Momentive Performance Materials hosted a 2-day event, in Waterford New York, for their distributors called the College of Knowledge that took place on October 17th & 18th 2017.

The event consisted of in-class technical product training as well as hands on work in the lab. Momentive’s goal was to provide their distribution network with product training that can take day-to-day sales beyond transactional selling. We learned about different uses and customer applications for Momentive’s products, and worked as a team to enhance our knowledge of this specific product line. The team at Momentive provided excellent insights and information on their products, and were most helpful to all the teams present.

Awards were given at the end of the seminar, and our technical sales representative; Luka Sovulj was awarded the trophy for “Most Technical Acumen” and the MG Chemicals team as a whole were technically sound.

Once again, we will be exhibiting at Productronica 2017, the only trade fair that depicts the entire value chain in electronics manufacturing, in Messe München, Germany.
Our team of industry professionals will be on site to meet with you and discuss your needs and challenges in your daily activities, and how we can contribute to your success with our advanced solutions and dedicated technical support.
Don’t miss this opportunity to discover our new Epoxy Encapsulating and Potting Compounds, Solder Wire and Paste, One-Part Epoxy products and more, or to refresh your memory on our entire product offerings. 
We look forward to seeing you in Hall A4, Stand 114 on November 14-17, 2017.

Mg Chemicals is proud to announce the addition of the WSC4029 Weatherstrip coating to its extensive line of Momentive Performance Materials. This three component matt black water based silicone coating system is used in numerous automotive applications by helping impart a high level of mar and abrasion resistance and reduce friction related noise due to vibration of body parts such as doors. It thermally cures to form a resilient silicone film and can help provide substrate surfaces such as EPDM rubber with lubricating water repellent and easy release characteristics. WSC4029 coating system comprises a black base emulsion (WSC4029AC or WSC4029AC+ with better foam control properties), a cross linker (WSC4029B) and a catalyst (WSC4029D).

RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) is a piece of legislation created by the EU to reduce the harmful effects of substances found in electrical and electronic products, and improves the welfare of consumers, distributors, manufacturers, and the environment.

Since the early 20th century, chemicals have been introduced into manufacturing and the harmful effects of such chemicals has not been widely understood. In response to such problem, the EU has been introducing legislation to try to reduce the use of harmful substances. On January 27th, 2003, the European Union created the RoHS directive 2002/95/EC, which prevents the use of harmful substances in products.

In the article linked below, you can find out what RoHS entails.
