Novel Sealants to significantly improve the lifetime and performance of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

The quest for better energy efficiency is intensifying in 2016; the year in which the Paris climate conference agreement is presented for signature at the UN in New York. Developers are increasingly looking to Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) to help reduce the carbon emissions associated with electricity generation because of its high conversion efficiency and suitability for distributed generation. Whereas conventional power station/transmission setups are limited to a maximum of 35% efficiency, SOFCs can achieve 60% and more. SOFCs also have the added benefits of long-term stability, a high fuel flexibility and a relatively low cost. The high efficiency...

Fluorescent Glass Applications

Fluorescent Glass Applications   Fluorescent glass powders and spheres can be used in a wide variety of applications such as medical imaging, biomedical diagnostics and research, testing media, tracing and art glass enamels. Fluorescent glass is unique in that it can appear ordinary under visible light and then can emit vivid colors when excited by certain wavelengths. MO-SCI Corporation offers fluorescent glasses in a variety of colors and excitation wavelengths and emission wavelengths. Microspheres are available in sizes from approximately 10 micron up to 600 micron. Frit powders are available in size ranges as low as a few micron up...

Glass Microspheres as Bondline Spacers

Glass microspheres have a wide array of uses in many different applications. The glass spheres are utilized in numerous industry applications from research, medicine, aerospace, and adhesive to name a few. The spheres are generally a few microns up to mm sized in diameter. Glass spheres have a low thermal conductivity which makes them suitable for high temperature applications and solid spheres have high compression strengths to withstand certain mechanical pressures. Precision glass microspheres with high spherical quality and narrow particle size distributions can be highly effective in adhesive applications as bondline spacers to maintain a controlled gap. The crush...
