Re: Sometimes they let go after a while.

I'm curious to know how they perform in humid conditions. I've had problems with these on the user end, often in consumer electronics. The peel off and separate problem has usually occurred in high humidity with various types of clear overlays, not with other tapes due to loading issues.

Low Surface Energy Applications

Very good discussion about the challenges of bonding to low surface energy materials.  I appreciate the continued development of next generation adhesives to address this issue.

In addition to adhesive selection, surface texture on the component can also be modified to increase bonding ability.  In general a smoother surface will bond better than a textured surface.

I have had unfortunate experiences with some pressure sensitive adhesive applications. What happened is that the adhesive would initially adhere in what appeared to be a satisfactory manner, but after a few hours, or even a few days, it would peel off and separate. This was in applications with a constant loading, so there was a force tending to separate the connection. Non-pressure sensitive adhesives would function in the same application, but they are all a lot more time and effort, although often less costly.

So do the new types of adhesive solve this problem for me?

Mr. Rizzo, thank you for teaching me some things I didn't know about PSAs.

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?

In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
