Coating solution for hearing aids with PFOA regulations
P2i has announced that is launching a new solution for hearing aids. The new coating solution, which will be deployed on a new machine introduced by P2i, is compliant with EU 2020/784 amendment to EU 2019/1021.
MicroCare presents its green vapour degreasing cleaners
MicroCare, will be presenting its range of ‘greener’ cleaning products at the online virtual SMTA International event from September 28th to 30th 2020. At this online event, the team will introduce visitors to innovative vapour degreasing chemistries which help improve the manufacturing process of electronic devices.
Heat dissipation solution with the WE-TGF from Würth
With its WE-TGF (Thermal Gap Filler) Würth Elektronik has announced that it now offers a new solution for heat dissipation. The key feature of the self-adhesive gap-filler material is the non-conductive barrier with a high dielectric strength has a high thermoconductivity index of 1 W/(m*K).
WEG develops anti-viral coating to protect against COVID-19
Industrial equipment manufacturer, WEG has developed a new anti-viral coating from its WEG Coatings and Varnishes Unit in Brazil. Developed for use on professional machinery and equipment used in hospitals, laboratories and medical settings, the new coating reportedly makes 99.9% of coronavirus inactive within minutes of contact with the surface.
Precise dispensing of anaerobic adhesives
Anaerobic adhesives are the most popular type in industry, and are ubiquitous in workshops everywhere, used as threadlockers and retaining compounds. Applications for anaerobic adhesives that require more accuracy and precision in dispensing can be challenging because of the unique cure mechanism. Here Peter Swanson, Managing Director at Intertronics, has presented evidence for the use of preeflow dispensers for anaerobic adhesives.
Fast-dry water-based micro corrosion inhibiting coating
Cortec has continued to develop environmentally responsible corrosion solutions, including its line of water-based VpCI micro corrosion inhibiting coatings. Cortec’s water-based varieties minimise worker exposure to solvent fumes and typically reduce the amount of VOCs released to the atmosphere.
New Electrolube products for battery thermal management
Electrolube has developed key thermal management and encapsulation resin products for battery protection including the thermal gap filler - GF400, non-silicone heat transfer compound HTCPX, - thermally conductive epoxy potting compound - ER2221, and soft polyurethane resin - UR5044.
ZESTRON Bath Analyzer for concentration measurement
In order to achieve good cleaning results consistently, the cleaner concentration in the cleaning bath should remain constant. The concentration can change through various process factors like carry-over or thinning. It is therefore advisable to check the concentration over time. A simple method for regular concentration checks is the ZESTRON Bath Analyzer.
VICTREX AM PEAK filament for additive manufacturing
Victrex has launched VICTREX AM PEAK filament. The new offering has been specifically developed and optimised for additive manufacturing. The PEEK incumbent materials on the market today, although used in some AM applications, were designed for conventional manufacturing methods, such as machining and injection moulding.
Spray-on clear coatings for cheaper smart windows
A simple method for making clear coatings that can block heat and conduct electricity could radically cut the cost of energy-saving smart windows and heat-repelling glass. The spray-on clear coatings developed by researchers at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, are ultra-thin, cost-effective and rival the performance of current industry standards for transparent electrodes.
