In a recent study published in the journal Materials, researchers from the Czech Republic developed hybrid prepreg tapes (rectangular cross-section) from glass multifilament roving (circular cross-section) and epoxy matrix using controlled mechanical spreading technology.
Master Bond EP4S-80 is a one component silver filled epoxy which meets NASA low outgassing requirements. It has an unlimited working life at room temperature and a moderate heat cure requirement of 80°C.
Up to 90% of patients who undergo open abdominal or pelvic surgery develop postoperative adhesions, or scar tissue. Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgical approaches can reduce the severity of the adhesions, but the scar tissue still forms. The cellular response to injury -; even intentional injury, such as surgery to repair a problem -; results in a cascade of molecules pouring to the site to heal the tissue.
The latest research in MDPI Applied Mechanics by Italian researchers focuses on assessing the effects of curing on photosensitive resins via stereolithography (SLA) additive manufacturing.
Increased awareness and popularity surrounding the use of metals in additive manufacturing presents some interesting opportunities for numerous industries including aerospace and medical fields, as considered in new research in the journal Metals.
Combining additive manufacturing, or 3D printing with new sustainable materials, allows for a more flexible and resource-efficient production.
Master Bond EP62-1HTMed is a two part epoxy that meets the requirements of ISO 10993-5 for non-cytotoxicity and therefore can be utilized in many medical device applications.
Blue mussels, scientifically known as Mytilus edulis, spend their days being buffeted by harsh waves. The creatures manage to stay adhered to the rocks or to their fellow mussels. This is due to the highly effective underwater glue produced by them.
On 22nd and 23rd September, the Aerospace Additive Manufacturing Summit (AAMS) the international business summit dedicated to Additive Manufacturing in the aerospace industry will bring together, during two days, at the MEETT in Toulouse, France, most of the key players in this field: manufacturers, suppliers, major companies, SMEs, small companies and researchers.
Master Bond EP5G-80 is a one component, NASA low outgassing rated epoxy, with a moderate temperature cure requirement of 80 °C for 4 hours.
