Webinar Description: In this webinar, Hallstar will explain the science behind monomeric and polymeric plasticizers, as well as how they function in different elastomers. They will explore the structure-property relationships between a wide range of plasticizer chemistries and cover their selection for desired performance enhancements and elastomer applications. Moreover, Hallstar will provide specific case studies showing the advantage plasticizers bring to different polymer formulations. This webinar will provide expert education on ester plasticizer and polymer modifying chemistry, as well as outlining key criteria in selecting the right plasticizer or modifier for your application. It will be highly informative for new rubber compounders expanding their knowledge of compounding tools, veteran compounders venturing into new markets and applications, and non-technical purchasing or salespeople hoping to better understand their company’s products and chemistries.
Some take aways/learning objectives are:
• Functions of plasticizers in elastomer compounds
• Key factors in plasticizer selection to enhance product performance
• Gaining a better understanding of the wide range of available plasticizers and their respective benefits
