Starting September 29, ARLANXEO is hosting a webinar series titled “Innovation x Sustainability.” Through December 15, ARLANXEO will hold 45-minute webinars each Thursday morning and evening that will cover a wide variety of topics on sustainable innovations. The technical presenters in this series will address future challenges facing the rubber industry and how ARLANXEO is working continuously to reduce its own emissions in the production and manufacturing of its products; is selecting responsible chemicals for compounding and sourcing bio-based raw ingredients to design longer-life and sustainable applications; is improving end-of-life solutions for rubber products; and can help you reduce the environmental footprint of your rubber products.
Visit RDAbbott in Booth 613 at the 2022 International Elastomer Conference (IEC) hosted by the Rubber Division, ACS from October 10 to 13 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Meet our team as they represent RDAbbott and its supplier partners. We look forward to seeing you there!
RDAbbott recently hosted a webinar titled “Benefits of Thermax® N990 to Rubber Compounding.” This 53-minute presentation about Cancarb Thermax® N990 thermal carbon black was livestreamed on April 28, 2022. It is part of RDAbbott’s 2022 Webinar Series, which provided technical insights and processing recommendations from its supplier partners.
Join us on Thursday, April 28, 2022, from 2:00 – 3:00 PM (ET) for a free webinar about Cancarb Thermax N990, the largest particle size, lowest structure thermal carbon black on the market. In this presentation, you’ll learn how replacing some furnace black with Thermax N990 can lead to improvements in mixing and processing while maintaining physical properties.
In this webinar, Alpha Technologies Engineers John Dick and Richard Hanzlik will discuss the application of Rubber Process Analyzer (RPA) test methods to help identify root causes of common processing and compounding problems.
In this webinar, Hallstar Senior Chemist Erica Anderson, will explain the science behind monomeric and polymeric plasticizers, as well as how they function in different elastomers. This webinar will explore the structure-property relationships between a wide range of plasticizer chemistries and cover Hallstar’s selection for desired performance enhancements and elastomer applications. Moreover, it will provide specific case studies showing the advantage plasticizers bring to different polymer formulations.
Cancarb has launched Thermax® N990CG, a low PAH grade of thermal carbon black that gives customers the ability to minimize the amount of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in their products without sacrificing quality and performance.
RDAbbott recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the headquarters for NovationSi, its manufacturing subsidiary, at 25 Foundation Place in Barberton, Ohio.
