  • Versatility of fiberglass tanks make them ideal for commerical fire protection systems
    Designers of fire protection systems can confidently select a fiberglass water tank installed above or below grade based on decades of use storing hazardous and flammable liquids. As concerns continue to grow about water shortages in many parts of the United States, municipalities and facility
  • Melt Processable, Fiberglass Reinforced, High Heat Thermoplastic Polyimides (.pdf)
    The addition of fiberglass to a new high temperature (Tg 267°C), thermoplastic polyimide yields blends with enhanced performance (these blends fall under US export control restrictions). High stiffness and low CTE make these good candidates for metal replacement. Their facile melt processability
  • Continuous-fiber Extrusions Make Strong Thermoplastics
    A new process combines the economies of extrusion with the strength of composites. CFT materials are stronger, tougher, and more durable than fiberglass-reinforced plastic pultrusions. Tool handles, for instance, are less likely to shatter upon impact, resist UV degradation, can be postformed
  • Silicone Rubber Thermal Interface Materials: Applications and Performance Considerations
    Simple composits of silicone rubber, extending filler, and fiberglass offer an attractive combination of thermal, physical, and electric properties that make these materials an ideal choice for use as thermal interface materials. Good dielectric strength and low thermal impedance that is relatively
  • Wired for speed
    right. A look under the "hood " reveals a truss chassis flanked by rows of battery packs up front. The car rides on special slick-smooth tires built to withstand the high speeds and Bonneville's coarse salt surface. Only three companies make the tires which are characterized by a special rubber
  • No lube, no problem
    for lubrication, and handle high loads. Self-lubricating bearings make sense when relubrication is difficult or when operating conditions compromise liquid lubricants. Such bearings can also eliminate the need for special lubricants in food-processing equipment. Self-lubricated, nonmetallic Duralon bearings
  • Molding a better plastic nut
    with rough-cut edges. There is a longer break-in wear period for the nut. Molded threads also make quicker and more even contact than machined threads. This reduces the initial backlash ( clearance between the screw and nut thread) in the nut. Clearances between the nut and leadscrew are inherent in
  • What new analysts should know about composites
    Recent additions to FEA software make it easier to find stresses and strains in composites. Composites of fiberglass have been around for almost 70 years. Carbon fibers came along about 20 years ago and promised even lighter and stronger composites. The only drawback was accurately predicting
  • Molders strut their stuff
    Molders (ARM) Oak Brook, Ill., design competition illustrate why this often-underutilized molding process can make sense. Ridgefield, Wash., walked away with two accolades. The first, in the Conversion category, was the redesign of the Gen-Eye Junior. The portable video-inspection device is made from
