In addition to the end-user section, this issue is also full of excellent editorial for formulators of electronics and other adhesives and sealants. An article from Verichem examines biocides and their use in adhesive and sealant formulations ("Biocides: The Necessary Evil of Protecting and Preserving Adhesives and Sealants"). "A Matter of Choice" takes a look at the selection of additives for adhesives and sealants and its dependence on the processing equipment being used. Additionally, ASI Editorial Advisory Board Member Dave Dunn reports from the induction ceremony of the Inventors Hall of Fame, where Dr. Harry Coover was recognized for his invention of cyanoacrylate adhesives - the so-called "Super Glues."
