Rubber Technology and Testing for Achieving Product Performance (ACS - RD Certificate Course)

Instructor: Mr. John S Dick

The class will provide an intensive overview of rubber compounding for product performance and is based on the book Rubber Technology and Testing for Performance 2nd Ed. (Hanser Publications) (book included in course fee).  The textbook is included in the price of the courses.  This class is geared towards rubber compounders, rubber chemists, process engineers, product engineers, laboratory managers, R & D scientists, technical service representatives and material suppliers.  Take this course with “Solving Problems in Rubber Compounding and Processing” and / or with “Raw Materials Supply Chain for Rubber Products” for registration savings.
About the Instructor

John Dick, a senior rubber scientist with Alpha Technologies, has over thirty years of experience in the rubber industry. Mr. Dick has authored over 50 journal and magazine publications and four books on polymer technology. He received the Monsanto Master Technical Service Award in 1994, the ACS Rubber Division Best Paper Award in 1995 and a University of Akron Appreciation Award in 1998 for Teaching Polymer Compounding Courses in their Continuing Education Program. He is a Fellow of ASTM International receiving the Award of Merit in 1990. In addition, he has represented the United States as a delegate to the ISO for the last 20 years. He was appointed in 1992 to be Leader of the U.S. Delegation to ISO TC-45 on Rubber. Mr. Dick teaches rubber technology courses at both University of Akron and University of Wisconsin continuing education departments. He received his B.S. degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 1970 and an M.A. from the University of Akron in 1979.

Influence of Compound Ingredients on Mould Fouling

Instructor: Dr. Hans-Joachim Graf

The course contents include: Organic Ingredients and Chemistry  causing Mold Fouling; Structure of Fillers and Plate out in Molding; Solubility of Ingredients and It Effect on Mold Fouling; End Groups of Polymers Regarding Mold Fouling; Process Conditions Supporting Mold Fouling; Checklist of Ingredients to Avoid Mold Fouling

Mould fouling is one of the primary causes of downtime and loss of productivity, due to the need to stop the production. During the mould cleaning operation there is also a risk for potential and permanent damage to occur to the mould. The type of mould metal usedhas a bearing on mould fouling but a much larger influence to mould fouling is contributed by the ingredients in the rubber compound. Some of the ingredients in contact with hot steel plate yield oxidative products. This results in the creation of a thin sticky layer that adheres both to the steel and the rubber surface. Plate-out and the like can cause mould fouling as well. A detailed description of the ingredients and process conditions involved as well as the mechanism behind mould fouling is discussed. We present a checklist at the end as to how to minimize, if not completely avoid, mould fouling. Briefly the course contents include: Organic Ingredients and Chemistry causing Mold Fouling; Structure of Fillers and Plate out in Molding; Solubility of Ingredients and It Effect on Mold Fouling; End Groups of Polymers Regarding Mold Fouling; Process Conditions Supporting Mold Fouling; Checklist of Ingredients to Avoid Mold Fouling.

About the Instructor

Hans-Joachim Graf has over thirty years’ experience in the rubber industry. He was first with manufacturing companies for pharmaceutical and technical rubber parts. He then joined DESMA a manufacturer of Rubber Injection molding and polyurethane shoe machines responsible for process development, followed by Rhein-Chemie as senior manager of material developments for rubber industry. After Cooper Standard Automotive (CAN), division of profile extrusion, as a director of materials he was with WOCO (GE), a manufacturer of injection molded parts in charge for material development and process design. Mr. Graf has authored over 60 publications and paper presentations and invented more than 15 patents. He has given a rubber technology course for graduates at University of Waterloo and is teaching courses in recipe design and industrial bonding at University of Hannover (GE) continuing education department. He is a member of the American Chemical Society, Deutsche ChemischeGesellchaft and Deutsche KautschukGesellschaft. He received his diploma degree from University of Mainz and his doctorate in polymer chemistry from University of Freiburg, both Germany. During DKT'12 (German Rubber Conference 2012) he was awarded with the Erich-Konrad Medal of the DKG (German Rubber Society). Currently, he is providing consulting and educational services for rubber industries around the world through TechnoBiz, the Rubber Industry Resource Center.
