Moldable optical silicones are becoming increasingly popular in automotive, architectural, outdoor, and general-purpose lighting applications. By watching this recorded presentation you’ll get an in-depth look at how optically clear LSRs are molded into functional parts with unique properties.
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.
Self-lubricating LSR is the material of choice for electrical sealing applications in automotive applications. With constant changes in the industry, the performance requirements of this material becomes increasingly challenging and related material formulations constantly more complex. This discussion will give an overview on factors impacting sealing properties, propose a new additive to noticeably shift the thermal stability of a whole material family, and provide insights on how this new additive can stabilize the set of mechanical properties at elevated temperatures.
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.
RDAbbott is an organizer, sponsor, and exhibitor for LSR 2021, the premiere conference about liquid silicone rubber (LSR). This year’s event is scheduled for September 13–16, 2021, in Schaumburg, Illinois, and will include technical presentations by RDAbbott and three of its supplier partners: Dow, Parker LORD, and DuPont. Together with Dow, RDAbbott will exhibit and co-sponsor the lanyards and event.
Join us at LSR 2021, the premiere conference about liquid silicone rubber (LSR), at the Marriott Chicago Schaumburg in Schaumburg, Illinois, from September 13–16. LSR 2021 includes two days of top-notch technical presentations, an expert panel discussion entitled “Machine Technology to Support LSR Processing,” and a free off-site workshop on silicone characterization and processing simulations at SigmaSoft’s local facility.
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 video presentation, RDAbbott’s Special Projects Manager Tom Martin provides an overview of the technical services and elastomer products RDAbbott provides, as well as highlights a few new rubber technologies impacting the transportation industry.
Moldable optical silicones are becoming increasingly popular in automotive, architectural, outdoor, and general-purpose lighting applications. Fabricators, tool makers, and other rubber industry players are needed to support the material set for this growth. This discussion will help newcomers get started, inform the experienced and hopefully even enlighten veterans on clear LSRs. It will provide an in-depth look at the materials from an uncured state to a functioning part; explaining unique properties, technical details and optical terms.
