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.

Silicone an up-and-coming material

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.
