Formulated for structural applications in extreme environments with
temperatures from -80 to +425F, Master Bond
Supreme 33 offers resistance to thermal cycling, thermal shock and impact.
This toughened, two-component epoxy offers high structural bond strength to a
wide variety of substrates including metals, glass, ceramics, wood, vulcanized
rubbers and many plastics. Supreme 33 also resists chemicals including water,
oil and many organic solvents.
Supreme 33 has a mix ratio of 100 to 70 by weight or 1 to 1 by volume. It
cures at room temperature in 48 to 72 hours. For optimal performance, the
suggested schedule is curing overnight at room temperature followed by 2 to 3
hours at 150 to 200F. This 100 percent reactive epoxy does not contain any
solvents or diluents, has dimensional stability and features low shrinkage upon
It produces high performance bonds boasting a shear strength over 2,500 psi,
a tensile shear strength greater than 7,500 psi and a T-peel strength exceeding
15 pli. With a volume resistivity of 1014 ohm-cm, a dielectric
strength over 400 volts/mil, and a dielectric constant of 3.8 at 75F, Supreme
33 is an electrical insulator that is widely used in the electronic,
electrical, aerospace and OEM industries. Supreme 33 is also available in a
non-drip version called Supreme 33ND.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
