Toughened acrylic adhesive range is expanded

Permabond preview edit_tmbA range of thermally conductive adhesives, including a toughened acrylic adhesive for applications such as bonding heat sink fins to transformers, and a flexible epoxy hybrid will be demonstrated by Permabond at Northern Manufacturing 2017.

The company manufactures engineering adhesives for potting and encapsulation of electrical components, bonding heat sinks, magnets/ferrites to rotors and housings for electric motors, electrical transformers components, sealing transformer laminates, coating coils, wire tacking and attaching electronic dies.

Its adhesives have been formulated to maximise strength and impact resistance, as well as optimise thermal conductivity and withstand high temperatures and thermal shock. Many products pass the UL94-V-0 flame retardancy testing and comply with class H thermal resistance requirements. Non-corrosive formulations are available for sensitive electronics.

In addition to electronics and electric motor applications, adhesives are also provided for industries as diverse as composites, filters, medical devices, heat exchangers, lighting, aerospace, automotive, renewable energy and maintenance and repair.

The toughened acrylic range of adhesives has recently been expanded to include polyolefin bonders -TA4605 and TA4610 – for environmental resistance, and can be used under water; low odour – TA452 and TA4522 – providing low odour structural bonding with rapid strength development for workplaces where ventilation is difficult or staff are sensitive to smells; ultimate strength – TA4202 – a popular pink/green structural bonder, characterised by fast cure, high strength and structural performance; and TA4204 and TA4205 – crystal clear, non-yellowing structural adhesives for bonding clear plastics and other materials, where aesthetics are important.

Bring your components with you to the show, if possible, for the technical team to make the best adhesive recommendation.
