Choosing an adhesive – get glued up!

Choosing an adhesive – get glued up!
According to NCH Europe, the majority of industrial adhesive jobs can be covered by three main adhesive categories - Cyanoacrylate adhesives, commonly known as super glues, structural adhesives or acrylics and anaerobic adhesives. These are all used to bond surfaces, known as substrates, together. However, these adhesives all have different properties, meaning that engineers must be able to accurately differentiate between them. Here are some tips.

Encapsulation resin protects underwater LED unit

Encapsulation resin protects underwater LED unit
Electrolube was recently approached by a company in Australia for assistance with a particularly unusual application. The customer needed protection for an underwater LED lighting unit. The encapsulation resin needed to be light blue for aesthetic purposes and had to be able to withstand water temperatures between 5 to 40°C, as well as being flame retardant.  The customer specifically asked for a sample of a very flexible encapsulation resin that could resist attack from constant immersion in pool water. Critically, this water could be salt water or fresh water.
