Light Weld(reg) adhesives form water-clear bonds in seconds to glass as well as many plated metal and plastic substrates. The non-yellowing bonds formed exhibit tensile/shear strength, and impact and vibration resistance. Moisture resistance allows the adhesives to withstand hundreds of dishwashed cycles as well as severe environmental conditions, and exhibit resistance to yellowing due to severe thermal exposure. Applications include bonding and laminating automotive and architectural glass, stemware, and optical and lens bonding.
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.
