International Elastomer Conference (October 8 – 10)

Visit RDAbbott in booth 645 at the 2019 International Elastomer Conference October 8 – 10 in Cleveland, Ohio. We’ll be featuring innovations in 3D printing from German RepRap using Dow SILASTIC™ 3D 3335 Liquid Silicone Rubber; as well as featuring studies in elastomer sealing performance in hydrogen fuel system technologies using Cancarb Thermax® N990 Thermal Carbon Black and ARLANXEO X_Butyl® Bromobutyl.


Register online at by October 7 and use the customer invitation code EP645 to receive a free expo pass compliments of RDAbbott. (Please note: Only a limited supply of guest passes is available, so you’ll want to act quickly.)
