EP62-1 two-part epoxy is for adhesion, sealing or coating under harsh conditions. Is thermally stable, with a glass transition temperature exceeding 170°C. Has a working life of more than 12 hr. at ambient temperatures and a 100:10 mix ratio by weight. Features color coding. Cures rapidly at elevated temperatures, with schedules ranging from 4 to 6 hr. at 60°-70°C to 10 min. at 125°C. Is an electrical insulator with a volume resistivity exceeding 1014 ohm-cm and a dielectric constant of 3.25 at 60 Hz. Delivers tensile shear strengths greater than 2,300 psi and tensile strengths over 8,500 psi. Contains no solvents or diluents. Serviceable over the temperature range of -60°F to +450°F; has a shelf life of one year in unopened, original containers.

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.

The Human Touch

For those who count on the electronics industry for big feats, it’s been a remarkable couple of years.
