Flame Retardant Epoxies and Silicones Meet Critical Safety Requirements
Designed to mitigate the worst effects of fires, fire retardant materials play a particularly important role in aircraft construction. Used in aircraft, epoxies and silicones must maintain their primary role as adhesives or coatings while exhibiting resistance to heat and flame in accordance with government and industry specifications. Master Bond’s series of flame retardant epoxies and silicones comply with specifications for flame resistance and reduction of smoke density and toxic emissions.
Die Attach Adhesives Impact Product Quality Well Beyond Manufacturing
Die attach adhesives serve a vital role in semi-conductor assembly, manufacturing and throughout the product life cycle. In this white paper, learn how they facilitate assembly and about the application process. Find out why thin bond lines are so important for product life cycle. Bond strength is only one, albeit critical requirement for many applications; read about many other performance characteristics of epoxies and why they offer diverse solutions to meet critical application needs.
Epoxies Safeguard Medical Electronic Devices
The combination of increasingly complex assemblies and exacting quality requirements is compelling design engineers to be extremely diligent when selecting materials for the assembly of medical electronic devices. In this white paper, we explore various polymer chemistries and what the different families of compounds have to offer for performance and processing requirements.
Case Study - UV15: For Fabrication of Polymer Optical Waveguides
With its outstanding light transmission properties and optical clarity, Master Bond UV15 is widely used for a variety of bonding, coating and sealing applications in the optical, electronic and optoelectronic industries. In fact, it has been effectively used by RMIT University, the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Twente to create polymer optical waveguides. UV15 is often selected for this type of application since it adheres well to silicon, which is often used as a substrate for waveguide fabrication. This one part, low viscosity system is also easily spin-coated producing uniform films with thicknesses used in waveguides.
Innovative Medical Adhesives Simplify and Improve Fastening in Medical Devices
Modern adhesives offer medical device engineers a leg up with new options to simplify fastening and improve performance as medical devices and materials continue to advance. When faced with often hostile environments of human bodies and hospitals, modern, well-designed structural medical adhesive compounds can be used safely for disposable and reusable medical devices. Master Bond’s white paper explores the advantages of various adhesive chemistries, their properties and features.
