Zeon Chemicals (Louisville, KY) has enhanced its low-temperature hydrogenated nitrile rubber (HNBR) to meet the needs of oil, energy, automotive, aerospace, and industrial environments. Zetpol 4310 HNBR provides low-temperature performance, mechanical properties, and improved processability, while also yielding high-temperature resistance not previously attainable with these materials. Compared to earlier-generation HNBRs, Zetpol 4310 has better processability, improved low-temperature tensile strength, reduced compression set, and improved retention of properties after aging.

In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
