Aero-mide(TM) polyimide foam insulation is available in a light density as low as 0.3 pcf. In addition, Aero-mide continues to be available at its original densities of 0.55 and 2 pcf. Aero-mide provides high thermal and acoustical performance in aerospace applications, and is for use in composites with fiberglass for insulating commercial and private aircraft. The insulation is used as a primary or secondary insulation in multiple aerospace applications.
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.
