“Sustainability: New Mobility Trends and Rubber in a Circular Economy” Webinar by RDAbbott (September 30)
August 6, 2022
Join ARLANXEO and RDAbbott on Friday, September 30, 2022, from 2:00 – 3:00 PM (ET) for “Sustainability: New Mobility Trends and Rubber in a Circular Economy,” a free webinar about the intersection of environmental sustainability, the rubber value chain, and New Mobility—an emerging sector that includes vehicle electrification and autonomous driving. Keltan® Eco, a bio and sustainably sourced EPDM from ARLANXEO, has a 10-year commercial history and can be part of the solution to overcoming industry challenges.
In addition to hearing a technically rich presentation, live webinar attendees will also have a chance to win a copy of ARLANXEO’s sought-after 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
The automotive industry uses EPDM rubber in components ranging from door and window seals to radiator hoses, belts, engine mounts, and windshield wipers. Keltan® EPDM combines heat and environmental resistance with good mechanical and elastic properties, but automotive designers are seeking compounds that combine high-performance with environmental sustainability and support emerging technologies. With the exact same specifications and performance as conventional EPDM, Keltan® Eco utilizes sustainably sourced raw materials.
What You Will Learn
- New drive technologies, such as battery electric vehicles, and their engineering challenges
- Broad trends in New Mobility and what’s needed to plan for the future
- The rubber value chain, from monomers to polymers and from molders to end users, as well as where sustainable options fit
- What bio-based Keltan® Eco EPDM rubber is and how it can help shrink your carbon footprint
- Formulations and properties with Keltan® Eco and other sustainable ingredients
