Isocyanates react with compounds that have active hydrogens. For example, in coating applications, isocyanates are typically reacted with polyols to form polyurethanes, or with primary and secondary amines to form polyureas. Catalysis of the polyol/isocyanate reaction, which is often required to develop sufficient cure response, can be achieved with a variety of compounds.
Testing pressure sensitive adhesives under standard conditions of temperature and relative humidity is a preferred means to compare data from lab to lab and from lot to lot.

Reportedly, the usability of these adhesive in several end-use applications, coupled with the rising demand for instant adhesive, is estimated to boost the demand for instant adhesive in the near future.
Electronic components that contain a die require a path by which excess heat can be removed from the component package. In low-voltage plastic-encapsulated microcircuits, the heat may simply travel by conduction through the die attach and the die paddle for dissipation through the bottom of the package.
