The more information that the customer can provide regarding the resin's ultimate operating conditions—temperature range, likely chemical exposures, and so on— the better. See you next time for more resin- related tech tips. If you have any questions for us, please get in touch.

If the resin is not mixed for long enough, then the resin may not cure, or it will have a patchy cure. In the case of filled resin systems, some sedimentation might have taken place over time, so it might take a little more mixing to ensure that the fillers are correctly distributed throughout the resin. With the opti- cally clear resins, they will appear hazy when first mixed but this is perfectly normal and the haziness will disappear as the material reacts. Conclusion Every customer and project is different. While we can advise a customer as to which products are best suited to their needs, based on our years of experience, it all boils down to the unit, the dispensing method/equipment to be used, the curing times, and the temperature AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of advanced electronic components and interconnect, sensor, control, and antenna solutions, announced that its AVX/Ethertronics Korea team has completed the devel- opment and mass production of the first ultra-wideband (UWB) antenna solutions to be integrated into Samsung Electronics products. Featured in the new Galaxy Note20 Series, which consists of new 6.7" Galaxy Note20 5G, 6.9" Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, and Galaxy Z Fold2 smart- phones and was recently unveiled at the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked virtual event, the new high-performance UWB antennas are the result of a strategic partnership and collaboration with Samsung and enable faster, more effective and efficient communica- tion between devices. Manufactured using a flexible printed circuit laminate with low-per- mittivity (low-DK/DF) materials, the new UWB antennas require very lit- tle power to transmit large amounts of data at up to 8Mbit per second over ultra-wideband frequencies of 6.2GHz–6.7GHz and 7.7GHz–8.2GHz at close-range dis- tances up to 10m. The efficient new UMB antennas also accurately detect other IoT devices within 30cm, provid- ing Galaxy Note20 and Galaxy Z Fold2 users with faster, more efficient and secure communication. "The new UWB antennas imbue the latest generation of Samsung's flagship Galaxy Series smartphones with the ability to deliver the high-speed, high-bandwidth perfor- mance necessary to support today's vast array of con- nected applications while consuming minimal power in order to help further prolong battery life," said Jeffrey Hil- bert, Global Manager and Senior Direc- tor, AVX Antenna/Ethertronics. "We are extremely proud to be a strategic antenna partner to Samsung and to have had the opportunity to both col- laborate on the first UWB antennas to be integrated into their proven prod- uct line and supply the main commu- nication band antennas for their new Galaxy Note20, Galaxy Z Fold2, and Galaxy Buds Live products."
