Alpha Technologies has published a study about measuring the quality of mixes that contain recycled rubber powders (RRP). The authors compared ASTM test standards that are designed for use with rubber process analyzers and determined which tests are most and least effective with RRPs.
RDAbbott recently hosted a webinar titled “The ABCs of RDC: Rubber Dispersion Chemicals.” This 25-minute presentation about leading products and new solutions from RDC S.r.l. was livestreamed on March 30, 2023.
Dow has published a case study that explains how its award-winning SILASTIC™ MS-4007 Moldable Silicone enabled award-winning emergency vehicle lighting. Dow’s two-part, heat-cured silicone resin is lighter than glass, resists yellowing better than plastic, and can withstand high heat and moisture while providing excellent light transmittance for optical clarity.
Dow has shared a technical presentation about how its optical silicones are advancing new LED applications in automotive lighting, sports stadium lighting, and UV drinking water purification systems. This information-rich resource examines the benefits of using SILASTIC™ Moldable Optical Silicones.
Hallstar is sharing a technical presentation about replacing phthalates with polymeric esters in vinyl foams. Researchers determined that high-quality vinyl foam can be produced using a polymeric ester plasticizer as either a partial replacement or a full replacement for DIDP, a monomeric phthalate plasticizer.
Dow is sharing a technical presentation about how its SILASTIC™ Moldable Optical Silicones are enabling advanced automotive lighting. For example, adaptive driving beam (ADB) technologies use a high-power LED matrix with a silicone primary lens. Rear lamps and indicators use linear LEDs with a silicone coupler and light guide. Dow’s technical presentation also covers material, mechanical, and optical properties.
Starting February 23, RDAbbott will launch its 2023 webinar series that will feature technical insights, material updates, and processing recommendations from our supplier partners throughout the year.
A novel silicone material from Dow is helping LumenFlow, a provider of lighting solutions, to improve the accuracy and efficiency of its optical assembly operations. SILASTIC™ MS-1002 Moldable Silicone can withstand the high temperatures of reflow soldering and supports geometries that are not possible with the thermoplastics used in traditional optics.
Mining Magazine recently hosted three podcast episodes to introduce Parker Lord’s new Chemlok® Cold-Bond (CB) 150 Adhesive one-part system. In this series of podcasts, Parker Lord’s scientists, application engineer and market leader dive a little deeper into the features, competitive advantages, performance data, and applications for Chemlok® CB 150.
