Industrial Materials and Adhesive Manufacturers

Industrial materials and adhesives encompass a wide range of substances that are necessary to many types of industrial applications. Although the category of materials is incredibly broad, and could include anything from plastics, metal, rubber and more, chemicals and adhesives are more specific in terms of the necessary characteristics of those specific substances. The term “adhesives” refers to materials that unite or bond surfaces together and can include such materials as acrylic adhesives. However, common industrial adhesives are often categorized as either a plastic adhesive, such as those made from thermoplastic resins, or an epoxy adhesive , such as Bisphenol A. Essential in numerous applications, some examples of industries in which materials and adhesives are critical components include wastewater, chemical processing, marine, automotive, aerospace, pharmaceutical and electronics.

Types of Materials and Adhesives:

Adhesives

Adhesives are compounds that are used to bond two objects together. The type of adhesive used is based on a number of different factors primarily the strength of the bond required and the two objects involved with the bonding. Adhesive types are generally grouped as reactive, pressure-sensitive, thermoplastic, light-curing, and drying. Adhesives can be used for temporary bonding or permanent bonding and typically there are three styles of industrial adhesives which include silicone adhesives, acrylic adhesives and polyurethane adhesives.

Ceramic Manufacturing

Ceramic manufacturing is the process of creating ceramic product for various industries such as automotive, aerospace, military, food processing and medical. Ceramics have a number of benefits including light weight, high hardness level, oxidation resistance, high melting point, corrosion resistance and more. Many turn to ceramics simply for their superior protection from heat and extremely long service lifetime.

EMI Shielding

EMI Shielding, also known as electromagnetic interference shielding, is a term used to refer to product that protect objects from electromagnetic fields. EMI Shielding comes in various forms such as EMI enclosures, EMI filters, EMI gaskets, EMI coatings, RF absorbers and more. These items are generally constructed from stainless steel, nickel, copper and aluminum alloys.
