Rick Ziebell, RDAbbott’s Vice President of Technology and Technical Fellow, will be an instructor for Silicone Elastomers Technology and Fabrication, an in-person course from M.R. Toub Training, scheduled for January 31 to February 3, 2022. This university-accredited course will provide participants with 3.2 continuing education credits from California Polytechnic State University.
RDAbbott is a co-organizer, sponsor, and exhibitor for LSR 2022, the premiere conference about liquid silicone rubber (LSR), which can be used with liquid injection molding (LIM) to produce high-quality silicone parts. This year’s event is scheduled for September 13 – 15, 2022, in Irvine, California, and will include technical presentations by RDAbbott and several of its supplier partners. RDAbbott will also participate in a panel discussion about LSR Processing.
RDAbbott is sharing a recording of their recent webinar titled “SILASTIC™ Fully Fluorinated Liquid Silicone Rubber: Properties, Processing, and Applications” This 41-minute presentation about F-LSR products from Dow was livestreamed on June 16, 2022.
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.
Plan to join RDAbbott at LSR 2022, the premiere conference about liquid silicone rubber (LSR), in Irvine, California, from September 13 – 15. RDAbbott is an organizer, co-sponsor, and co-exhibitor for this event, which will include technical presentations by RDAbbott and two of our supplier partners: Dow and DuPont. RDAbbott will also moderate a panel discussion about LSR processing and interact with attendees in its shared exhibit space with Dow.
Join us August 22 – 25 in Ohio for “Manufacturing with Silicone Rubber,” a comprehensive workshop hosted by RDAbbott from a fabricator’s point-of-view. Attendees of this four-day workshop will learn practical techniques and insights, along with equipment troubleshooting tips for processing silicone rubber, from industry professionals through a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on evaluation.
RDAbbott will exhibit and present at the 2022 International Silicone Conference, a biennial event for the silicone industry that is organized by Rubber News. The conference is scheduled for May 10 and 11 at the Sheraton Suites Akron in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. RDAbbott will exhibit in tabletop booth #10, deliver a technical presentation, and provide the closing address. RDAbbott industry veterans Rick Ziebell and John Carroll will share valuable information and insights at an event where the elite in the silicone industry meet.
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.
RDAbbott will exhibit, deliver a technical presentation, and provide the closing address at Rubber News’ 2022 International Silicone Conference. The conference is scheduled for May 10 and 11 at the Sheraton Suites Akron in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.
RDAbbott invites you to watch this a Sodick & Friends webinar that was guest-presented by RDAbbott Application Engineer Craig Lustek on February 9, 2022.
