MATERIALS: Master Bond’s newly developed EP42HT 2ND2 has a paste-like consistency and facilitates the adhesive’s application when bonding vertical surfaces. This no-run two part epoxy fully complies with the testing requirements for USP Class VI biocompatibility. EP42HT 2ND2 cures readily at ambient temperatures and exhibits superior thermal stability for service up to 450F. It forms high strength bonds that are unaffected by sterilization processes such as radiation, ethylene oxide, chemical sterilants and steam, along with outstanding resistance to inorganic and organic acids, alkalis and organic solvents.The cured biocompatible epoxy adhesive is an excellent electrical insulator with a volume resistivity greater than >10 14 ohm-cm. While EP42HT 2ND2 is a superior adhesive, sealant and coating, it is also castable to thicknesses exceeding 2-3 inches. A post cure of 200-266F for two to three hours enhances physical properties including heat resistance. As a no drip formulation EP42HT 2ND2 provides a precise and clean bonding solution for the vertical surface set ups often found in medical assemblies.
Master Bond is a premier medical grade adhesives manufacturer offering an extensive line of medical device adhesives, sealants and medical coatings. One and two-part medical adhesive systems specifically designed for use in both disposable and reusable medical devices stand up to standard disinfectants and sterilization procedures. Medical epoxy systems meet USP Class VI biocompatibility standards.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
