The customer was looking for a material that offered a shorter cure time to handling strength allowing them to handle assemblies same day, helping them to reduce work in process, passing the thermal cycle.
|What is the application?||Bonding and sealing a metal plate to the end of a half coil.|
|What issues was the end-user having?||The issues with the current silicone used: 1) 24 hour cure to handle assembly, 2) the silicone exhibited adhesive failure in thermal cycle testing.|
|What material was used to solve the issue?||Permabond PT326|
|Why did this material work better than other materials?||Permabond PT326 shorter cure time to handling strength allowed to handle assemblies same day, reduced work in process, assembly passed the thermal cycle.|
|Was this material lower cost than other materials?||No.|
|Did this material improve the process?||Yes.|
|What industry/market was this material used in?||Electronics|
