Achieving good adhesion not only depends on selecting the right adhesive, but also on implementing the best surface preparation techniques. Regardless of the substrate, proper surface preparation always plays an essential role in achieving strong bonds. This white paper explores the various techniques including degreasing, abrasion, chemical treatments and physical methods.
Engineers often want to know whether an adhesive is low outgassing or generic. And while there are cases when nothing but a low outgassing product will do, the truth is that many so-called generic adhesives inherently have low outgassing levels. What's more, most bonding, potting, encapsulation and sealing applications don't need to meet a defined outgassing specification.
Gain a better understanding about glass transition temperature (Tg) and why it is one of many factors to consider for bonding, sealing, coating and encapsulation applications. In this paper, we explore how temperature impacts the performance of polymers, why glass transition temperature is significant, and how it is measured.
This article provides an overview of the oil and gas industry, from the extraction to its processing, and how epoxies play a vital role in the equipment and devices used in these pursuits. Properties exhibited by epoxy adhesives stand up to the hostile environments encountered in all aspects of the oil and gas industry — upstream, midstream and downstream.
To understand one part epoxy systems, you need to know how a two part system works. In this white paper, we explore how a one part system is constructed, how it can and should be used, and how it can be modified to achieve a variety of performance properties. Also learn how technological advances have resulted in innovative, unique systems.
Potting compounds offer superior protection for electronic circuits potting and encapsulation compounds are designed to completely enclose a component, module or PCB. This effectively shields the unit from its surroundings while providing structural support and imparting the highest protection from external conditions.
