Surface preparation for a better bond

Prior to bonding two components it’s essential that both surfaces are cleaned and prepared properly. This will ensure that potential contamination such as oil, grease, dirt etc cannot interfere with the bonding process. Failure to prepare the surfaces correctly may reduce the performance of the adhesive and could lead to bond failure. Bond line failure…

Electrically Conductive Adhesives

Electrically conductive adhesives have been around for many decades. In fact it was the advent of the American/Russian space race in the 1960’s that really propelled conductive adhesive technology to the forefront in electronic design.  At the time NASA was looking for an alternative system that would replace or reduce wiring, traditional electronic devices and…
