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.
Manufacturers of wearables and other medical devices can find suitable solutions among a number of medically safe adhesive systems, which are available in a wide variety of chemistries including epoxies, silicones and UV/LED-curable compounds.
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.
Advanced power and high frequency communications electronics have become more sophisticated. Fabricating and assembling these devices involves carefully selecting the proper adhesives, die attach compounds, glob-top encapsulants, underfills and potting compounds. Engineers must be familiar with how these systems can affect design so that they meet and exceed performance objectives.
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.
Forming reliable bonds between different materials can be challenging because there can be large variations in CTE's (coefficients of thermal expansion). Adhesive compounds play a critical role in the fabrication of assemblies for electronic, optical and mechanical systems.
