Devcon's liquid Flexane compounds withstand service temperatures ranging to 350F, meeting many OEM applications including strain relief, potting and encapsulating.
These nonshrinking, waterproof urethanes form nonscratching holding fixtures for tasks like patching cable jackets after splicing. Liquid Flexanes produce no VOC emissions, cure at room temperature and are available in several viscosities with cured hardness ranging from Shore A 78 (or lower with Flex-Add additive) to Shore A 97, tensile strengths to 3,300 psi, tear resistances to 515 pli, and dielectric strengths to 350 Volts/mil. They hold up indoors or outdoors under conditions of abrasion, vibration and temperature cycling.
Flexanes for strain relief and potting, encapsulating and insulating electrical connectors, wires and cables include Flexane 80, a medium-viscosity formula that cures to semi-rigid rubber and Flexane 94, a low-viscosity encapsulant that fills voids completely and cures to a rigid rubber. Flexane Fast Cure Liquid is a faster-curing formula. For more information on Devcon Flexane, go to http:// rbi.ims.ca/4933-502.
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.
