Norcryl Solid Acrylic Bonding Tape (Discontinued)

Model # A1010

***Discontinued by Saint-Gobain*** A1010 is a 10 mil solid acrylic core that provides a very high bond that can reduce or replace conventional fasteners, rivets, liquid adhesives and welds. The Norcryl solid acrylic core has outstanding internal strength. Norcryl structural grade bonding power can save time, increase productivity, reduce costs and improve overall product appearance. Norcryl is resistant to ultraviolet radiation, high humidity and climate extremes. A 3-year aging study showed that its adhesion strength actually increases with time. Norcryl maintains a strong bond in high temperatures. Over time Norcryl will not harden or become brittle. Norcryl A-1000 series is water clear and virtually invisible after installation. Conventional attachment methods cause localized distortions and stresses as the temperature fluctuates. An example of this includes dimples found on riveted trailer side skins. Norcryl tapes minimize these stress points by distributing stresses evenly across the entire tape contact area and compensating for thermal expansion. This provides a uniform appearance and improves fatigue resistance. Norcryl also acts as a joint seal, reduces noise, dampens vibrations and prevents galvanic corrosion when bonding dissimilar metals.

Electrostatically Charged High Air Flow Filter

Model # HAF FILTRATION MEDIA

The Revolutionary New 3Mâ„¢ High Air Flow (HAF) Filtration Media reduces your risk of pressure drop. HAF uses microstructure technology to create an array of air flow channels. These channels are electrostatically charged to attract and trap oppositely charged, unwanted particles along the air channel walls, while leaving the channel open for air flow. The electrostatic charge greatly increases HAF’s ability to capture and retain smaller and intermediate sized particles, without an increase in fiber density. Once the particles have made contact with the filter media, they are held by intermolecular attractive forces better known as van der Waals forces. Electrostatically charged 20 mm HAF media captures particles as small as 6.5 microns with 74% fractional efficiency in low flow rates of 20 ft./minute. (As reference, the diameter of a human hair is about 100 microns and the human eye typically can not see particles less than 50-60 microns). HAF allows significantly more air to flow over your coils or through your fans than typical loaded filters. HAF is not HEPA rated, it is not considered an extremely high efficiency media or suitable as a primary furnace filter. However, it is often used as a secondary pre-filter in these applications. As a pre-filter, HAF captures particles in front of expensive or hard to replace high efficiency filters. It can increase efficiency and extend service life, without signicicantly restricting air flow. No matter what the application, HAF users operate cleaner, better performing systems with longer and less expensive maintenance cycles.
