LO/FR Poron(reg) urethane foams are flame-retardant to UL94 HBF and MVSS 302 and provide low outgassing levels, which enable the foams to achieve the current automotive fogging tests. The raw materials for the LO/FR Poron grades are also compliant with the existing and emerging environmental content requirements and do not require any special notification, labeling, or deviations. LO/FR Poron grades are available in different formulations. Applications in the electronics industry include PCB shock/vibration cushions, LCD gaskets, and ribbon connector pressure pads.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
