“Chemlok® Overview, Best Practices, and Troubleshooting” Seminar Hosted by RDAbbott (July 24)

On Wednesday, July 24, 2024, from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM (ET), RDAbbott is hosting a free technical seminar at our Barberton, Ohio, facility featuring Chemlok® rubber-to-substrate adhesives from Parker Lord. During this in-person event, Parker Lord Application Engineer Brady Hultman will review the rubber-to-substrate bonding process from start to finish. This review will include proper substrate preparation, adhesive preparation and application techniques, coated part handling, and molding best practices. The training will then transition into a troubleshooting workshop where failed parts are studied for bond failures and preventative actions. In addition, RDAbbott’s East Coast Sales Manager Jason Huff will provide a brief overview of the latest product developments from Parker Lord.

Webinar Recording: “Effect of Thermax® N990 on EPDM Electrical Percolation Threshold”

Electrical resistivity is an important property for various EPDM applications, such as wire and cable, battery and fuel cell gaskets, and automotive profiles. To achieve the specified electrical resistivity values in these applications, it is necessary to replace smaller particle size furnace blacks with mineral fillers and/or larger particle size carbon blacks. This 47-minute presentation highlights the results of Cancarb’s technical study that compared blends of hard clay, Thermax® N990, and N550, and evaluated how the size, structure, and surface chemistry of these filler systems impact the insulative and conductive behaviors of the EPDM compounds.
