Flexible CA Cyanoacrylates

Flexible CA (Cyanoacrylate) When I first heard that we had developed flexible CA I thought OK, sure we did.  I bet it is another one of those rubber toughened instant adhesives.  Toughened cyanoacrylates are considerably less brittle than standard cyanoacrylates but using the word flexible to describe them is a bit of a STRETCH.   I was pleasantly surprised to find o...

Adhesives for RFID Bonding

What is RFID Bonding? RFID Bonding refers to either the bonding of RFID tags to items or bonding the chip to the tag.  RFID = Radio frequency identification (usually in the form of RFID tags). These consist of a microchip and antenna which give off a frequency which can be detected by a reader. Use of RFID tags is now widespread, they can be found in bank cards, ski p...

4 benefits of using adhesives for sealing heat exchangers

Heat exchanger tubes and endplates are traditionally sealed by welding, brazing, or soldering. There are adhesives available which can be used for sealing heat exchangers in place of welding processes. Here are some major benefits of switching to adhesive sealing: 1. Cost savings Welding and brazing is a skilled occupation and generally commands a higher hourly rate tha...

Adhesives that withstand reflow soldering

In today’s world, electrical engineers are charged with the challenging task of precisely filling an already densely populated PCB with even more components.  Environmental regulations that have driven the industry to lead free technologies have added even more frustration to the mix. Solder temperatures increased from 183 deg C to 217 deg C with certain parts of the b...

Adhesive for silk screen mesh bonding

Silk screen mesh bonding can be carried out quickly and effectively with cyanoacrylate adhesive and if necessary, a cyanoacrylate activator. The process is simple and will have a screen print frame up and running again in a relatively short time compared with some other mesh bonding adhesives. Silk screen mesh is normally made of woven material such as polyester and th...
