Dow has launched SILASTIC™ MS-5002 Moldable Silicone, a LSR for high-volume production of parts, such as the light guides in adaptive driving beam headlights. This new optical material has very low mold fouling for faster cycle times and is specially formulated for injection molded parts with less-complex geometries.
RDAbbott’s Rick Ziebell, will be an instructor at M.R. Toub Training’s “Silicone Elastomers Technology and Fabrication Course.” This four-day, university-accredited course will provide participants with 3.2 continuing education credits from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. The in-person event is scheduled for April 5 to April 8, 2022. The course locations are the Kellogg West Conference Center and Hotel in Pomona, California, and M.R. Mold & Engineering, site of a one-day field trip, in nearby Brea, California.

RDAbbott will present “Essentials of LSR Materials and Processing” at Molding 2021, a conference that is widely recognized as the most important forum for technical information and business conditions in the injection molding industry. Rick Ziebell, Vice President of Technology and Technical Fellow will deliver RDAbbott’s presentation about liquid silicone rubber (LSR) on Tuesday, September 21, 2021, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (ET) as part of the LSR Molding – Auxiliary Equipment Breakout track.
Join us at Molding 2021, a conference that’s widely recognized as the most important forum for technical information and business conditions in the injection molding industry. Molding 2021 is scheduled for September 21 to 23, 2021 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
Through chemorheological analysis, rubber fabricators and design engineers can understand the key quality characteristics of molded rubber parts before an initial prototype is made. Common types of CAD software support this computer-aided engineering (CAE) analysis and can use data that is acquired from Alpha Technologies’ instruments. This April 2021 presentation covers the use of this equipment for CAE and explains how to enter the collected data into different types of CAD software.
In this recording, Rick Ziebell introduces revolutionary NovaSperse® Third-Stream Modifier technologies from NovationSi that are breaking new ground for modifying LSR properties during the liquid injection molding process, as well as enhancing HCR using other fabrication processes.
On Tuesday, March 30, 2020, from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (ET), RDAbbott is hosting a free webinar on “Third-Stream Additives that Modify LSR and HCR.” In this live event, Rick Ziebell, RDAbbott’s Technical Fellow and Vice President of Technology, will introduce revolutionary NovaSperse® Third-Stream Modifier technologies from NovationSi that are breaking new ground for modifying LSR properties during the liquid injection molding (LIM) process.
During the 2020 International Silicone Conference hosted by Rubber & Plastics News, Rick Ziebell RDAbbott’s Technical Fellow and Vice President of Technology, provided a technical presentation titled “Third-Stream Additives that Modify LSR and HCR.” A PDF of this presentation is now available for your review.
RDAbbott and Dow recently sponsored a Rubber & Plastics News “Ask the Expert” livestream presentation on “Optical Silicone Advances.” A recording of this presentation is now available on-demand.
