MATERIALS:Master Bond EP30M3LV is a specially engineered, low exothermic epoxy system formulated to help avoid excess heat buildup and damage to thermally sensitive components during potting operations. It also contains a special additive to remove air bubbles. This compound cures at room temperatures or more rapidly at elevated temperatures, and can be cured in various cross section thicknesses. EP30M3LV has a volume resistivity of 2×1015 ohm cm at 25C. It has a convenient 2:1 mix ratio by weight and an advantageously low mixed viscosity of 2,000-3,000 cps. It has a service operating temperature range of -60 to 250F. EP30M3LV also has superior dimensional stability, a flexural strength of 14,000 psi and a tensile strength of >8,000 psi. Master Bond EP30M3LV is environmentally friendly, 100 percent reactive and contains no solvents or diluents. It is available for use in half-pint, pint, quart, gallon and 5 gal pail kits.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
Robots in films during the 2000s hit the big time; no longer are they the sidekicks of nerdy character actors. Robots we see on the big screen in recent years include Nicole Kidman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Eddie Murphy. Top star of the era, Will Smith, takes a spin as a robot investigator in I, Robot. Robots (or androids or cyborgs) are fully mainstream in the 2000s.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
