RDAbbott will provide the instructors for The Los Angeles Rubber Group’s (TLARGI) 2020 Basic Rubber Technology Course. RDAbbott’s Rick Ziebell, Technical Fellow and Vice President of Technology, and Matt Rogers, Applications Engineering and Technical Support, will lead this 15-week course that begins on August 27th and ends on December 17th. The course consists of live weekly webinars that will be held on Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:30 PM (Pacific Time).
Whether your background is operations, sales, technical, finance or management, TLARGI’s “Basic Rubber Technology Course” is invaluable to furthering your success in the rubber industry. Typically this course is a 20-week, in-classroom setting comprised of two semesters. But due to the COVID pandemic, TLARGI is offering this exceptional training in web format for 2020.
Rick Ziebell, RDAbbott’s Vice President of Technology, is scheduled to present “Modifying Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) Properties with Third-Stream Additives,” on Wednesday, July 1, from 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM at the Smithers Silicone & TPE Elastomers U.S. Virtual 2020 Summit.
During week two of this three-day virtual summit, Liquid Silicone Rubber Solutions is the topic and RDAbbott’s Rick Ziebell is one of the technical presenters. Ziebell’s presentation, “Modifying LSR Properties with Third-Stream Additives,” is scheduled for July 1 from 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM.
Dow SILASTIC™ silicone elastomers are meeting increasingly challenging requirements while supporting environmental sustainability and product innovation. This article outlines some valuable resources to help you understand the features and uses of Dow’s high performing silicones.
RDAbbott will demonstrate a revolutionary application for overmolding liquid silicone rubber (LSR) at MD&M West this year. RDAbbott, in partnership with M.R. Mold & Engineering Corp., will showcase a production cell where 50-durometer Dow SILASTIC™ LTC 9400 LSR, a low-temperature curing (LTC) elastomer for high-volume injection molding, is overmolded onto a custom-designed flying disc. Historically, LSR overmolding onto low-melting-point plastics and other thermally-sensitive components, such as electronics, has not been possible because of the high curing temperatures required.
We invite you to join us at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee (UWM) School of Continuing Education’s 2020 Silicone Elastomers Technology and Fabrication Course from February 17-20 at the Embassy Suites in Anaheim, CA.
We are looking forward to presenting at the Smithers Rapra Silicone Elastomers World Summit November 26-27 in Vienna, Austria.
