RDAbbott is designing silicone-thermoplastic bonding systems that provide good economics and improved environmental resistance.
RDAbbott has signed a new distribution agreement with an affiliate of Kraton Performance Polymers, Inc., a leading global producer of styrenic block copolymers, to distribute Cariflex™ isoprene rubbers* to manufacturers and fabricators in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
The Alpha Technologies AT10™ is a CE certified universal tensile tester for rubber, plastics, and additional materials. A table-top model with a maximum load value of 10kN, the AT10 performs tension, compression, peel, tear, adhesion, O-ring and other tests for quality control and R&D applications.
TSE Industries is pleased to introduce Millathane® XP-9075, a new type of Millathane millable polyurethane based on a polycarbonate polyol technology.
3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer LTFE 6320Z and LTFE 6350Z are terpolymers made from vinylidene fluoride, tetrafluoroethylene and perfluoromethylvinylether, and contain a cure site monomer.
This comparative study between Millathane® XP-9075 and Millathane® 66 Premilled, along with a modified XP-9075 formulation for improved compression set show that Millathane® XP-9075 provides an excellent combination of oil and heat resistance, plus water and humidity resistance.
RDAbbott has teamed up with Dow Corning and 3M to develop a new silicone technology that is both strong and light weight.
The 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomers Compound Recipes booklet is a guide for evaluating, processing, and troubleshooting FKM with certain 3M products.
Between our technical staff, on-site lab capabilities, and ISO accredited systems, RDAbbott is equipped AND READY to tackle nearly any design challenge you can throw at us.
The first step in developing an FKM part is determining a formulation to withstand the part’s future environment. The part’s environment will dictate the physical properties required for your rubber compound. This chart is an excellent starting point for developing that initial formulation.
