Featured Tools & Supplies Products
TE Connectivity (TE) offers a wide range of identification and labeling products that have a long life and are suitable for use in the most extreme indoor and outdoor conditions. The company focuses on supplying high quality materials and adhesives that meet or exceed industry standards, and specializes in custom and pre-print adhesive-backed labels that suit the requirements of the industrial, rail and alternative energy markets. TE’s technologies are also applicable for the aerospace, electronics, defense/marine and medical sectors. In addition, the company offers a complete line of laser engraved labels and markers.
EET-SL V-4-W safety labels were developed for thermal transfer printers. Made of PVC these labels are available in yellow and have an acrylic adhesive backing. These safety labels are triangular in shape and come blank to allow the user to print any safety symbol or text desired.
EP is a thermal transfer printable paper with a permanent adhesive, designed for use in general purpose labeling applications requiring a low cost label material.
The ESSW safety and warning labels are made with pressure sensitive adhesive. They are suitable for labeling electrical tools, apparatuses and installations. The available printed symbols are protected by lamination to resist abrasion and aggressive fluids.

Anti-Static Control Products
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can create catastrophic or latent failures in electronic components. It is crucial that work spaces remain free of static by using measures to prevent triboelectric charging and electrostatic induction. Removing static can be accomplished by grounding personnel, providing antistatic devices, and controlling humidity. A wide range of anti-static control products
are available such as flooring, work space mats, bags, tapes, ionizers, dessicants and personnel grounding products, as well as ESD monitoring and testing equipment.
A variety of chemicals
and cleaning products are used in the design and prototyping processes. Products to keep on hand include adhesives, epoxies, lubricants, protective coatings, cleaners/degreasers, flux removers, dusters, as well as freezers, wipes, swabs, brushes, and desoldering braid.
include breadboards and protoboards, adapter boards, and jumper wires for creating electronic prototypes and experimenting with circuit design. A breadboard or protoboard is a reusable base used to create temporary prototypes. Solderless breadboards are perforated plastic blocks with spring clips, or tie points, underneath the typically .1" spaced perforations. Circuit designs are created with ICs, discrete components, and wire. Adapter boards allow fine-pitch components to be used with standard .1" spaced protoboards.
Solder and Flux
is a process in which two or more metal items are joined together by melting and flowing a filler metal (solder) into the joint. Electronic soldering connects electrical wiring and electronic components to printed circuit boards (PCBs). The purpose of flux is to facilitate the soldering process by preventing oxidation and, in some cases, by providing some form of chemical cleaning (corrosion). Hand soldering is performed with a soldering iron, soldering gun, or a hot-air pencil.
