VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday beginning at noon on Wednesday, November 22, through Friday, November 24, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience, and happy holidays!
Employment of metal-modified polyimide to achieve optimum conductance at an aluminum joint
Earlier research relating to the use of polyimides modified with
metal-ion complexes and metal particles indicate that enhanced conductivity
and adhesive strength can be achieved.
This research evaluated the employment of metal-modified polyimides
to achieve optimum conductance at an aluminum joint. Condensation and
addition polyimides were employed. The modification of the polyimides
occurred in two ways. The first method involved homogeneous doping of
the condensation polyimides with metal-ion complexes. The second
modification method involved heterogeneous doping of condensation or
addition polyimides with particles of a nickel-aluminum alloy.
