Paper Abstract

In the past, we had electronic devices which used Loctite 680 (an anaerobic adhesive) and Loctite Primer-T returned from the field with a whitish debris contamination. The debris, ranging from a few microns to several hundred microns (agglomerated) in diameter, had caused a serious problem in the field. The white debris turned out to be related to the Primer- T used on the electronic components. In this paper, we show how we used FT-IR and FT- Raman microscopy to identify the contaminant and the source of the contamination and to gain a better understanding on the formation of the contaminant.
