Moldable optical silicones are becoming increasingly popular in automotive, architectural, outdoor, and general-purpose lighting applications. By watching this recorded presentation you’ll get an in-depth look at how optically clear LSRs are molded into functional parts with unique properties.
Starting in March, RDAbbott will be launching a webinar series featuring products from many of our supplier partners. These webinars will provide technical insights and processing recommendations, as well as feature new products and technologies.
RDAbbott will reconnect with customers and colleagues at the International Elastomers Conference (IEC) hosted by the Rubber Division, ACS in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from October 4 to 6 in Booth 1933. Members of the RDAbbott team will highlight the company’s capabilities and those of its supplier partners.
Self-lubricating LSR is the material of choice for electrical sealing applications in automotive applications. With constant changes in the industry, the performance requirements of this material becomes increasingly challenging and related material formulations constantly more complex. This discussion will give an overview on factors impacting sealing properties, propose a new additive to noticeably shift the thermal stability of a whole material family, and provide insights on how this new additive can stabilize the set of mechanical properties at elevated temperatures.
Visit RDAbbott in Booth 1933 at the 2021 International Elastomer Conference (IEC) hosted by the Rubber Division, ACS from October 4 to 7 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Meet our team as they represent RDAbbott and its supplier partners. We look forward to seeing you there!
RDAbbott is an organizer, sponsor, and exhibitor for LSR 2021, the premiere conference about liquid silicone rubber (LSR). This year’s event is scheduled for September 13–16, 2021, in Schaumburg, Illinois, and will include technical presentations by RDAbbott and three of its supplier partners: Dow, Parker LORD, and DuPont. Together with Dow, RDAbbott will exhibit and co-sponsor the lanyards and event.
Join us at LSR 2021, the premiere conference about liquid silicone rubber (LSR), at the Marriott Chicago Schaumburg in Schaumburg, Illinois, from September 13–16. LSR 2021 includes two days of top-notch technical presentations, an expert panel discussion entitled “Machine Technology to Support LSR Processing,” and a free off-site workshop on silicone characterization and processing simulations at SigmaSoft’s local facility.
In this video presentation, RDAbbott’s Special Projects Manager Tom Martin provides an overview of the technical services and elastomer products RDAbbott provides, as well as highlights a few new rubber technologies impacting the transportation industry.
Moldable optical silicones are becoming increasingly popular in automotive, architectural, outdoor, and general-purpose lighting applications. Fabricators, tool makers, and other rubber industry players are needed to support the material set for this growth. This discussion will help newcomers get started, inform the experienced and hopefully even enlighten veterans on clear LSRs. It will provide an in-depth look at the materials from an uncured state to a functioning part; explaining unique properties, technical details and optical terms.
