Bostik launches new range of engineering adhesives
The range of engineering adhesives includes new, low-odor formulations, which enable a more comfortable manufacturing environment, and low-blooming solutions. Blooming is the effect of adhesive being squeezed out between parts being assembled and causing staining.
1K gap filler for optimised heat management
With the new TCTP series, MTC Micro Tech Components has presented a silicone-free, thermally conductive one-component gap filler based on acrylic for for optimised heat management. The dispensable paste offers a very high thermal conductivity and can be used in applications where the use of silicone is critical. For example, at car manufacturers it is imperative to avoid silicone, because of outgassing issues, until the end of painting plant.&nbs...

Dispensing: what is meant by accuracy and repeatability?
A number of the products that we offer are described as being highly accurate, precise and/or repeatable. We believe that these criteria are important to a process where consistent, high quality output is required, and they have a big impact on productivity through reduction of material waste, quality-based rejects, and rework. But what exactly do we mean when we say ‘accurate’, ‘precise’ and ‘repeatable’? ...
