Dymax Corporation’s new white paper “Dispensing Light-Curable Materials: Process Controls & Troubleshooting” discusses substrate compatibility, temperature and viscosity, and how to set up a dispense system.
Dymax explains that light-curable adhesives rapidly bond glass, metal, and plastic by curing upon exposure to energy of the proper wavelength. It says many factors can affect the controlled dispensing and processing of these materials. Its new White Paper covers syringe dispensing challenges, air bubbles and cavitation in syringes, using cartridges and pressure pots, and preventive maintenance.
In manufacturing, process controls are used to ensure that products are made to the highest standard possible. Dymax explains that, when effective procedures are laid out for each step in the manufacturing process, it's much easier to reduce the risk of damage, failure, and loss. The White Paper can be downloaded from the Dymax website.
The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) has announced the Phase I completion of a project led by DuPont, partnering with Fibrtec and Purdue University, focused on the creation of a new carbon fibre composite manufacturing process that exhibits improved fabric formability characteristics compared to traditional woven materials.
Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
As part of its mission to address composites end-use industries, JEC Group is investing in composites showcases at key automotive events worldwide.
