“Improving Self-Lubricating LSR in Sealing Applications with a Novel Third-Stream Additive” Webinar by RDAbbott (October 19)

Join us Tuesday, October 19, 2021, from 10:00 – 11:00 AM (ET) for “Improving Self-Lubricating LSR in Sealing Applications with a Novel Third-Stream Additive,” a free webinar about a new Dow liquid silicone rubber (LSR) products. This live event is part of RDAbbott’s 2021 Webinar Series, which provides technical insights and processing recommendations from our supplier partners.

Why You Should Attend

Self-lubricating LSR is the material of choice for electrical sealing applications in automotive applications. With constant changes in the industry, the performance requirements of this material becomes increasingly challenging and related material formulations constantly more complex.

What You Will Learn

The presenter, Dr. Michael Backer, Senior Research Scientist with Dow, will cover topics that include:

  • Give an overview on factors impacting basic sealing properties, such as compression set.
  • Propose a new additive option to noticeably shift the thermal stability of an entire material family.
  • Provide insights on how this new additive can stabilize a set of mechanical properties at elevated temperatures.
