Adhesives, Sealants & Lubricants

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.

Adhesives, Sealants & LubricantsEncapsulated adhesives can be used in applications such as:

  • Threaded fasteners
  • Labels
  • Consumer and industrial tapes
  • Fittings
  • Packaging & paper goods
  • Industrial processing
  • Electronics

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.

LUBRICANTS

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.
