Covestro recently announced that it developed its water-based INSQIN technology in order to create a sustainable, efficient, and permanent polyurethane coating for textiles and to produce high-quality synthetic materials, especially for car interiors.
Vacuum potting is mainly aimed at electronic components with small openings and complex internal structures.
June 10, 2020
The potting of electronic components involves filling the assembly with a compound such as liquid resin (e.g., epoxy, silicone, polyurethane) to protect it from environmental or use conditions like moisture, humidity, and vibration. Any air entrapment in the potting compound can result in air bubbles that may cause performance problems in the finished component.
Carlisle Polyurethane Systems will continue to focus on foams, surface and specialty coatings, binders, casting resins, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers.
May 28, 2020
Carlisle Construction Materials, an operating segment of Carlisle Companies Inc., recently announced that it is changing the name of its CASE business from Accella Polyurethane Systems to Carlisle Polyurethane Systems.
Engineers, architects, specifiers, facility managers, and homeowners must spend time analyzing what performance levels can be obtained by the adhesive and sealant products that are available to them for the environments in which they are being used.
With increasing consolidation among adhesives manufacturers and the raw material suppliers that support them, global product formulation and availability of materials used in these formulations continue to grow in importance.
You don’t indicate which substrate is on the outside, and this does make a difference in the possible choice of adhesive. Epoxy adhesives were traditionally used for this application, but they should be used with care as they may be too rigid.
Wearable devices are used in medicine to continuously monitor signals such as electrocardiograms and electroencephalograms. They can also be used to monitor physical conditions during exercise. To improve the accuracy of the analysis, many studies have been conducted by directly attaching wearable devices to the skin using a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) sheet.
The recipient of the Polyurethane Innovation Award will be announced at the conclusion of the Polyurethanes Technical Conference in October.
May 1, 2020
The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) recently announced that applications for its Polyurethane Innovation Award are now being accepted through June 15, 2020.
