The second part of the Rubber Materials e-Learning extends the existing course with more important information on elastomers to aid engineers and students.The complete rubber materials e-Learning educates users on types of elastomers and the critical properties that lead to their success in sealing applications. Guidance and information are given on the impact of temperature, chemical compatibility, and common seal failure with root causes. Finally, a variety of elastomeric seal types are introduced to help choose the correct seal for your application.
By the end of the module you should be able to:
- Differentiate between common elastomer materials, including benefits and constraints enabling you to choose the correct material for your application.
- Understand the most common mistakes when selecting sealing materials for use with system fluids.
- Identify common seal failure modes, find the root cause and suggest appropriate solutions to remedy the problem.
As with the other Trelleborg Sealing Solutions e-Learning modules, a short quiz at the end will test your newly gained knowledge, with a printable certificate to celebrate your success.
All of our e-Learning modules are available free-of-charge from the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions website.
