Aremco's newest epoxy, made for bonding applications to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 degrees Celsius), is a two-part, aluminum-nitride-filled epoxy that bonds well to high-temperature plastics such as polyimides and composites, and glass, ceramic, and high-expansion metals. It cures in 2 hours at 200F, or in 24 hours at room temperature. The cured material has a tensile shear strength of 1,375 psi, a thermal conductivity of 8.5 BTU-in/hr-ft2 - Fahrenheit, dielectric strength of 240 V/mil, and good corrosion protection. It comes in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon containers. It is geared toward bonding heat sinks and fins in heat exchangers and electrical/electronic assemblies.

The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
