(Cary, N.C. – March 31, 2017) – LORD Corporation – a leader in developing and manufacturing high-performance adhesive products – has announced the date for their sixth annual International Rubber Journey 2017.

This event will be held May 3 and 4 at the Hotel Hacienda Jurica in Queretaro, Mexico. Free registration (http://internationalrubberjourney.com/en/registration.php) is available and more than 150 are expected to attend.

According to Scott Kearns, Chief Operating Officer, R.D. Abbott Company, the event is the premier rubber industry gathering in Mexico. “We believe the content is well planned and key for the development of the rubber business in Mexico,” he said.

The event will include:

  • tours of Bypasa and Pioneer;
  • training at LORD Corporation on topic of best practices for mold release;
  • an overview of the Queretaro Automotive Cluster;
  • training on contaminated parts, metal preparation, coating process, processability of silicon and fluorinated compounds, semi-permanent mold release for increased efficiency and low mold fouling;  
  • fabrication guide to improved processing and trouble-shooting;
  • workshops on failure analysis, how to avoid sweeping problems and cracks within the rubber molding process, as well as details on adhesive systems, liquid silicone and more.

The technical presentations are expected to be a big draw, said Jacob Hernández, Mexico Sales Manager, LORD Corporation. 

“I learned a lot from the event’s technical presentations last year and have had the opportunity to meet many new people with whom I have had new projects,” said Jim Hynds, Sales Engineer, TURBO SPRAY.

In addition to the technical activities, those customers currently using LORD Chemlok adhesives are invited to participate in a contest in which they register an improvement project that highlights advances related to quality, productivity and/or savings. Entries are due by April 14, and winners will be announced May 4. For more information, visit http://internationalrubberjourney.com/en/award.php

LORD also will be showcasing a new aqueous mold release product, LORD LokRelease™ 210, designed for use with molded elastomers including EPDM, natural rubber, nitrile and neoprene. The water-based mold release provides a nontransferable, noninterfering, anti-stick coating for fast and easy part removal from molds. Process enhancing capabilities include low build-up, allowing more production between mold cleaning; and improved efficiency in processes such as injection, compression and transfer molding. LORD LokRelease 210 aqueous mold release offers improved appearance by reducing defects caused by sticking, while its nontransferable properties eliminate post-finishing properties. This water-based coating also helps prevent rust and corrosion in steel molds.
