The EP17 adhesive/sealant has an operating range from -300 to 600F. It cures in 60-90 minutes at temperatures between 300 and 350F. It resists chemicals such as fuels, acids, bases, oils and solvents, bonding well to metals, glass, ceramics, vulcanized rubbers, a number of plastics and other substrates. The machinable cured material has good electrical insulator properties, a tensile strength of 8,700 psi and a tensile modulus of 387,000 psi. It has a Shore D hardness of >90 and a compressive strength of > 13,000 psi. No mixing is needed before use, and the 100 percent reactive material has no solvents or dilutents. It flows as a paste, applicable to vertical surfaces without sagging or dripping. It comes in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon containers. Master Bond Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-625
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
