Description: Elatsomers are broadly classified, based on the source of origin as Natural Rubber (NR) and Synthetic Rubbers (SR) and further the synthetic rubbers are divided into general purpose and special purpose according their applications. All the elastomers require curing to convert the plastic substances into useful elastomeric product. The curing system introduces chemical bonds between the elastomer molecules and thereby it develops a network. The curing characteristics are measured using rheometer and the crosslink density by chemical methods. The rate of cure, type of cross link, and the intensity of crosslink decide the curing time required for shaping a particular elastomeric product. The major elastomeric curing systems are sulphur, peroxide, metal oxides, resins, amines, soap and metal stearates. In this articles the selection of cure systems along with suitable accelerators and activators, the mechanism of chemical cross links, the relative thermal stability of such cross links and the effect of such cross links on physical, mechanical, thermal and dynamic mechanical properties of elastomeric product would be discussed in details..

Description: Thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) are one of the fastest growing polymeric materials which combine the elastic and mechanical properties of cross-linked rubbers with the melt processability of thermoplastics. The unique characteristics of TPEs make them very useful and attractive alternatives for conventional elastomers in a variety of markets, such as automotives, footwear, buildings and constructions, wires and cables etc. Styrenic thermoplastic elastomers like S-B-S block copolymers are most important class of soft TPEs. Thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) are a special class of TPEs, produced by simultaneous mixing and crosslinking of a rubber with a thermoplastic. A comprehensive overview will be given on the recent developments of the TPEs/TPVs with special reference to the technological advancement. TPVs have undergone evolutionary changes in terms of the selection of polymers, design of cross-linking, compounding techniques and method of production to achieve better elastic recovery, easy processability and targeted hardness etc. The concept of new generation Super TPVs will be also touched upon.

Description: Cross-linking or vulcanization is a crucial and important step in any rubber product manufacturing process. Several elastomeric properties are enhanced after cross-linking process. Cross-linking rubbers with peroxides has been employed for more than 70 years already since there are several advantages, for instance, its ability to cross-link both saturated as well as unsaturated rubbers, high temperature resistance, good compresion set properties etc. The mechanism of peroxide cross-linking is also less complicated. Besides enhancing the characteristics and kinetics of cross-linking process (peroxide initiated), multipurpose co-agent can also set new network structure; exhibiting distinct features. Judiciously selected peroxide along with co-agents are believed to deliver good balance between processing and properties that are essential for the longivity of a rubbery product. A comprehensive overview on Peroxide/Co-agent cross-linking in terms of the selection of rubbers, level of cross-linkers, chemical nature of peroxide and type of co-agents, compounding techniques, case studies for desining various rubber products, use of multifunctional peroxide, new generation special co-agents etc. will be given. Challenges of peroxide vulcanization will also be touched upon.

Description: NR Lattices being natural products are less stable than SBR Lattices. NR Lattices require more testing and control measures to produce latex foam successfully. In order to successfully produce latex form using NR Lattices, the author has used a Low Ammonia preserved NR latex concentrate to illustrate this production process. Are you struggling or experiencing issues with producing NR latex foam in a laboratory or factory environment? Do you find that the foam is very temperamental or have you encountered numerous issues such as irregular day-to-day production using the same batch of latex compound or issues with foaming station efficiency? Common problems like these result in factory downtime and which can equate to significant losses. The author discusses all the possible scenarios in latex foam production and analyses with scientific explanations together with recommendations to prevent unwanted recurring issues in foam production including loose skin, laking, rat holes, uneven hardness, hard lumps and voids in the foam matrix. This is a two-part presentation. Part one describes latex foam and all the processes that you need to know. Part two is the full detailed account of process controls and trouble shooting in the latex foam manufacturing process.
Expert: Latex foam consultant with over 25 years’ experience in latex foam processing. Extensive knowledge in natural rubber lattices, Polyurethane foams, Latex foams, rubber adhesives, rubber to metal bonding, powder rubber and thermoplastic rubbers. Mr Chong has played a crucial part in consulting for both national and international companies. His value within the industry lies in his depth of experience in, and understanding of, the intricacies of latex foam production and manufacturing, abilities in complex research and development and effective implementation to improve and streamline processes. Drawing on his significant market and industry knowledge, Mr Chong has produced a comprehensive guide to latex foam processing.

Description: FTIR spectroscopy is a powerful technique for studying the effects of polymer formulation and process factors on surface chemistry, component compatibility, and morphology; all of which relate to end-use performance characteristics like adhesion and mechanical properties. Of the many techniques available, surface attenuated total reflectance spectroscopy (SATR-FTIR) is arguably one of the most versatile FTIR methods, enabling the study of neat liquids, solutions, dispersions, solid films, solid powders, adhesives, adherends, and countless other multi-component systems. Aside from being fast, SATR can be applied in problem-solving situations pertaining to cure reactions (liquid and dispersion states), surface compositions & adhesion, process history & surface heterogeneity (e.g., extruded films), material structure, and product/process control. This seminar, although focused on SATR, will be the first in a series pertaining to applications of spectroscopic methods in product and process development. Those attending can expect to learn how SATR-FTIR can be applied to their own real-world product development & problem-solving situations. The webinar presentation includes: • Overview of FTIR spectroscopy & methods; • Description of the SATR technique; • Example Applications - Adhesion, Surface migration, Extruded film heterogeneity, Polymerization reactions, Material structure & composition

Description: NR Lattices being natural products are less stable than SBR Lattices. NR Lattices require more testing and control measures to produce latex foam successfully. In order to successfully produce latex form using NR Lattices, the author has used a Low Ammonia preserved NR latex concentrate to illustrate this production process. Are you struggling or experiencing issues with producing NR latex foam in a laboratory or factory environment? Do you find that the foam is very temperamental or have you encountered numerous issues such as irregular day-to-day production using the same batch of latex compound or issues with foaming station efficiency? Common problems like these result in factory downtime and which can equate to significant losses. The author discusses all the possible scenarios in latex foam production and analyses with scientific explanations together with recommendations to prevent unwanted recurring issues in foam production including loose skin, laking, rat holes, uneven hardness, hard lumps and voids in the foam matrix. This is a two-part presentation. Part one describes latex foam and all the processes that you need to know. Part two is the full detailed account of process controls and trouble shooting in the latex foam manufacturing process.
Expert: Latex foam consultant with over 25 years’ experience in latex foam processing. Extensive knowledge in natural rubber lattices, Polyurethane foams, Latex foams, rubber adhesives, rubber to metal bonding, powder rubber and thermoplastic rubbers. Mr Chong has played a crucial part in consulting for both national and international companies.

Description: Blooming, Bleeding are terms for the same phenomenon. Ingredients migrating to the surface and either crystallize or building an oily layer on the surface of rubber. Both phenomena give reason to customer concerns, if not claims. In case of crystallization rubber surface turns grey to pale white. Sometime there is Iridescence underneath the crystalline layer. This layer under the crystalles stays liquid due to a melting point suppression. The color is created by light fraction. There are no chromophores involved. Migration to the surface of the rubber happens due to a lack of solubility or compatibility, because rubber below glass transition temperature - even after vulcanization - behaves more like a liquid. We observe temperature dependent migration and separation In this Webinar we will demonstrate the reason behind Blooming and Bleeding. We will go through all family of ingredients either in none polar or in polar rubbers. We will show effects in processing, even we might not see any bloom or bleed. We will discuss examples, how to obtain data of solubility limits in a practicable way without sophisticated equipment. Even the solubility delta paramter can be easily measured with little effort. The participant should be able to judge ingredients in his formula regarding the danger of blooming or bleeding. He should be able to take measures to avoid this phenomena.

Description: Mooney test is based on a steady state rotating rotor embedded in a rubber specimen, contained within a sealed in a pressurized cavity. The flow field has been studied by using the flow tracking technique and by numerical simulation. Particular attention is dedicated to determine the shear rate in Mooney viscosimeter, showing a non-inear regime from zero up to 2.5 s-1 at the border. This results clearly lead that the Mooney viscosimeter with flat rotor is not adequate to measure the shear viscosity because does not guarantee a unique shear rate in the chamber. Capillary rubber rheometry a consequent improvement to generate a constant shear rate in order to calculate directly the shear viscosity.

Description: The changing demands for high performance , end of vehicle life long service, even at adverse service conditions and for compliance with regulation are posing tough challenge to the automotive rubber components manufacturers. The oil seals and moulded rubber products are generally used to seal the lubricants, contain the ingress dust from out side, provide damping where-ever noise and vibration are to be suppressed . Oil seals are low value, yet functionally critical components and hence, the cost of replacement of defective seals and its consequential damage are much more than the value of the product itself. Considering the functional criticality, the quality must be built in the product design and in the manufacturing process. In this KnowHow Webinar, the different types of seals and moulded rubber products (MRP) used in different parts of automobiles, and their functional requirement would be explained briefly. Thereafter, the types of rubber used for producing oil seals, the critical design factors, and different types of manufacturing processes and their relative merits would be presented in details. The presentation concludes with typical problems encountered during the manufacturing process and the remedies to over come such quality issues.
