Course Overview

This course offers a comprehensive overview of silicone elastomers, including basic silicone chemistry, mold manufacturing, information regarding pumping units and molding machines, manufacturing processes, fabrication techniques, problem solving and application areas.  Emphasis is on liquid injection molding (LIM/LSR).  This course is presented by a panel of experts in the silicone field, and time is allotted for discussion of specific project of interest.

Featured at this course is a one day "field trip" to ShinEtsu Silicones Technology Center. during which attendees will experience all the manufacturing processes involved in producing the actual LSR part.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Both entry level and experienced rubber technologists, rubber chemists, process engineers, laboratory manager, supervisors, technicians, shop foremen, quality assurance manager and engineers, technical sales personnel, molding technicians and rubber producers and users.
