Preventing air voids in potting applications
Air voids can pose challenges in electronic assemblies, potentially compromising thermal conductivity, electrical insulation, and structural integrity.
Optically clear potting compounds
Potting and encapsulation are common methods used to protect electronic and LED assemblies from shock, vibration, and the environment.
The processability of adhesives
When specifying an adhesive, the primary consideration is functionality – will it act as an adhesive for the lifetime of the assembly? But it’s also important to consider how the material will work in production – its processability.

Diisocyanate in polyurethane adhesives
New legislation requiring training for the handling of materials containing diisocyanates, which is coming in on 24 August 2023, has brought attention to polyurethane adhesives (PUs).
Three worked examples of potting PCB assemblies
Potting PCB assemblies, which involves filling an enclosure with a liquid material to protect the board and its electrical components, is a common method to protect them.
New polyurethanes do not require REACH training
From 24 August 2023, the European Parliament’s REACH Restrictions will mean that industrial and professional users of products with a total monomeric diisocyanate concentration of greater than 0.1% must be trained and certified in handling diisocyanates.
Learning and development in the adhesives industry
Though it may initially seem like a simple task, adhesive bonding may be a vital and challenging part of your product design.
Intertronics busts dispensing robot myths
The benefits of robotics are compelling: improved productivity, efficiency, output, quality, and flexibility. In addition to their production benefits, they can improve health and safety and job satisfaction for employees.
Intertronics appoints Head of Learning and Development

Intertronics busts cyanoacrylate adhesive myths
Cyanoacrylate adhesives (CAs), also known as superglues, are unique in that they are the only fast curing adhesive that is single component and can cure in ambient conditions with no external energy source.
Accurately 3D printing bioelectronic sensors
When the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering (ACSE) at The University of Sheffield was looking for a way to accurately 3D print bioelectronic sensors, it reached out to Intertronics for support.
Adhesive considerations at the design stage
Adhesives are often treated as the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle. But by the end of the design stage, it may be difficult to find an adhesive that meets all the criteria, meaning the design must be amended, or even started again. Here Simon Gibbs, Technical Sales Executive at adhesives specialist Intertronics, explains the benefits of considering adhesives early in a project.
