Wire Dots
  • Clean up your act when bonding wires. Wire Dots make the job of bonding jumper wires neat and fast.

  • Who wants to see a mess like this when bonding wires with messy glues and adhesives.

  • Wire Dots are available in four sizes for bonding single wires or groups of wires.

Features
Very good initial bond strength that increases over 72 hours to stabilize as a high strength reliable bond.
High humidity has a minimal effect on adhesive performance.
Will hold securely after exposure to numerous chemicals including cleaning solutions/sprays, saponifiers, mild acids and alkalies.
Wires will hold securely through a typical PCB hot water wash.
Can be repositioned during and immediately after initial bonding without causing adhesive transfer or loss of bond strength.
Retains its performance and properties for one year from date of purchase when stored at room temperature.

Clean up your act when bonding wires. Wire Dots make the job of bonding jumper wires neat and fast.

Wire Dots are a wire tacking system consisting of pre-cut shapes of a thin, flexible polymer film coated on one side with a high performance, electronics grade permanent pressure sensitive adhesive. The result is a highly conformable, high strength bond.

Wire Dots will hold secure after exposure to numerous chemicals including cleaning solutions/sprays, saponifiers, mild acids and alkalies. And will hold secure through a typical circuit board hot water wash.
