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.

Potting compounds offer superior protection for electronic circuits while 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.

Remarkable silicones. The combination of their unique ability to maintain physical properties across a wide range of temperature, humidity, and frequency--combined with their flexibility--set them apart. Silicone based adhesives, sealants, potting and encapsulation compounds are used in hundreds of consumer, business, medical, and military electronic systems.

The use and selection process of thermally conductive epoxies can make or break your application. Too much heat can lead to component malfunction or premature component failure while the inability to stay below specified temperature limits may result in irreversible damage and permanent performance shifts.
