That principle works for adhesives in just about every application, and it's critical in automotive and aerospace products.

I agree, this was a very informative and easy to understand article that discusses an important topic in LED Assembly production. The importance of adhesive selection if overlooked can result in a very poor product despite an otherwise solid design,  and understanding their interaction up front can save time and money in the long run.

"Careful adhesive selection during device design ensures that any incompatibilities between LEDs and adhesives never occur" sounds like excellent advice. Thanks for a great article.

Thanks for the educational posting. What we learn is that the whole process is quite complex and that it is vital to understand each of the materials involved, including their chemistry. 

So it is clear that one must work with a reliable supplier to make the correct choices, and then do an adequate amount of testing to assure that the selected materials will work even with the range of production variations. Because we know that there does exist a bit of variability.

When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
The machine is claimed to be the largest and most powerful electric pipe-bender on the market, exerting nearly 500,000 lb-ft of torque.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
This consulting firm has put together a report detailing the growing biomimicry design field in the US and around the world, from naturally bacteria-repelling surfaces to keratin-inspired polymers.
