Due to the concerns expressed by the rubber industry and related stakeholders, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has been working with RDAbbott to modify rule 1168 to allow the use of solvent-based Chemlok within the District.
This product comparison guide is designed to address the basic considerations when formulating a fluoroelastomer compound: “What is the environment?” “What is the application?” “What is the manufacturing process?” and “What is the part profile?” The answers to these questions will help narrow your search for a fluoroelastomer that can deliver optimal performance.
This manual provides general guidelines that can be used as reference in compounding fluoroelastomers. In addition to data regarding the physical properties yielded by various compounds and processes, the effects of potential contamination and the general requirements of certain types of applications (such as O-rings, molded goods, and extruded compounds) are also discussed. For more specific guidelines for the materials used in specific applications, refer to the 3M™ Dyneon™ Fluoroelastomer Recipe Book.
Advancements in rubber technology continue to push us to new heights and improve our daily lives. RDAbbott works with top-tier raw material suppliers such as Dow Corning, LORD, Cancarb, 3M, ARLANXEO, Rhein Chemie, Hallstar, and TSE to provide key technologies for tomorrow’s transportation.
TSE Industries is pleased to introduce MillaMed™ PU2055 and MillaMed™ PU2075, two new, pre-mixed polyurethane rubber compounds designed specifically for medical applications.
We are looking forward to attending and exhibiting at the Southern Rubber Group (SRG) Summer Technical Meeting June 12-14 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Visit RDAbbott in booth #9 at the Rubber in Automotive Conference in Troy, Michigan, June 13-14, and discover the latest advancements in elastomer materials and process innovations for the transportation industry.
We hope you had the opportunity to review the exciting news about In-Mold Bonding (IMB™) Adhesives Technologies for overmolding fluorosilicone rubber to thermoplastic components in the May 15 Rubber & Plastics News article.
On May 5, 2017, the LANXESS business unit Rhein Chemie (RCH) announced that Antilux® 500 has achieved food grade approval and may be used in the production of articles determined for food contact.
