  • Medical Device Link . Fundamentals of Structural Adhesives for Device Assembly Selecting the proper adhesive and curing process can be crucial to developing safe and effective devices.
    individually. A summary of bonding processes and the trade-offs associated with each are shown below. Table I. Summary of trade-offs for common joining methods and structural adhesive curing processes. Generally, two-part adhesive systems are made up of a base polymer resin and a catalyst. When
  • Medical Device Link . Adhesive Bonding of Medical Plastics: An Overview
    and the adhesives best suited to bond them. For many of the plastics evaluated, the effect of polymer composition on bond strength was evaluated by compounding plastic formulations with each of the most commonly used additives and fillers for that plastic; common grades were used for the remaining
  • Foaming Soy Adhesives Could Help Soybeans Bond With Lumber Industry
    , " says ARS research associate Milagros Hojilla-Evangelista, who's in the Plant Polymer Research Unit in Peoria. Extenders are substances added to an adhesive to reduce the amount of resin required. The plywood glues were designed to be
  • Preventing Adhesive Resin Bleed in Microelectronics Assembly through Gas Plasma Technology (.pdf)
    Screen print patterning is an attractive alternative to traditional semiconductor photo-lithography. Our work compared the pattern resolution and mechanical resistance of screen-printed polymers versus spin-on methods. Optical microscopy of screen-printed coatings reveal sharp edge features as well
  • Aminos
    of a catalyst converts the materials into strong, hard products. Aminos are used as molding compounds, laminating resins, wood adhesives, coatings, wet-strength paper resins, and textile-treating resins. The base resin used in urea and melamine

    between linear polymer molecules ( is another term commonly used). As a result of this process, thermosets become infusible and insoluble. Thermosetting resins (e.g., epoxies, polyesters, and phenolics) are the basis of many structural adhesives for load-bearing medical applications, as well
  • Medical Device Link .
    Thermally conductive plastic enhances performance of heat-measuring devices. A liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) developed by Cool Polymers (Warwick, RI; 603/863-5005) has been used to mold a part for a device measuring heat flow. The LCP provides a thermal conductivity of 50 W/mK. Cool Polymers
  • Epoxy
    Epoxy polymers are cured to form thermoset resins by either homopolymerization of epoxy groups with themselves, or reaction with curing agents such as anhydrides, amines, and novolacs. Because the curing agent contributes significantly to the cured properties of the resin, this is called
