The monthly roundup from Editor Teresa McPherson.
This month’s issue brings a wealth of information on
processing equipment, packaging and materials handling. “Applying Adhesives in
the Vacuum-Infusion Process” examines how resin-based spray adhesives offer
higher quality and reduced liability in vacuum-infusion processes. “Diversify
or Conquer” explains how Diversified Chemical Technologies Inc. was able to
increase efficiency by installing pumps in its many manufacturing facilities.
Finally, learn about the benefits of automatic adhesive fill systems -
including reduced labor and raw-material costs - in “Automatic Bulk Adhesive
Feed System Provides Benefits to Manufacturers.”
We at ASI
strive to bring you the latest trends
and developments in adhesives and sealants manufacturing. “Glue Fly Glue”
details a University
study that explains why the caddisfly's silk is sticky when wet and how that
may make it valuable as an adhesive tape during surgery. Also, “Flying High”
looks at how sealants, transparencies, and coatings used on the Boeing 787
Dreamliner jet help to simplify maintenance and reduce costs for airlines while
enhancing the flying experience for crews and passengers who travel aboard the
world’s newest jetliner.

In the February issue, the article “Chemical-Free Coating” inadvertently
indicates that the Plasmadust process is free of chemicals, when the process is
actually solvent-free and chemical-free. ASI
regrets the oversight.
