SCIGRIP Smarter Adhesive Solutions (Washington, UK), a supplier of adhesive solutions, is re-launching its POWERCAN dispensing system, in compliance with the fluorinated greenhouse gasses regulation 517/2014. Available in 100 ml or 200 ml sizes, POWERCAN delivers controlled dosing for high-viscosity and difficult-to-handle materials such as sealants, adhesives, fillers, lubricants and pastes. POWERCAN works through a self-dispensing application method and features a “twist and lock system,” along with an overcap that inhibits the curing process and prevents nozzles from drying out. A sealed design ensures 0% contamination, 0% waste and can be dispensed in vertical, horizontal and upturned positions. SCIGRIP branded products currently available in the POWERCAN format include RTV851 silicone sealant and gasket maker, RTV853 high-temperature silicone sealant and gasket maker, RTV854 grey oxime silicone sealant and EXP858 exhaust assembly paste.

BMW AG's Dingolfing, Germany, auto manufacturing facility is well known for churning out a variety of car models and types, and the 7 Series is among them, famous for its steel/aluminum/composites construction. Does this car represent the optimum of composites use in vehiicles? This plant tour of the Dingolfing plant looks at how composites on the 7 Series come together.
A sheet molding compound renaissance highlights new reinforcements, new fillers, new matrices, new opportunities.
Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive.
