THERMATTACH(reg) T410 thermally conductive, double-sided adhesive tape is for bonding heat sinks onto plastic IC packages. T410 thermal tape features a silicone-based, pressure-sensitive adhesive on one side of a 0.002-inch aluminum foil carrier. The tape's other side is a thermally loaded, high-bond strength acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive that bonds securely to metal heat sinks. Applications include bonding heat sinks to molded plastic ball grid array packages and other ICs that typically dissipate from 1 to 5W of heat.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
