Amongst our most popular and widely used adhesives are the following:
Can be used on most materials but particularly effective on plastics and metals. Relatively quick curing and with high levels of toughness and strength, acrylics are more flexible than common epoxy adhesive. They require little surface preparation and they bond very well to huge range of different materials. Acrylics perform even better when an initiator is applied to one surface and curing time can be improved when heat is applied.
Like acrylics, epoxies are effective with most materials but particularly effective with metals and plastics. They're also available in many different forms, including solid pastes, low-viscosity liquids and films. Epoxy adhesives are known for good chemical resistance and strength, They don't produce volatiles whilst curing, and have particularly low shrinkage. Because of the nature of their chemistry and the reaction during curing, formulation can vary widely as there are many options when it comes to resins and hardeners.
Adhesives films: We have a wide range of adhesive films, including Henkel adhesive films, which can be found in just about every market where electronics are assembled, including automotive electronics, aerospace and defence electronics, industrial and consumer electronics, computing and handheld communications, green energy, LED lighting, medicine, radio frequency identification and wireless datacom infrastructure. Our enormously varied adhesive film and sealant portfolio is able to address all of the modern world's most exacting applications. The Henkel range of conductive adhesive films comes in a range of thicknesses, strengths, heat conductivity ratings and cure cycle times.
Plastic Adhesives: The bonding of plastics parts can be a big problem in many assembly operations. Sil-Mid has a comprehensive line of adhesives created to bond plastics to other plastics as well as to rubbers, metals, glass, ceramics, and so on. Various different systems are used depending on what kind of performance is required. Processes may favour impact resistance, electrical insulation, thermal shock resistance, high bonding strength or dimensional stability.
