This post has been designed to provide insight as to the trends and economic shifts when it comes to the general category of adhesives and mechanical fastening technology for industrial applications.
Some of the innovations that emerged out of World War II are well-documented, ranging from the microwave to the photo copier. But there's one small tool whose WW2 heritage is lesser-known. Today we know this powerful product as Super Glue.
Topics: Instant Adhesives
Selecting the right industrial adhesive for your business needs is vital to ensure that you are able to deliver your products on time, at the right price and in compliance with your quality standards.
As modern adhesive technologies advance, manufacturers are progressively interested in understanding the use of adhesives in product assembly applications and what benefits are offered over mechanical assembly methods such as welding, rivets and threaded fasteners. This post will help you gain a better understanding of how cyanoacrylates work and why they are a good choice as it relates to alternative fastening techniques.
The adhesive you specify for your component assemblies is critical to ensuring the end product is of the highest quality. Many engineering and purchasing authorities underestimate the importance of this selection because it seems to be such a small part of the overall process. But remember that although it is a small part of the assembly process, it is the “glue” that literally and figuratively holds your product together.
Cyanoacrylate adhesives (also known as CA glue) are extremely versatile and offer many benefits over an extensive range of assembly applications and manufacturing industries. Their success is based on their fast curing rate, ease of adhesion on a wide variety of materials and outstanding mechanical strength using only a small amount of adhesive.
This blog post is intended to provide our readers a greater understanding of the advantages of using instant adhesives in their manufacturing process (assuming of course that the application fits the technology). We will discuss the key advantages in terms of application consideration and overall performance benefits.
