MATERIALS:Master Bond has released a high temperature epoxy for service above 500F. EP125 is a toughened, two part epoxy designed to withstand exposure to boiling acids, alkalis, salts, fuels and most organic solvents. It develops durable bonds between metallic and nonmetallic surfaces. The heat resistant adhesive features excellent dimensional stability in addition to superior electrical insulating properties. Thermally stable bonds retain their pertinent physical profile and chemical resistance even after prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures.EP125- heat resistant epoxy achieves a lap shear strength on the order of 2,500 psi at ambient temperatures. After heat aging for 1,000 hours at 500F, an excellent, near 50 percent of the original bond strength, is retained. Castings exhibit flexural strength as high as 15,000 psi and a flexural modulus of more than 500,000 psi. 100 percent reactive, solvent and volatile free, the high temperature sealant/coating cures at elevated temperatures. Cure cycles can be widely adjusted so as to best meet specific processing needs. Master Bond’s improved high temperature epoxy is recommended for bonding, casting, laminating and sealing applications where exceptional long term resistance to heat and aggression is imperative.
Enabling the Future is designing prosthetic appendages modeled more like superhero arms and hands than your average static artificial limbs. And they’re doing it through a website and grassroots movement inspired by two men’s design and creation in 2012 of a metal prosthetic for a child in South Africa.
In order to keep an enterprise truly safe from hackers, cyber security has to go all the way down to the device level. Icon Labs is making the point that security has to be built into device components.
Three days after NASA's MAVEN probe reached Mars, India's Mangalyaan probe went into orbit around the red planet. India's first interplanetary mission, and the first successful Mars probe launched by an Asian nation, has a total project cost of nearly $600 million less than MAVEN's.
Plant user interfaces are beginning to incorporate the consumer features such as swipe, double tap, and pinch. The driver is Millennials who expect plant equipment to match the sophistication of the smartphone.
