Recently, Siltec received a third grade visit from apprentices who are being trained as process mechanics for plastics and rubber technology at the Industrial School in Ehingen. The aim of the visit was to give the trainees a practical insight into the world of silicone processing.

After a short welcome by our managing director, Dr. Zylka, the visitors were given an overview of silicone as a material, its special properties and a wide range of applications. The trainees were surprised by the widespread use of silicones in everyday life as well as the great variety of silicone products and production technologies.

In the subsequent guided tour our visitors were able to get a practical impression of our company, the production facilities and the production methods. During lunch together in our cafeteria, there was a lively exchange between the young trainees and our specialists.
