Improve Adhesives and Sealants with Nano-Additives – Selection, Formulation, and Processing

121 Day(s) left to register

Tuesday Nov 12, 2024

Maximize adhesives & sealants performance with nano-additives (CNT, Ti, Ag, Al2O3, Fe, Cu...) and steer clear of so-called disadvantages (dispersion, agglomeration, cost & availability factor).

Join expert Edward M Petrie in the simulated live to bring a drastic improvement in properties (E&T conductivity, mechanical, barrier, unique properties like peel strength…) of adhesives. Select nanomaterials, identify formulation and processing characteristics to minimize the product development cost with ease.

Bonus- Starting formulations which you are free to use!

Why should you attend?

The excellent physio-chemical properties and growing numbers of nanomaterials are expected to significantly increase the application scope of nanomaterial additives in adhesives and sealants. But shelf-life problems due to agglomeration of particles and application /delivery issues due to poor dispersion are constant troubles. If not addressed properly, you will end up with undesired properties resulting in wastage of materials & incur high cost. 

The lack of information on example formulations regarding specific properties adds to already existing issues. This game changing course will not only help you to overcome these hurdles but also to stay ahead of your competitors and develop new formulations that will meet specific end use requirements.

Reasons why this course must be in your list:

  • Better Select nano additives with an overview of the current portfolio available for adhesives and sealants.
  • Achieve specific end-use needs faster by clarifying the influence of nano-additive selection, formulation, and processing.
  • Eliminate or reduce the commonly perceived nano-additives' disadvantages (cost, availability, processing challenges) with ease.
  • Don’t fall behind in strategizing your adhesives & sealants formulation with nano-additives by reviewing the applications, markets, competitive activities.

    Good coverage of the different types of nanoparticles and their property improvements.

    Alisha Adams , from Appli-Tec

    Excellent content! It was good to understand and see the large options of nano-adhesives. I've learnt about the importance of a good formulation, that we need to confirm what is the optimal point.

    Anna Paula , from Furukawa Electric Latam

    Found what I was looking for. Gained formulatory advice and material selection tips.

    Chris Lansford , from TRI Austin

    Excellent technical level of course.
