It also requires that the best surface preparation techniques be used. In this context, &ldquo;surface&rdquo; refers to the area and depth where the adhesive interacts with the substrate. The affinity of the adhesive with this surface ultimately determines bond strength. Whether bonding metals, plastics, or rubbers, proper surface preparation always plays an essential role in getting the best bond.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/proper-surface-prep-adhesive-s-best-friend" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/proper-surface-prep-adhesive-s-best-friend#comments Adhesives Tue, 03 Feb 2015 17:06:00 +0000 45931 at http://machinedesign.com Instant Adhesive Is Suited for Outdoor Environments http://machinedesign.com/products/instant-adhesive-suited-outdoor-environments <div class="field-byline"> Staff </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Henkel’s Loctite 4090 is an instant adhesive which is impact resistance and suited for outdoor environments.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/products/instant-adhesive-suited-outdoor-environments" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/products/instant-adhesive-suited-outdoor-environments#comments Products Adhesives Thu, 15 Jan 2015 16:00:00 +0000 45521 at http://machinedesign.com One-Part Epoxies are Versatile and Convenient http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/one-part-epoxies-are-versatile-and-convenient <div class="field-byline"> Robert Michaels </div> <div class="field-deck"> Single-component epoxies can do almost anything two-part ones can, but without the extra processing and waste. </div> <div class="node-body article-body">One-part epoxies are ready for bonding, potting, encapsulating, sealing, and coating.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/one-part-epoxies-are-versatile-and-convenient" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/one-part-epoxies-are-versatile-and-convenient#comments Adhesives Thu, 20 Nov 2014 16:20:00 +0000 44771 at http://machinedesign.com One Part Cyanoacrylate Sets in 10-40 Seconds http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/one-part-cyanoacrylate-sets-10-40-seconds <div class="field-byline"> Staff </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Master Bond’s MB250NT is a single component ethyl cyanoacrylate cures rapidly, depending on the atmospheric humidity (the higher the level, the faster the rate of the cure). </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/one-part-cyanoacrylate-sets-10-40-seconds" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/one-part-cyanoacrylate-sets-10-40-seconds#comments Products Adhesives Wed, 22 Oct 2014 15:41:00 +0000 41621 at http://machinedesign.com Epoxies and Glass Transition Temperature http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/epoxies-and-glass-transition-temperature <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Master Bond </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Gain a better understanding about glass transition temperature (Tg) and why it is one of many factors to consider for bonding, sealing, coating and encapsulation</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/epoxies-and-glass-transition-temperature" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/epoxies-and-glass-transition-temperature#comments Adhesives White Papers Fri, 09 May 2014 15:27:00 +0000 37441 at http://machinedesign.com Thermally Conductive Adhesives Keep Things Cool http://machinedesign.com/adhesives/thermally-conductive-adhesives-keep-things-cool <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Master Bond </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Through heat dissipation, thermally conductive adhesives and potting compounds play a pivotal role in the protection of today’s electronic circuitry.
