Following from the SET-plan priorities, it is proposed to improve the VVER safety-efficiency balance by means of ensuring the hermeticity of fuel element (FE) claddings based on the creep energy theory method (CET-method) [5, 6], in order to minimize the radioactive leakage through fuel claddings into the VVER circuit, for normal operation conditions including variable loading modes.
Whether producing primary packaging for food, non-food or liquids, or secondary/tertiary packaging to collate and protect goods during transportation, the industry in the Middle East region and globally demands excellent pack hermeticity, abuse resistance, and aesthetics to ensure maximum protection for the contents, enhanced shelf-life and appeal and a positive consumer experience.
High Corrosion, migration, reduced insulation, electrical Temperature, bridges and leakage; polymer, protective coating, Humidity, plastic package deterioration and aging; cross talks, (reverse) shorts, electrical and hermeticity leakage.
Its unsurpassed hermeticity protects organic materials, which are extremely sensitive to moisture and oxygen.
In aerospace applications, adhesives are a non-starter because they lose hermeticity bonding capacity over time, especially when subjected to high heat and cold and rapid pressure changes.

Green, an industry recognized hermeticity expert with over 29 years of microelectronics manufacturing including prior experience with Lockheed Martin Astro Space and USAF Rome Laboratories.
Hermeticity is also a characteristic of a quality sensor - because the electronics are isolated from the surrounding atmosphere.
Silicon joined to silicon would permit the perfect match of identical materials, enable efficient wafer-level processing and provide hermeticity in a chip-scale package.
The caveat is that MEMS issues such as hermeticity and package-related stress may limit which of the semiconductor industry practices can realistically be adopted.
