Solder cream

Multicore(R) CR32 is a lead-free, no-clean solder cream used in high-volume production processes, as in fine pitch stencil printing at a rate of up to 150 mm/sec. No cleaning is required, due to the non-corrosive, post-soldering residue that is produced. According to the company, the product provides good open time and tack performance, high slump resistance, and low solder balling.

Gasket tape

GORE-TEX(R) Series 300 gasket tape, used for sealing large-diameter steel piping and equipment, reportedly provides a conformable, compressible seal for damaged or irregular flanges. According to the company, the tape tolerates temperatures from -450 to 600F, resists most chemicals, and reduces long lead times and gasket inventories. Tape comes in four widths and thicknesses of 1.6 mm and 3.2 mm.

CR geometry

Unidrill(R) CR geometry is designed to improve chip control and reduce power consumption in steel, stainless steel, cast iron, high temperature alloy, aluminum, and non-ferrous alloy applications. V-shaped splitters eliminate stress points and increase tool life. Corner radii reportedly minimize exit burrs, improve heat dissipation, and improve surface finish.

These Micrometer Torque Wrenches feature the Big Dawg(TM) rachet head with 6.8 degrees articulation for tight-space applications. The first bi-material ergonomic grip in the industry resists degradation from water, greases and oils. Fewer parts mean lower calibration drift more comfort, a low-profile head, less articulation, and slip resistance.
