Got stuck with the wrong adhesive?

The Industrial Adhesives Sealants & Encapsulants (IASE) Exhibition is building on the format of its successful sister FAST Exhibition in offering a problem solving forum where design and assembly engineers can meet the experts with the adhesives answers.

Supported by the British Adhesives & Sealants Association (BASA), the IASE exhibition showcases the latest industrial adhesives, sealants and encapsulants. "Engineers will find plentiful ideas on alternative adhesive solutions to discuss in confidence, and are welcome to bring product samples and drawings for expert appraisal too," said IASE Organiser Mark Newby.

Take applications that involve mouldings or fabrications: the choice of adhesives and methods is extensive. For example, is it better to hand dispense or use a low-cost robotic dispenser? Use tape or one-part liquid adhesive? What about "super-glues" and two-part self-cure materials? Is it worth going down the visible light/UV cure route? Do I need an optically clear potting compound? How about a form-in-place (FIP) gasket system for removable items?

The IASE exhibition takes place at the National Motorcycle Museum on 21st October, and offers free show entry and free parking for all visitors. Visitors who pre-register in advance may also have the advantage of a Complimentary Luncheon Voucher worth £5 plus a Complimentary Museum Pass (otherwise priced at £6.95) too. Visitors will also have access to the successful FAST (Fastening & Assembly Technology) Exhibition at the same event.
