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.
Creepy crawling cadavers – can ‘necrospiders’ help microelectronic production?
Whether you love them or hate them, spiders play an important role in our ecosystem by keeping the insect population down. Without spiders, it is believed that our crops, and therefore our food supply, could be put at risk from insects eating through them.
