Bond Inc.'s EP62-1MED is a two component epoxy adhesive system for chemical
and temperature resistance. This compound is specifically designed to withstand
repeated cycles of steam, ethylene oxide, radiation and chemical sterilization.
EP62-1MED cures at moderately elevated temperatures (150 - 200F) and offers a
long working life at room temperatures. It contains no solvents or volatiles
and has a 100 to 10 mix ratio by weight.
EP62-1MED bonds to metals,
glass, ceramics, wood and most plastics and is serviceable up to 400F. Shrinkage upon cure is <0.06 percent. The color of part A is clear and part B is
brown. EP62-1MED is available in pint,
quart, gallon and 5 gallon kits. It is
also available in gun applicators for ease of use.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
