Adhesion, Adhesion Failure and BONDiT™(Paper)

Abstract - Bonding polymers to metals for underwater environments. Adhesive function. Adhesive failure and reasons for same. BONDiT™ system description. Water break free test. (21 page document). View pdf version.

Breakthrough Advances in Cable Termination Technology (Paper)

Abstract – New molding materials and technology lead to breakthroughs in terminating and splicing cables for harsh environments. Simplicity is key – simple surface preparation and no primers, even for substrates of polyethylene, polyolefin, polyurethane, and rubber. The new technology provides high moisture and chemical resistance, reliability, cost reductions and faster turn-around. True water blocking for deep sea deployment is achieved, even for on-board ship repairs of looded cables. Examples of results in naval and marine applications illustrate that the versatility achieved in design engineering and application is extraordinary (4 pages).
