Nano-sensor can measure tension of tissue fibres

Nano-sensor can measure tension of tissue fibres
Bacteria are able to attach themselves to tissue fibres with the aid of a ‘nano-adhesive’. Just how they achieve this was investigated a few years ago by Viola Vogel, Professor of Applied Mechanobiology, using computer simulations at CSCS. The researchers simulated how the bacterial nano-adhesive – a peptide thread with several binding sites strung together like pearls – adheres to what are called fibronectin fibres.

Superior adhesive performance discovered in plasma surface treatment

Superior adhesive performance discovered in plasma surface treatment
In recent work conducted by engineers at Intertronics’ partners Relyon Plasma, it has been demonstrated that the substantial increases in bond strength achievable with the use of plasma surface treatment, can improve adhesion on many substrates, including those which are seen as difficult to bond. Plasma surface treatment can enable otherwise impractical bonds and improve assembly performance, while saving time and money in the concept-to-market cycle.

Electrically conductive die attach adhesive

Electrically conductive die attach adhesive
Master Bond EP3HTSDA-1 is a single part, no mix epoxy adhesive designed primarily for die attach applications. It exhibits a die shear strength of 20-22 kg-f and has a high thermal conductivity. “This 100% solids formulation has an ideal viscosity and flow for die attach, will not ‘tail’ and can be easily dispensed automatically” says Rohit Ramnath, senior product engineer. “Additionally it has an unlimited working life at room temperature and will cure in 20-30 minutes at 250°F or 5-10 minutes at 300°F.”
