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.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
