LORD Corporation Scheduled to Present at Upcoming International Elastomer Conference
( 10/05/2017 )
(Cary, N.C. – Oct. 5, 2017) – LORD Corporation – a leader in the development of adhesives, coatings, motion management devices, and sensing technologies – will be sharing application engineering knowledge as a speaker at the upcoming International Elastomer Conference (IEC).
To be held Oct. 9-12 at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio, the show is an annual event held by the Rubber Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS), an international association of chemists, engineers, technicians, scientists, plant managers, sales and marketing professionals as well as others in the rubber, polymer or related fields within industry, academia and government.
Erin Chludzinski, Application Engineer, LORD Elastomer Adhesives & Coatings Technology Group, is scheduled to speak on Oct. 11 at 8 a.m. on the topic of “Application Engineering: Adding Value Beyond the Product.” Her presentation will showcase failure analysis of elastomer-to-substrate bonded components. Under the pressures of faster and leaner production, processing errors in the combination of many steps to create a final molded product may arise leading to new and complex failures. According to Chludzinski, analysis techniques such as digital imaging and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) create great insight into troubleshooting efforts; however, require significant capital investment. Discussion will include how an application engineering focused supplier can bring these tools to the table and add cost effective value to a process beyond the product.
Chludzinski’s role at LORD involves providing audits, operator training, new product introduction and troubleshooting. She obtained her B.S. in Chemical Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University and presents at various industry groups in the area.
LORD also will be showcasing plastic-to-metal adhesives, environmentally-preferred Chemlok®, LokRelease™ Mold Release agents for fast, easy part removal from molds and Chemlok® 206 Blue Primer.
