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.
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.
