Abstract:

A newly patented technology is emerging which will help American manufacturers produce goods faster and more affordably. Additionally, manufacturers can use it to diversify their product lines by making complex parts quickly and efficiently. Its called Electroset Technology EST. With Est, standard casting resins are modified to be electrically semiconductive while they are in their fluid state. Electroset resins are electrically polarizable particles immersed within and suspended throughout casting resins. Because they are semiconductive in their fluid state, electric energy can be applied to and through these resins during cure to do useful work. Electroset processing of materials
