DR. HANS-JOACHIM GRAF: Hans-Joachim


Joachim Graf has over thirty years experience in the rubber industry. He was first with manufacturing
companies for pharmaceutical and technical rubber parts. He then jo
joined
ined DESMA a manufacturer of Rubber Injection molding and polyurethane
shoe machines responsible for process development, followed by RheinChemie as senior manager of material developments for rub
rubber
ber industry.
After Cooperstandard Automotive (CAN), division
