Most stadiums leak at expansion joints. The ones that don't, though, are characterized by a design and building process that involves a shift in the traditional way stakeholders relate and execute their work.
Two-part epoxy, acrylic, silicone and urethane adhesives deliver excellent performance in a range of applications, but processing can be difficult. Fortunately, equipment technology advancements now provide adhesive users with options to ensure a controlled mixing and dispensing process on their assembly lines.
Machine intelligence software is designed to uncover hidden trends in data while modeling a large number of variables. By learning more from your data with this approach, cost savings of 75% or more can be realized, compared to traditional R&D programs.
Where can a company turn for meaningful cost savings once its other options - raw-material supply agreements, logistics and inventory control, etc. - have been exhausted? This article explores an underexploited option for companies producing formulated products.
Adhesive technology is equal parts chemistry and "black magic." The sheer number of available substrates makes it nearly impossible to test each adhesive on every type. However, by conducting tests on a selection of novel, or difficult-to-adhere-to, substrates, we can make inferences that may help narrow the choice of adhesives.
