Dear Electronics Colleague:

This past week, I had the pleasure seeing Iggy Pop perform with Queens of the Stone Age at the Chicago Theater. The band was amazing and Iggy can still do his thing at 68 years old!


In February, BEST was presented Circuit Assembly's NPI Award for the HeatShield Gel at the IPC APEX Expo in San Diego. Sponsored by Circuit Assembly Magazine, the NPI Awards program recognizes the electronic assembly industry's new leading products.

HeatShield Gel is a thermal shield water-based gel designed to be used in the PCB rework/repair or board assembly areas in order to provide thermal protection of electronic components.

For more information, visit our HeatShield Gel product webpage or call Chris Edwards at 847-797-9250.

All the best,


Bob Wettermann
