Thermally Conductive Potting Compound-Formulated for large potting applications

August 26, 2019

A major challenge for engineers is finding cost-effective Thermally Conductive Potting Compounds for medium to large potting applications. Many of the commercially available high performance products are not viable options due to the cost that they add to the electronic devices.  Also, most potting compounds create too much heat when curing in large mass sizes. […]

Low-Outgassing Epoxy Adhesives

April 8, 2019

Low outgassing Epoxy Adhesives and Epoxy Potting Compounds are sometimes required in aerospace, optical, and electro-optical applications.  NASA has set the standard for testing when it comes to outgassing requirements.  The two measurements that are used to screen materials are the Total Mass Loss (TML) and Collected Volatile Condensable Materials (CVCM) of the epoxy adhesive. The NASA […]

Fast Curing Toughened Epoxy Adhesive

February 5, 2019

Epoxy adhesives offer many advantages over traditional mechanical fasteners such as rivets, nuts and bolts, pins, or welding.  However, conventional two part epoxies that offer excellent bonds can be slow curing.  The new 10-3041 Toughened Epoxy Adhesive develops a 3,000 psi lap shear strength within four hours.  Within minutes the material is dry to the touch. Epoxy adhesives […]

Heat Sink Fin Bonding Epoxy Adhesive

January 16, 2019

70-3812NC provides amazing structural strength when bonding aluminum fins to aluminum base plates.  Many heat sink manufacturers are switching to this thermally conductive heat sink adhesive due to its 2,500 psi tensile lap shear strength (aluminum to aluminum).  The 70-3812NC Aluminum Filled Epoxy is the go-to material for heat sink bonding. In addition to providing strong […]
