The Tire Tech seminars hosted by STL provide an overview of tire industry terminology, technology and the raw materials involved in the making of a tire, as well as the design, applications, compounding, construction and manufacturing processes.

A brief history of tire industry milestones, a current market summary, tire stamping and identification requirements, legislative activity and a tour of all aspects of tire testing are also included during the two-and-a-half day educational program.

STL compiles a technical team of automotive and tire experts to provide a basic yet comprehensive overview of the technology involved in the tire business. The seminars are designed to appeal to anyone directly or indirectly involved in the industry that needs a general understanding of tire design, construction and performance.

Registration is US$975 and includes admission to the seminar, all materials, three luncheons, an evening banquet and refreshments throughout the course.
