The customer wants to bond sensitive electronic components to a printed circuit board (PCB). The adhesion needs to be fast curing, dimensionally stable, withstand high temperatures and resist chemicals. In order to recommend the right solution, our technical expert needs to find out answers to certain questions pertaining to the customers application:
Epoxies make an excellent choice of material for space applications. However, selecting the right adhesive is extremely critical for the performance of various optical and electronic components in space. One of the key concerns while selecting an adhesive for space applications is its serviceability in extremely high vacuum environment. Systems operate under very high vacuum (~ 10^-8 torr) in space. Any outgassing from the adhesive could lead to failure of crucial components of the system.
