The global economy is still suffering, businesses and organisations are under pressure to reduce costs. Eurobond Adhesives Ltd are helping one UK company to significantly reduce the costs of live firing exercises for Armies and Security Forces around the world. This specialist company manufacture combat laser weapon systems for Armies and Security Forces. The high cost of using blank or live ammunition for training exercises has been dramatically cut by the use of weapons that fire laser beams up to 2km. The weapons make the same sound and produce a recoil action similar to a real rifle. Each soldier wears a set of optical sensors on their helmet and chest webbing, which detects if the soldier has been hit by a laser. The current method of manufacturing these optical sensors was taking too long and was too expensive. And so Eurobond’s technical team were called in to help evaluate the process and recommend a fast curing potting compound which could be used to encapsulate the PCB and optical sensors, protecting them from the environment. Tests were carried out and Eurobond’s FastFix® 2-part, fast curing potting compound was selected.
Eurobond FASTFIX® adhesive potting compound has superb adhesion to FR4, polycarbonate and many other plastics and metals. It gels in just 15 minutes, cures to a solid state in just 25 minutes and full cure in 2 hours. FastFix® has increased their production process by 800%. Eurobond FastFix is available in 50ml cartridges and comes complete with a mixer nozzle. 1:1 ratio applicator guns are sold separately.
