All Weather Adhesive Tape for Exterior Bonding Applications in Cold or Extreme Weather Conditions

All Weather Adhesive Tape for Exterior Bonding Applications in Cold or Extreme Weather Conditions

Most adhesive tapes require a minimum application temperature of 15°C, meaning winter can pose a problem for exterior bonding applications due to cold or extreme weather conditions. [More]
UC Biologists Study Gecko Adhesive System for Downhill Locomotion

UC Biologists Study Gecko Adhesive System for Downhill Locomotion

University of California biologists have discovered that geckos are able to smoothly climb downhill because of their ability to alter the orientation of their feet. They selected the Chondrodactylus bibronii (gecko) for the research due to its preference for different habitats and as it does not have functional claws. [More]
SCHOTT Expands Range of Sealing Glasses for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Applications

SCHOTT Expands Range of Sealing Glasses for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Applications

The international technology group SCHOTT offers a broad range of sealing glasses for use in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). These glass solders help to hermetically seal cells and stacks that consist of metallic and ceramic compounds. They are used with nearly all types of fuel cells and provide significant advantages, especially for high-temperature SOFCs, due to their high resistance to heat. [More]
Moisture Plays a Crucial Role in Bonding Failures

Moisture Plays a Crucial Role in Bonding Failures

Materials that are firmly bonded together with epoxy and other tough adhesives are ubiquitous in modern life — from crowns on teeth to modern composites used in construction. Yet it has proved remarkably difficult to study how these bonds fracture and fail, and how to make them more resistant to such failures. [More]
