Elastomeric Materials: Thermoset versus Thermoplastic

About this event

Elastomeric materials are widely used across a variety of industries. Their performance can vary greatly depending on whether they are thermoset or thermoplastic in nature. Thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) and thermoset rubbers can look and feel alike and may even behave similarly in the short term at room temperature. However, these two classes of materials offer very different properties as determined by their structure and composition. This webinar will cover the most important topics related to elastomeric materials, and through it the audience will gain a much better understanding of the performance and characteristics of elastomeric materials. This event is best suited for those that already have a comprehensive understanding of polymeric materials and their behavior.

At the conclusion of this webinar, you will understand:

  • The structural and compositional differences between thermoset rubber and TPEs.
  • How composition and structure determine the performance of elastomeric materials.
  • Determine whether an application is best suited for a TPE or a thermoset rubber.
