Vincent Malave, a Southern West Coast Technical Salesperson for NuSil Technology, LLC. since 2001, spoke on how being fuel resistance, bio-compatibility, and able to remain elastomeric over a broad temperature range makes silicone an ideal material candidate for liquid injection molding applications.
This event raised approximately $7500.00 for SPE's education fund.

In an effort to continue the education process of their technical experts, PolyOne sent 6 people to M.R. Mold on Friday, February 11 to get “hands on” training. The day began by disassembling the barrel and nozzle from the molding machine. PolyOne techs cleaned the barrel and screw and watched the reassembly process and the steps involved in changing a pail kit on the pumping unit. The mold was heated and parts were produced. The cause for defective parts were looked at and discussed in depth in order to give PolyOne technicians the information they need to help customers troubleshoot their molding process.

Rick Finnie was instrumental in teaching a hands-on field trip for the Los Angeles Rubber Group, Inc. (TLARGI) annually held Basic Rubber Technology Course on Friday, January 28 (more information is available at TLARGI.org.). Rick Ziebell, Technical Manager at R.D. Abbott Company, Inc., is one of the instructors for this 20 week class. Students were introduced to injection molding in M.R. Mold’s Technology Center and a plant tour of M.R. Mold’s mold making facility. The objective of the evening’s event was to show the students each type of machine, giving them a better understanding of their purpose and answer questions in regards to LSR technology.
