ADHESIVES & SEALANTS
Bonding on demand! That’s what we offer at Microtek. A microencapsulated adhesive can be released with pressure (impact) or temperature. The capsule wall acts like a microscopic container, holding the adhesive for long periods of time until the wall is broken down either by an applied pressure or a certain temperature. Once the capsule wall is ruptured, the adhesive can form the desired bond.
Encapsulated adhesives can be used in applications such as:
We can help you source an adhesive for encapsulation or we can work with adhesives you already know work in your process or product. Permanent or repositionable, aqueous-based or solvent-based, one-part or two-part systems – let us create an on-demand bonding system for you.
Just as we can provide on-demand bonding, Microtek can help create a microencapsulation system to provide on-demand lubrication. Lubricants can be encapsulated to release and provide lubrication under certain mechanical loads or in high-temperature situations.
Microtek has experience in developing microencapsulated adhesives, sealants and lubricants. Please call to discuss your needs for these products.
