This technology is currently being applied in the automotive, construction and white goods industries, where flexible materials, such as thermoplastic elastomers, are bonded
to a host surface to seal it against dust, noise, water or wind, or to provide a protective seal or cushion.
(Osterhout uses the word "film" instead of "coating" to describe his products to distinguish them from prior coatings that delaminate.) The new T-series bonded
coating, available for about a year, reduces friction and covers the protruding fibers.
A patent has been issued for a bonded
composite uased as a first thin-section element, a first layer of thin-section sheet material and a second thin-section element bonded
to the first thin-section element by bonds defining a tear-resistant bond pattern.
The new trend is a reduction in the use of Southern Bentonite for preblends, shifting to a predominately Western Bentonite bonded
green sand mold.
And the way those atoms are linked together, or chemically bonded
, determines whether your hair is curly or straight.
Intertech's Global Outlook for Polymer Bonded
Magnets 2002 conference will be held April 10-12 at the Hyatt Rosemont Hotel in Chicago, IL.
DSM Engineering Plastics is working on soft-touch surfaces of its Arnitel polyester TPE bonded
to engineering thermoplastics.
Of the foundrys and reclamation processes currently available, thermal systems are particularly suitable for the treatment of sands bonded
with organic materials.
Another widely applied model, called the molecular orbital (MO) theory, eases those computations, but only by including hard-to-visualize concepts such as bonding electronic orbitals that aren't confined between bonded
