New Method Developed for Reliable and High Performance Glass-Ceramic-to-Metal Seals

New Method Developed for Reliable and High Performance Glass-Ceramic-to-Metal Seals

Stainless steel contains components that protect it from rough environments encountered in the defense and aerospace industries. These components need paths that allow electricity to power and interact with them. The paths require a genuine insulation seal to prevent them from contacting the metal case, which can limit the communication and power lines. [More]
