Engineering Case Study: Glue in die cut form-Fastel Adhesives


Editors note: This is a Case Study from our partner supplier Fastel Adhesives, and here is their Industrial Interface Supplier Profile.

1) Glue in the form of film?

As an engineer, I was always interested in the latest, greatest, and most unique technologies. Fastel Adhesives introduces the world’s only glue in the form of Film that bonds and seals quickly. Benefits include:
  • No Mess
  • Quick Cure
  • Re-Workable

2) Custom Die-Cutting

All of our FastelFilm products have the ability to be die cut per your mounting or sealing outline requirements (Available options include die cut individual parts or continuous die cut parts on rolls for efficient dispensing/installation). Popular applications include bonding and/or sealing of a variety of materials, fasteners, components as well as lamination of materials throughout multiple industries including electronics, automotive, alternative energy, medical, industrial and packaging markets.

3) Easy Rework

With FastelFilm’s quick cure time, the adhesive can be applied using a variety of thermal induction methods including a curing oven (most common). Fastelfilm can be cycled higher than its recommended application temperatures for long periods of time if being cured alongside other heat required materials/adhesives in a curing oven. Need to re-work without damaging the materials you are working with? Simple! Fastelfilm is re-workable by simply re-applying heat past its phase-change temperature.

4) Heat Activated Bonding

Our FastelFilm Heat Activated Adhesive Films are readily available in multiple thicknesses (0.001″ to 0.050″) and formulation phase-change (melt point) temperatures. Fastelfilm’s ability to provide a high performance bond is not only a result of its unique formulation, but through its ability to fill in microscopic surface imperfections of your materials during application as well as provide a uniform bond line between 2 material interfaces. Popular phase-change temperatures include 160F/71C, 200F/93C and 230F/110C. Options include a free standing adhesive film product or FastelFilm Adhesive coated on 1 or 2 sides at multiple thicknesses on a range of Foils, PET Films, Kapton/Polyimide Films just to name a few.
