Next generation flexible anaerobic gasket from ThreeBond

Next generation flexible anaerobic gasket from ThreeBond
Market leaders ThreeBond recently announced the general release of their unique TB1133E next generation anaerobic gasket. Building on the acknowledged benefit of anaerobics to be dispensed and then permit component placement at leisure, TB1133E offers enhanced vibration tolerance and user-friendly characteristics. This enables greater confidence in established applications such as gearboxes and cam covers, while opening up uses in sealing of complex areas such as automatic transmissions, transfer cases etc. In particular, it is screen printable and so offers significant time savings against robotic dispensing on intricate 2D shapes proving especially valuable where elimination of potential oil gallery blockage is paramount.

ThreeBond launch gold standard in instant adhesives

ThreeBond launch gold standard in instant adhesives
Generic Cyanoacrylates have earned the reputation of “instant” adhesives from their ability to be used immediately with little preparation and to cure in very short time periods. ThreeBond TB7700 Gold Series now takes that a stage further with Ultra-fast curing (as low as 2 seconds), very high initial bond strength and enhanced substrate applicability, even encompassing porous or hard-to-bond materials such as PBT, PCM or PPS. It is expected that all types of industrial user will find Gold Standard TB7700 a significant advance over conventional cyanoacrylates.

Victrex® Peek™ Polymer Replaces Metal Poppets For Improved Compressor Valve Performance

Victrex® Peek™ Polymer Replaces Metal Poppets  For Improved Compressor Valve Performance
Manufacturers of check valves and pressure relief valves for hydraulic and pneumatic compressors are constantly looking for ways to improve the performance of their products. Valve performance, more than any other component, determines compressor efficiency. To achieve improvements such as reduced fluid leakage, noise reduction, longer valve life, and cost reduction, a number of manufacturers are turning to Performance Plastics Ltd. (PPL), a high performance injection molding specialist, for assistance. To meet the requirements, PPL suggests replacing the metal poppets in the valves with poppets made of VICTREX® PEEK™ polymer, a high performance thermoplastic. Substituting plastic for metal maintains strength while improving corrosion resistance, reducing weight, and allowing for greater design flexibility.
