Additives Short Course

ASC Stand Alone Short Course | September 28 - 30, 2020
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Adhesives are formulated to perform in very diverse market applications with highly specified performance characteristics. Whether one is developing an aerospace formulation or removable tape adhesive, the selection of polymer has the greatest influence on properties. The formulated "package" incorporates additives to build on the polymer properties to optimize performance targets within the considerations of bonding conditions and application constraints. The ability to efficiently develop, screen, tune and troubleshoot formulated products starts with an understanding of the role that each component plays in the formulation, and is enhanced through experience, and best practices.

This 2-day short course will cover 8+ common additives used in formulating adhesives across all technology types. After an introduction to polymer structure/ property relationships, each additive session will introduce the additive, provide base formulations for appropriate technology types, testing and processing and performance characteristics within market applications.

Our diverse experts presenting at the short course have years of experience in condensing formulating art to knowledge, and will share starting formulations, benefits and limitations, fine tuning approaches for developing robust products with stable, targeted performance.
