Join us at LSR 2021, the premiere conference about liquid silicone rubber (LSR), at the Marriott Chicago Schaumburg in Schaumburg, Illinois, from September 13–16. LSR 2021 includes two days of top-notch technical presentations, an expert panel discussion entitled “Machine Technology to Support LSR Processing,” and a free off-site workshop on silicone characterization and processing simulations at SigmaSoft’s local facility.
In this live event, ARLANXEO Technical Service and Application Development Manager Kevin Kulbaba will describe the development, properties, applications, and advantages of ARLANXEO Butyls, BRs, and SBRs.
Cancarb Limited has been awarded a platinum sustainability rating from EcoVadis, a global provider of scorecards for corporate and environmental sustainability. Cancarb’s new rating indicates that the company is in the top 1% of its industry for the sustainable production of carbon black, which is added to thermoplastics and can contribute color, opacity, electrical resistivity, and protection from ultra-violet degradation.
Through chemorheological analysis, rubber fabricators and design engineers can understand the key quality characteristics of molded rubber parts before an initial prototype is made. Common types of CAD software support this computer-aided engineering (CAE) analysis and can use data that is acquired from Alpha Technologies’ instruments. This April 2021 presentation covers the use of this equipment for CAE and explains how to enter the collected data into different types of CAD software.
In this video presentation, RDAbbott’s Special Projects Manager Tom Martin provides an overview of the technical services and elastomer products RDAbbott provides, as well as highlights a few new rubber technologies impacting the transportation industry.
Moldable optical silicones are becoming increasingly popular in automotive, architectural, outdoor, and general-purpose lighting applications. Fabricators, tool makers, and other rubber industry players are needed to support the material set for this growth. This discussion will help newcomers get started, inform the experienced and hopefully even enlighten veterans on clear LSRs. It will provide an in-depth look at the materials from an uncured state to a functioning part; explaining unique properties, technical details and optical terms.
