This event is available to SATRA members only
SATRA experts John Hubbard and Charlotte Fowle will join Steve Rose at the SATRA offices and laboratory in Dongguan to deliver a series of technical seminars across four days. The seminars are aimed primarily at footwear technologists and will appeal to those new to the industry and also more experienced personnel wishing to gain an update on the latest thinking in a particular area.
Many different types of textile constructions, fibres and coatings are used on footwear uppers and linings as alternatives to leather. The various types of these ‘synthetic’ upper materials are described and advice given on how best to test them to ensure they perform to customers' expectations.
This is a half-day seminar, taking place in the morning.
