 solvents and move towards aqueous based adhesive systems. A number of companies in the rubber industry have joined the project, including Lord, Chemicals Group of Erie, PA, Dunlop Oil Marine and Hutchinson/paulstra. The project will establish a new accelerated aging methodology based on environmental exposures with a realistic mechanical loading.
