Encase your Electronic Devices Against Damage

Whether called potting, sealing, ruggedizing or encapsulation, electrical equipment and electronic devices have long benefited from being encased against damage and the elements. Early examples included very basic materials such as tar and meltable rosins, which gave way to hot melt thermoplastics, and eventually led to today’s collection of reactive thermosetting materials providing a colossal spectrum of properties to choose from. Full utilization of these high tech solutions is often …

Improving Assembly with Fastener and Component Enhancement Materials

The concept of using helical threaded fastening dates back many centuries. Nearly as old is the consequential search for a means of keeping these same fasteners secure until removal is required. Although this characteristic is seemingly the most desirable, any weekend mechanic knows the opposite is usually true: it only stays together when you need to take it apart. Fastener enhancement products traditionally comprised only the most basic of concepts, including cotter pins and deformed c…

Dry Film Lubricants Minimize Shedding of Particles and Vapors When Working with Highly Sensitive Devices
