To reduce distortion of FRP panels exposed to direct
sunlight, Henkel Corp. has introduced
a new urethane hot melt adhesive formulated to withstand high temperatures in excess
of 200F. PurmeltÂ®R-200F+ improves distortion resistance up to five times
longer than traditional polyurethane adhesives, and allows manufacturers to use
dark graphics and full-body paint on sidewall designs.
Suitable for roll coating processes, patent-pending
Purmelt R-200F+ was developed to allow RV manufacturers to create aesthetically
pleasing graphics and paint schemes without straining the fiberglass-reinforced
plastic substrates on exposure to sunlight.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
