Polymeric Systems Bring Clarity to Optical Applications

Whereas some optical assembly applications require optical clarity across a certain wavelenth, others require an opaque coating. Optical grade epoxies, silicones and UV curable coatings provide the versatility to adhere well to a wide variety of substrates and the critical performance properties necessary. Learn more about optical transmission, refractive indices, temperature and humidity testing, and more, and the roles these measurements in choosing an effective and reliable optical polymer system.

Ultra Low Thermal Resistant Adhesives for Electronic Applications

As advances in epoxy and silicone materials constantly evolve, manufacturers of advanced electronic systems will find that adhesives offer the ability to meet nearly any combination of requirements for thermal, environmental, and structural stability. As product manufacturers face greater challenges in assembling die, package, and other components into products able to cope with increasing heat loads, adhesives are particularly versatile for bonding, sealing and coating. Moreover, the use of filler materials in adhesives can help to fine tune the specific performance demands required to extend product life cycles and meet manufacturing requirements. Learn more about why and how ultra low thermally conductive adhesives are the preferred fastening approach in applications requiring careful thermal management.

Conductive Coatings Protect Circuitry from EM/RF and ESD

With the trend toward smaller and smaller electronic devices, unintentional EMI/RFI interference has become more of an issue. Shielding of these interferences is critical and coatings can be successfully applied as protection on the materials used. In this paper, the different sources of interference are explored, as well as how coatings can play a critical role in protecting these sensitive components and boards.

Truly Automated Light and Color Measurement for Tell-Tales and Indicators

In Conjunction with SAEEvaluating the accuracy of light and color across instrument clusters is a challenge compounded by several factors. The number of indicators, the varying location of symbols, and the range of colors on an automotive display prove complex for automated inspection systems and human inspectors alike. This 30-minute Webinar explores Auto-POI, the latest technology for light and color measurement of multi-point inspection areas using an Imaging Colorimeter, enabling automated evaluation across entire instrument clusters.
