Multi-Seals, Inc. has introduced an innovative alternative to liquid adhesives for component assembly. Multi-Seals Poly-forms™ are flexible pre-shaped adhesives designed for sealing and bonding diverse materials, including metals, plastics, ceramics, and glass. When heated, Poly-forms melt and form a seal that will not re-liquefy after the polymer has set. The pre-shaped copolymer prevents drips, inconsistencies, and waste typical of liquid adhesives. Adhesive placement is highly consistent from seal to seal and bond to bond. Minimal operator training allows highly repeatable results despite changes in personnel or assembly locations. The durability and flexibility of Poly-forms facilitates manual and automated handling to increase production rates and reduce labor costs. Poly-forms can be pre-shaped in multiform configurations to accommodate a broad range of applications, and rapid prototyping allows component designers to qualify and optimize seal designs.
