  • Filled UV Curable Epoxy Provides Low CTE For Electronic Potting and Encapsulating
    , the resin and the catalyst (hardener). Epoxies, Etc... has developed a unique low CTE Ultraviolet Curable Epoxy that has many benefits over its two component counterparts.
  • Basic Properties of FRP Enclosures
    Vynckier "FRP" (Fiberglass Reinforced Polyester) Enclosures are made from a "hot compression molded" fiberglass reinforced polyester. FRP is a complex composite material consisting of a polyester resin base with organic fillers, intended to facilitate flow, and to obtain special physical
  • Laser Cutting Thin, Rigid Flex Circuits with Fiber Lasers
    Thin, rigid flex circuit is the type of material used for making a printed circuit board (PCB). It describes the board itself with no copper covering. The thin, rigid flex circuit material used in PCBs is typically UV stabilized with a tetrafunctional resin system. It is typically a yellowish color
  • Rapid parts for the long haul
    New resins for rapid prototypes can produce parts with enough durability for functional testing and even for niche end products. Robust testing of prototypes such as this hair dryer are one of the high-temperature applications well suited for ProtoTherm 12120. The photopolymer's thermal
  • Medical Device Link . Specialty Compounds for Medical Applications: An Introduction
    additives. Most engineering resins are compounded with UV stabilizers, processing aids, and reinforcing agents such as glass fibers. Thermoplastic elastomers, alloys, and blends are normally compounded in order to make up the standard grades. The compounds that result--so familiar as to be sometimes
  • Polycarbonate Enclosures 101: A Guide for Specifiers
    . Then, in the 1950's, GE and Bayer concurrently developed polycarbonate resin, and in the 1960's the new resins (Lexan for GE and Makrolon for Bayer) began finding their way into the marketplace. Due to its exceptional impact strength, machinability, formability, and UV stability, polycarbonate-based
  • Paintless parts
    . Complex geometric parts ranging in size from cell phones to large truck hoods are candidates for a recently developed in-mold decorating (IMD) process. The process coextrudes a UV-absorbent, scratch and chemical-resistant, high-gloss cap layer onto a colored substrate. The resulting material combination
  • Self-Healing spacecraft
    . Possible self-healing concepts for polymer matrix composites. A photomicrograph shows the cross section of a four-layer composite that has been damaged and then was selfhealed. The healing epoxy resin was dyed so that it would illuminate under UV light. This clearly illustrates the extent
