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
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
