Key Testing and Simulation Workflows

Elastomers are infamous for difficult-to-predict behavior, but selecting a material and designing a rubber part for long term durability need not take you "into the weeds". Go straight to solutions that work with a disciplined approach that correctly considers rubbery material behaviors and realistic use and abuse load cases. Join us to learn about best-practice testing and simulation workflows that reliably lead to right-on-the-first-try product development programs.
