In this recording, Rick Ziebell introduces revolutionary NovaSperse® Third-Stream Modifier technologies from NovationSi that are breaking new ground for modifying LSR properties during the liquid injection molding process, as well as enhancing HCR using other fabrication processes.
DiamondKote™ DKW-4168 is a mold release agent from ITW Pro Brands that was developed to meet the growing needs of FKM seal and gasket manufacturers who serve the automotive supply industry. In addition to fluorocarbon-based fluoroelastomers, this versatile mold release can be used with silicones, peroxide-cured EPDMs, and polyacrylates. This demonstration video from ITW Pro Brands shows how DiamondKote™ DKW-4168 is packaged, applied, and used.
3M has recently launched new web resources for its next generation of 3M™ Dyneon™ Peroxide Cure Fluoroelastomers (FKMs). These next-gen FKMs offer many benefits over previous products, including high to excellent resistance against chemical fluids and good physical properties right out of the press. Plus, due to their ability to be cured without metal oxides, these FKMs have improved acid resistance for reduced volume swell.
Parker LORD recently hosted a webinar on “How to Solve Common Mold Release Problems.” We wanted to make sure you have access to this excellent resource.
Parker LORD has released a couple more technical resources highlighting its revolutionary adhesion additive Chemlok® 3Stream (3S) that transforms regular LSR into self-bonding LSR.
During the 2020 International Silicone Conference hosted by Rubber & Plastics News, Rick Ziebell RDAbbott’s Technical Fellow and Vice President of Technology, provided a technical presentation titled “Third-Stream Additives that Modify LSR and HCR.” A PDF of this presentation is now available for your review.
