Henkel Corp.'s Loctite
E-40EXP is a two-component,
potting compound designed to pass UL testing requirements for
explosion-proof electric motors and maintain more than 85 percent of its compression
strength following exposure to 13 harsh chemicals. Henkel developed this
potting material in anticipation of the revised UL-674 requirements for potting
and sealing compounds used in hazardous locations.
Used to pot and seal wire conduits, Loctite E-40EXP isolates the electric motor
from hazardous vapors and chemicals that could cause an explosion. Clean and
fast-curing, Loctite E-40EXP can be used in any size fitting, potting or
sealing application. The material will not expand and experiences very little
shrinkage, facilitating accurate dispensing.
Loctite E-40EXP is available either in user-friendly 2:1 static mix cartridges
for easy dispensing or in bulk for high volume applications. This material cures in approximately 2
hours at room temperature and contains no carcinogens, ensuring worker safety.
In addition to motor applications, Loctite E-40EXP is suitable for assembling
or repairing pumps, fans, lighting, electrical connectors, sensors and probes.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
