8th Conference on Silicone Insulation, May 31 – June 1, 2022

What kind of trends are affecting the field of electrical insulators? Why are silicones the perfect material for insulating electrical components? How does your specific application or company benefit from the unique properties of silicones? You’ll get the answers at the 8th Conference on Silicone Insulation (CSI), taking place from May 31 to June 1, 2022 in Burghausen, Germany.

Listen to Our CSI Experts

At WACKER, we strongly believe in and support a vivid exchange of expert knowledge. That’s why WACKER ACADEMY organizes its Conference on Silicone Insulation (CSI) every two years. CSI is a specialist forum that provides an ideal platform for discussing new technologies and trends in detail with fellow experts.

This year, CSI is scheduled to be held as a hybrid event with in-person and online attendance.

Topics We Would Like to Discuss

The following topics will be discussed during the conference. The presentations will cover the latest trends, technology insights and market opportunities in the field of electrical insulation (preliminary program).
