Superior adhesive performance discovered in plasma surface treatment

Superior adhesive performance discovered in plasma surface treatment
In recent work conducted by engineers at Intertronics’ partners Relyon Plasma, it has been demonstrated that the substantial increases in bond strength achievable with the use of plasma surface treatment, can improve adhesion on many substrates, including those which are seen as difficult to bond. Plasma surface treatment can enable otherwise impractical bonds and improve assembly performance, while saving time and money in the concept-to-market cycle.

The answer to upcoming aerosol restrictions

The answer to upcoming aerosol restrictions
Have no fear the Techspray Vortex 360° is here, which is the answer for companies facing the restriction on technical aerosols using HFCs with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) greater than 15, which comes into effect on 1st January 2018. The EU F-Gas Regulation (517/2014) controls the use and emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases, and will prevent many of the currently used aerosol dusters from being put on the market after that date.

Low viscosity conformal coating cures with light

Low viscosity conformal coating cures with light
Dymax 9452-FC from Intertronics is an electronics conformal coating formulated with a new technology as an alternative to thin, solvent-based conformal coatings. Whilst it has a very low viscosity – 20 cP – it still provides good electrical insulation and protection against humidity, plus what the company describes as very good thermal shock and corrosion resistance.

Surface activation Intertronics style

Surface activation Intertronics style
A new development, the Relyon Plasma Piezobrush PZ2 from Intertronics, has nozzle attachment options for surface activation across a wide range of applications for better adhesion on surfaces that can be difficult to bond, print on, coat or laminate. Treatment of metals and smaller and more precise applications are now possible by choice of a suitable nozzle, while the use of a variety of special gases also enhance the possibilities of PDD (Piezoelectric Direct Discharge) on challenging substrates.

Precision facilitates miniaturisation

The preeflow eco-DUO330 from Intertronics helps to meet the need for smaller, more precise and ever more repeatable metering, mixing and dispensing units for two-part materials. It also helps to improve micro-dosing for two component systems and can provide dosages as small as 0.2 to 32ml/min with complete repeatability. This is expected to be of value in the fields of medical device manufacturing, optics, photonics, electronics assembly, biochemistry and semi-conductors, where the ability to meter and mix small volumes will be key.

Black opaque conformal coating enhances PCB security

Black opaque conformal coating enhances PCB security
The Dymax Multi-Cure 9451 is a true black and opaque conformal coating from Intertronics that enhances security of electronic products by covering the printed circuit board and components, hiding them from visual inspection. This is an effective barrier to loss of confidentiality and possible copying or reverse engineering of proprietary designs, in addition to its ability to improve circuit reliability in harsh conditions.

UV post-cure benefits 3D SLA polymer printing technology

UV post-cure benefits 3D SLA polymer printing technology
According to Intertronics, recent developments in 3D printing technology have popularised the SLA (stereolithography) technology of laser printing in a bath of UV curable photopolymer resin. This process effectively “grows” a component in the bath so that as it is withdrawn, each successive layer is laser light cured.
