9 Physical Review Letters, creates a magnetic form of graphene by precisely placing it above a magnetic, insulating compound
. It's the first time researchers have magnetized graphene while also preserving the ultrathin material's other tantalizing properties, such as the super-speed of electrons coursing through it.
Kuka Systems' Sam technology allows automakers to use an acrylate acoustic insulating compound
for vehicle sound-proofing, applied by a robotic cell, in place of the traditional bitumen or butyl mats that have to be custom-cut and hand-positioned.
MIL-I-46058, Insulating Compound
, Electrical for Coating Printed Circuit Assemblies, is an older military specification that lists technical criteria for conformal coating characteristics.
Preventing this by cavity wall insulation is a far bigger project, although it causes little disruption since the insulating compound
is injected through holes drilled from outside.
The conformal material qualification standard IPC-CC-830, Qualification & Performance of Electrical Insulating Compound
for Printed Board Assemblies has been in use since 1984 (revision B released in August 2002) and features a number of assembly standards addressing coverage requirements.
Injection Molding: The body of the heat sink is first injection molded using thermally conductive but electrically insulating compounds
such as PolyOne's Therma-Tech thermal-management materials.
With lead being the "historically" primary stabilization component in a wide variety of insulating compounds
, agencies such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL) have expressed their intentions to require that wire and cable manufacturers resubmit product made with these compounds in order to maintain their existing types of approvals.
