Posted on Tue, Aug 19, 2014

Thermal expansion can wreak havoc on an electronic device. Is your attachment solution up to the challenge? 3M offers a number of electronics assembly solutions designed specifically to withstand high-heat exposure, so the integrity of your device won’t be compromised as the mercury rises.

Thermal GreaseExpansion and contraction can stress old-fashioned bonding methods, such as nuts and bolts. 

3M products are designed to adhere to different substrates, and maintain an iron-clad grip even as the surfaces expand and contract with temperature fluctuations.

Many of 3M’s modern, high-tech adhesives, however, are made to withstand this environmental stressor while providing you with added design flexibility.

Not sure which 3M product is best for your application?
