Parker Lord is hosting a free virtual training event featuring its Chemlok® rubber-to-substrate adhesives on December 6 at 11 AM (EST). Parker Lord Senior Scientist Jeff Means and Application Engineer Cristina DiFranco will provide the technical training. This virtual training will consist of two, one-hour pre-recorded training sessions followed by a live question-and-answer session with each presenter. The first training session will focus on proper substrate preparation, adhesive preparation and application techniques, coated part handling, and molding best practices. The second training session will focus on troubleshooting bond failures and preventative actions.
RDAbbott is stocked with premium elastomer products in warehouses strategically located throughout the United States and Mexico.

Join us on Thursday, July 28, 2022, from 2:00 – 3:00 PM (ET) for a free webinar about Hallstar ester plasticizers and magnesium oxides. In this webinar, Hallstar experts from both its technical and commercial teams will present a deep-dive into plasticizer selection and demonstrate how their high-quality magnesium oxides make it the leading brand for critical elastomer applications.
Global regulations, tire labeling, strict OE requirements, vehicle electrification, and customer expectations are driving advancements in tire applications. In this webinar, you’ll learn about material requirements vital for next-generation tire treads and recent product developments that address them. You’ll also learn how these product developments can be extended to non-tire applications, such as belting, anti-vibration bushings, roll covers, and rubber tracks which include blends with other elastomers like NR, SBR, CR and NBR.
Taking advantage of the strengths of both liquid silicone rubber (LSR) and fluorosilicone technologies, Dow has a range of fully fluorinated LSRs that can provide desirable process efficiencies of LSR to be integrated with the fluid resistance performance capabilities of a fluorosilicone. This live webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of the unique properties, ease of processing, and key applications for Dow’s SILASTIC™ Fluoro Liquid Silicone Rubber (F-LSR) products.
