In the manufacturing environment

Nice detailed article, Robert. I would imagine part of the choice in silicone adhesives has to do with the manufacturing environment. How fast adhesives can be applied in the process and other concerns.

Robert, thanks for a clear, thorough introduction to these important adhesives. Silicone also has superior performance in many coatings for harsh environments as we wrote about here:

Very infomative and useful article and info. Are you aware of any super-high temp adhelives that stay stable at about 200C to 225C?

I;m very much interested in a structuraly stable adhesive at these temperatures.

sensor pro, on the second page of my article on structural adhesives and fasteners

http://www.designnews.com/document.asp?doc_id=237011&page_number=2

Heather Doughty from Fabrico mentions structural adhesives that are stable at up to 225F, although without naming specific brands. I suspect Fabrico will know if what you want exists, and which suppliers provide it.

Dear Ann,

Thank you for your reply. I actually look for 225C ( about 410F-430F ).  i will contact them and see if they can direct me into the right direction.

Thank again.

You're welcome. Apparently, some structural adhesives actually work OK above 225. Other companies such as Fabrico no doubt also have lots of info on multiple manufacturers' adhesives.

Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
While risk management sounds like one activity, in order to be conducted effectively, it must be broken down into three sub-components: risk assessment, risk monitoring, and response planning.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
To those who have not stepped into additive manufacturing, get involved as soon as possible. This is for the benefit of your company. When the new innovations come out, you want to be ready to take advantage of them immediately, and that takes knowledge.
Design engineers will feel like kids in a candy store with the Cypress Semiconductor BLE Pioneer Kit. The development kit for low-power sensor-based systems is full of wireless wonder and exploration.
