Dielectric constant, dissipation factor, dielectric strength, surface and volume resistivity are all fundamental electrical properties of epoxies. How they are measured, what values are desirable and how they react to changes in temperature, fillers and other variables are considered in this paper.

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.

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.

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.

Sterilization plays a major role in the use of both reusable and disposable medical devices. Download this white paper to learn about the different types of sterilization methods and their effects on materials used in medical devices. Also included is The Spaulding Classification System and recommended processes for various medical devices.

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.
