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
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
