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.
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).
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.
