A video tutorial about bonding the MFC to a glass fiber composite. The tutorial walks you through the steps how to prepare the MFC for bonding and explains three different methods to cure the MFC after attaching it to the glass fiber composite. The methods shown in this video tutorial can be also used for different substrate materials.Issue date June 2019 on Smart Material's YouTube channel, Video length 6:54
A perfect bond line between the MFC and the host structure is essential for the high performance actuation of a structure using MFC type actuators. For this, we highly recommend using the common composite vacuum bagging technique.Issue date June 2015
A conductive layer is often required on PZT (lead zirconium titanate) ceramic tube material, to allow soldering. This technical note is using the standard Smart Material tube with 1.1 mm OD and 0.5 mm ID and about 10cm long. Plating is required inside the bore.Issue date February 2009
