“Introduction to ARLANXEO Butyls, BRs, and SBRs” Webinar by RDAbbott (September 1)
June 28, 2021
Join us Wednesday, September 1, 2021, from 2:00 – 3:00 PM (ET) for “Introduction to ARLANXEO Butyls, BRs, and SBRs,” a free webinar about ARLANXEO rubber materials for the tire industry and specialty markets. This live event is part of RDAbbott’s 2021 Webinar Series, which provides technical insights and processing recommendations from our supplier partners.
In addition to hearing a technically rich presentation, live webinar attendees will also have a chance to win a copy of ARLANXEO’s newly released Handbook of Synthetic Rubber by playing our BINGO game during the presentation. For all the details of our game, please read the “RDAbbott BINGO” section below.
Why You Should Attend
Butyl rubber (IIR) has a unique combination of structure and properties that impart permeation resistance, damping, and chemical resistance. Applications include tire inner liners, tubes, and bladders. In addition to butyl, this webinar examines butadiene (BR), a co-polymer that includes emulsion (E-SBR) and solution (S-SBR) grades of styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) that are used in many tire compounds.
What You Will Learn
- Properties, including gas transmission and resistance to water absorption
- How butyl, BR, and SBR are made and cured
- Commercial grades offered by ARLANXEO
- Applications for butyl, BR, and SBR
What Registrants Can Expect
All final registrants will receive access to the webinar recording, as well as additional post-event resources on this subject matter.
