SMTA Boston Chapter evening meeting on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 at Honle UV America, Inc. in Marlboro, MA.

What You Need To Consider Before Selecting High Tech Adhesives
 
Abstract:  Choosing the best adhesive for a specific application can be complex. There are many variables to be considered and numerous types of chemistries, all with different capabilities. An understanding of the most important parameters will help to narrow the choices.  The discussion will cover some of the more important issues and chemistries needed for choosing the best adhesive.  These parameters are applicable to macro and micro applications for all industries.
Speaker:   Barry Siroka – Business Development Manager – EpoxySet Inc.
Bio:  Barry Siroka started in the chemical industry as a urethane production chemist and moved into technical service of specialty materials in 1980.  Over the course of his 40+ year career, he has worked for several polymer manufacturers and distributors in various technical service/sales/marketing roles.  He has been responsible for training in the use of adhesives to sales personnel, distributors and engineers in most high tech industries. His emphasis is in customer service and solving material problems.  Barry has continued his marketing/sales/customer relationship efforts as the Business Development Manager since joining EpoxySet in 2015.
