A pair of cyanoacrylate adhesives from Henkel Loctite Corp. provide flexibility for applications that must withstand vibration, impact and fatigue loads. Loctite 4851 and Loctite 4861 are supple enough to attach to flexible substrates such as tubing, o-rings, rubber, paper, leather and fabric. The instant adhesives are clear, with formulations that provide reduced hardness and improved thermocycling resistance. These single component adhesives will bond a wide range of metal, plastic or elastomeric materials and are particularly suited for use on flexible, porous or absorbent substrates like those used in medical devices and loudspeaker components. They can also be used with delicate substrates. Both products are pending ISO 10993 biocompatibility compliance for use in medical device applications.
Loctite 4851 is a medium-viscosity adhesive for general purpose bonding. Loctite 4861 is a high-viscosity adhesive for porous and absorbent materials.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
