Hallstar is sharing a technical presentation about replacing phthalates with polymeric esters in vinyl foams. Researchers determined that high-quality vinyl foam can be produced using a polymeric ester plasticizer as either a partial replacement or a full replacement for DIDP, a monomeric phthalate plasticizer.
We invite you to join us at the Rubber Roller Group Annual Meeting May 7 – 9, 2023, at Treasure Island, a Radisson Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. RDAbbott will have a table-top exhibit set up during their expo on Monday, May 8. We plan to feature our product lines from ARLANXEO, Parker Lord, TSE, Dow, Hallstar, and NovationSi and more.
Starting February 23, RDAbbott will launch its 2023 webinar series that will feature technical insights, material updates, and processing recommendations from our supplier partners throughout the year.
Hallstar has finalized its purchase of LANXESS’ ester manufacturing facility in Greensboro, North Carolina. The acquisition expands the Chicago-based company’s manufacturing capacity, product portfolio, and employee roster. As part of the acquisition, Hallstar is gaining new product lines of brominated flame retardants and phthalate-free plasticizers, including benzoate and citrate esters.
RDAbbott will showcase its extensive portfolio of elastomer products and technologies at the International Elastomers Conference (IEC), an industry-leading event hosted by the Rubber Division, ACS in Knoxville, Tennessee, from October 10 to 13 (Booth 613). RDAbbott will also highlight the capabilities of its supplier partners who are exhibiting and, in some cases, presenting technical papers during IEC’s Technical Conference.
RDAbbott recently hosted a webinar titled “Polymer Modification Roadmap for Elastomers: Plasticizers and Maglite®.” This 59-minute presentation about Hallstar ester plasticizers and magnesium oxides was livestreamed on July 28, 2022.
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.
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.
Hallstar is supporting the Future of STEM Scholars Initiative by sponsoring a chemistry student from one of the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
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.
