Stopoffs and masking compounds are used to prevent coatings, braze, solder, adhesive or paint from sticking to a region of a part such as threaded areas, seal surfaces or areas not part of the joint or not requiring environmental protection.
Abrasive compounds and abrasive slurries are used to improve surface finish or flatness. They often consist of fine abrasives in slurry, bar, powder or paste forms.
Hermetic seals provide a vacuum or leak tight seal such as a brazed glass-to-metal seal.

Welding machines and joining machines include all manner of devices used for welding, brazing and soldering.
Polystyrene is a synthetic aromatic polymer that can be rigid, foamed, or an integral part of a copolymer. Copolymers includes systems such as high impact polystyrene (HIPS) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), which have wide use due to their improved impact resistance.
Surface mount technology (SMT) manufacturing equipment is used to populate printed circuit boards (PCB). This includes soldering machines, ovens, component placement, paste depositors and screen and stencils.

Industrial Inks

(342 companies)
Industrial inks are liquids, powders or transfer tapes printed, sprayed, rolled or transferred onto substrates or media to create markings, patterns, print or graphics.
Polymers and plastic materials are organic, synthetic or processed polymers that are supplied as raw materials. They typically consist of thermoplastic or thermosetting resins in the form of pellets, powders or liquid resins. These materials can then be molded into a variety of shapes for a wide range of uses.
