Webinar first ran: June 2013

Overview

Rubber components are all too often treated as commodity items that can be overlooked until they fail, with disastrous results. It is critical that designers and engineers understand what can cause these materials to fail, the likelihood of failure and the limitations in their properties.

In this webinar consultant Gary Crutchley covers material selection, specification, product design, processing technology and the service related situations that may apply and must be considered at the earliest stages of product development.

The discussion focuses on:

  • Future product failure and associated costs
  • Loss of reputation and expensive litigation costs
