Made for coating large structures and components such as motor housings, bag houses, cyclones, hoppers, pipelines and precipitators, this single-part, gray, low-viscosity, polymeric coating cures and dries at room temperature into a hard, non-porous and abrasion resistant material. It has survived long-term salt fog, salt spray and humidity of over 1,000 hours, and resists hydrochloric, nitric, ethylene chloride and sulfuric acids. It comes in a 200-240 cps viscosity, a specific gravity of 1.05 gms/cc, and solids by volume of 49 percent (67 percent by weight). It usually goes on by brush, roller or ordinary pneumatic spray equipment in a 4.0 mil wet film thickness, and dries to about 2.0 mils, typically covering 722 sq ft per gallon in a 1.0 mil dry film. It can also be applied directly on rusted surfaces. It comes in pint, quart and gallon containers. Aremco Products Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-624
Lithium-ion battery prices will drop rapidly over the next 10 years, setting the stage for plug-in vehicles to reach 5%-10% of total automotive sales by the mid- to late-2020s, according to a new study.
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
A recent Design News-exclusive study proves that engineering professionals are at the very forefront of this push into the future and making direct financial, performance, and value impact on their organizations by being personally involved or final decision-makers on automation solution and component choices.
