as we can the synergy between, on the one hand, liquid silicone rubber and, on the other, rubber, thermoplastic and metal parts.
