Register for this webinar here: Basic Rubber Technology

This webinar will introduce the attendees to the basics and most important topics related to thermoset rubber compounds. About 15 billion kilograms of rubber are produced ever year. Rubber finds its way into wide range of applications in the automotive, medical, appliance, electrical, and chemical industries. As a class of materials, rubber has many useful properties because of its unique molecular structure. These include being soft and relatively flexible, high ultimate elongation coupled with good elastic recovery, useful over a wide temperature range, and good chemical resistance.

A part of the presentation the following topics will be covered:

  • Introduction to polymers – how rubber is different than plastic
  • Overview of rubber properties
  • How rubber compound recipes are created
  • The essentials of rubber mixing and molding
  • Specification of rubber compounds
