This inorganic, water-dispersed, alumina-filled ceramic adhesive is made to bond and seal thermocouple probes in high-temperature environments up to 3,200F (1,760C). It can be put on with a brush, spatula or syringe, and cures in one to two hours at 700F. It gets stronger the hotter it gets, with tensile-shear strength of 900 psi through curing at 1,000F. It's an inert, chemically-resistant adhesive that won't outgas in ultra high vacuum, and, as an electrical insulator, has a resistivity of 109 Ù-cm and a dielectric strength of 250 V/mil. It can also be used in the assembly of dense ceramic components used in ultra-high vacuum equipment, repairing of ceramic saggar plates, and bonding and coating of platinum/rhodium resistance wires to aluminum oxide heaters and other applications.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
