LightSwitch Frontsheet is a melt processable
fluoropolymer providing weatherability and UV resistance, useful for flexible
and lightweight solar modules. These transparent films provide frontsheets weighing
as low as 0.1 kg/m2 offer resistance to chemicals and weathering, low
flammability, stress crack resistance, and insulating properties. In addition,
LightSwitch Frontsheet is surface-treated to ensure superb adhesion to LightSwitch Encapsulant.
LightSwitch Encapsulant provides cushioning
and structural support to solar cells and circuitry, while maximizing
transmission of sunlight for energy conversion. With weathering properties, it
protects the solar module throughout its lifecycle. LightSwitch Encapsulant is
suitable for both flexible and rigid modules, with adhesion to other PV module components.
LightSwitch Frontsheet Complete, a pre-laminate combining Frontsheet and
Encapsulant, features all the performance benefits of both with improved
production efficiencies, including reduced wrinkles and precise alignment.
The portfolio also includes the LightSwitch
Module Design Program and expert engineering design services for PV module
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
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.
