What are the challenges facing applications that operate at cryogenic temperatures? What effect do these low temperatures have on efforts to bond, seal, coat or encapsulate these applications? In this paper, learn how specialized adhesives meet the performance requirements necessary to maintain the physical, thermal and electrical properties as temperatures approaching absolute zero.
The combination of increasingly complex assemblies and exacting quality requirements is compelling design engineers to be extremely diligent when selecting materials for the assembly of medical electronic devices.In this white paper, we explore various polymer chemistries and what the different families of compounds have to offer for performance and processing requirements.
As technology in the optics industry continues to advance and improve, careful consideration of the properties of epoxies must be evaluated. When determining the most effective adhesive to be used in opto-electronics, medical and other optic related industry applications, trade-offs of key characteristics should be assessed.
Selecting the right adhesive is a balancing act as engineers attempt to find products that meet conflicting end-use and manufacturability requirements. Medical device engineers also have to contend with a strict regulatory environment, and therefore often have the toughest time striking that balance.
Designed to mitigate the worst effects of fires, fire retardant materials play a particularly important role in aircraft construction. Used in aircraft, epoxies and silicones must maintain their primary role as adhesives or coatings while exhibiting resistance to heat and flame in accordance with government and industry specifications.
The assembly applications for medical device manufacturers typically come with their own distinctive set of rigorous requirements. This white paper takes a closer look at one and two part silicone medical adhesives.
