Aremco's new single-part, ceramic-filled adhesive paste can bond to ceramic, metal, and quartz, and has a dielectric strength of 200 volts per mil, volume resistivity of 109 ohm-cm, coefficient of thermal expansion of 4.2in/in/ F, and a torque strength of 6.0 ft-lbs. It is rated up to 3,000 F (1,650C). It goes on with a brush, syringe, or automatic dispenser. It cures in 24 hours at room temperature, or can cure in two hours at 200F. When cured, it resists moisture and thermal shock. Made for assembly of igniters, thermocouples, probes and sensors such as oxygen analyzers, gas chromatographs, mass spectrometers, and high-vacuum components, it comes from stock in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon pails.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
