Adhesives offer many benefits over mechanical and thermal methods of assembly. 

Adhesives distribute load evenly over a broad area, reducing stress on a joint. Adhesives are applied inside the joint and are nearly invisible within the assembly. They resist flex and vibrational stresses, and will form a seal as well as a bond to protect joints from corrosion. They join irregularly shaped surfaces more easily than fastening or welding. They add minimal weight to an assembly, create virtually no change in part dimensions or geometry, and can join dissimilar substrates and heat-sensitive materials.

Whether you need a UV-cure adhesive to assemble a medical device or a two-part epoxy to encapsulate electronics, you’ll find it at The ASSEMBLY Show South. Here’s a look at some of what you’ll see.

Fusionbond 370 two-component structural adhesive

Fusionbond 370 is a two-component methacrylate adhesive specially formulated for structural bonding of thermoplastics, metal, wood and composite assemblies. It is an excellent choice for composite bonding applications in the marine, automotive and construction industries, because it requires virtually no surface preparation. It provides superior toughness at temperatures from -67 to 250 F. Supplied in a dual-cartridge syringe, the adhesive has a 1-to-1 mix ratio. It is resistant to fatigue, impacts and salt spray, and it has good gap-filling ability.

Vitralit BL UC series UV-curing, epoxy resin adhesives

Vitralit BL UC 1101, 1102 and 1103 are UV-curing, black epoxy resin adhesives. The adhesives can be cured in layers 1 millimeter thick or more using only UV light, eliminating the need for a secondary curing mechanism. Unlike conventional single-component epoxies, which must be kept cold or frozen, Vitralit adhesives are shipped and stored at room temperature. 

The adhesives are suitable for component encapsulation, glob top, or edge bonding in electronics production. They can also be used as optical adhesives in applications requiring high optical density values. 

Vitralit BL UC 1101 is perfect if a thick layer of adhesive is needed. It cures reliably in thick layers up to 1.3 millimeter, resulting in an optical density of up to 3.9. If a high optical density in lower layer thickness is needed, Vitralit BL UC 1103, with OD values of up to 6, is the best option. In optoelectronic component assembly, Vitralit BL UC adhesives minimize reflections and can safeguard the sensitive transmission values required for automotive sensors. All three adhesives have high glass transition temperatures, low shrinkage, and low coefficient of thermal expansion.

PrecisionCoat VI Automated Coating and Dispensing System

The PrecisionCoat VI selective conformal coating and dispensing system is fully programmable. Available in multiple configurations, this flexible system can apply acrylics, silicones, epoxies, urethanes, latex and other materials onto complex assemblies. The Automatic Quick Change (AQC) feature allows the use of eight separate tools within a single machine. Manufacturers can individually position valves or heads with different materials and functions. This allows manufacturers to automate application of multiple materials within a single coating profile. Numerous head options are available, including spray valves, dispense valves, UV spot curing lamps, jetting valves and micro spray valves.

AA-210-3 two-component epoxy system

AA-210-3 two-component epoxy system has passed extensive smoke and toxicity testing. By passing ASTM E-662-15a smoke density tests and Boeing specification support standard BSS 7239 Rev: A1-18-88, the epoxy is a good choice for bonding, sealing, coating and potting in the light rail industry. This insulating epoxy is designed to encapsulate sensitive electronic components and transformers. It has excellent noise reduction and vibration characteristics. The epoxy is flexible after curing, yet still exhibits excellent electric properties and low weight loss at operating temperatures exceeding 180 C. Heat will accelerate the curing process and provide the best physical properties.
