ST-1665 polyether thermoplastic poly-urethane provides heat resistance and maintains its integrity over a relatively high processing temperature spectrum. In multi-layer laminations such as camping mattresses, for example, the material is typically used on the "high heat" side of the lamination. The high melt temperature of the urethane allows it to maintain its integrity and performance characteristics while films on the other side of the substrate soften and bond, forming a multi-layer lamination.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
