Abstract:… are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic air gaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare proposes to develop a hermetic garment closure system that seals… more
Abstract:…Surface storage of such materials is not ideal. The cost of the required wells (drilling and completion) is estimated at $20-$40 million each and hundreds of such wells are needed for the volumes of waste amassed to date. Methods to lower cost and add additional layers of … more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Dracula Pipette is a co-axial embryo microinjection tool, with the injection pipette presented from inside the holding pipette. Double nested tips seal against the surface of the spherical embryo when a vacuum is applied in the space… more
Abstract:This project will develop high performance sealing plugs for use in deep borehole disposal of nuclear waste and commercial wells. The technology provides a high strength, high corrosion resistant well sealing material superior to conventional cements.
Abstract:Leaky wells are a problem in the oil & amp; gas as well as the geologic carbon sequestration industry. We are developing biologically produced minerals (biocement) to seal potential leakage pathways to ensure environmentally friendly production and storage operations.
Abstract:The high energy physics (HEP) community, the scientific and medical communities and the public at large, require the availability of high sensitivity photo- sensors with improved spatial and temporal resolution that can be scaled to large areas, and manufactured in a robust, durable, and compact… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: There are many ways to improve night vision goggle performance, but that is often overlooked is the faceplate, which serves both as a substrate for the photocathode as well as a method for sealing the tube for high vacuum. It is usually made from Corning 7056 glass. … more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project enables an innovative low cost approach to reaction bonded silicon carbide (RBSC). RBSC is a preferred material for mechanical seals, which are critical, costly components in many major manufacturing lines. The high… more
Abstract:… Air Force applications. There are many benefits to EHC such as providing an excellent wear surface, a good corrosion barrier and it allows for surface restoration to dimensional tolerances during the repair and overhaul process. EHC also provides a good sealing surface for… more

Abstract:Luna Innovations and its team members are implementing advanced material alternatives in traditional rotorcraft magnetic seal assemblies for direct Army platform applications. Specifically, the team is improving the mated pair combination of the carbon-graphite face seal… more
Abstract:Rotating-to-static seals are critical components of all gas turbine engines. The seals can significantly affect the efficiency, operability, and durability of a gas turbine engine. As such, any improvements to these seals are highly desirable. Improvements… more
Abstract:… Using iCVD, GVD and optimize PTFE’s surface energy, adhesion, and durability during deposition. GVD’s iCVD deposition process has zero hazardous emissions. There are a wide variety of markets and application for GVD’s mold release coating, including seals and gaskets,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Eden Medical proposes to develop a Self-Sealing Therapy Ostomy Pouch (S2TOP) to stop leakage that leads to skin breakdown and trauma for ostomy care patients. The S2TOP will detect leakage, inform the patient, and prevent leakage occurrence… more
Abstract:… anticipated for advanced amphibious assault vehicles (AAAVs); 3) survivability after impact from RPG type munitions, larger API projectiles (e.g., 14.5 mm), and fragmenting munitions, as well as the hydrodynamic ram forces created by threat impact; and 4) self-sealing against… more
Abstract:…ds. The valve packing gland is used to prevent water from leaking past the stem. The corrosion occurring on the valve stem can compromise the packing gland and lead to a leaking valve. The packing is a graphite bushing that is relatively soft and capable of sealing around the… more

Abstract:There is a Global Safeguards need for tamper-indicating coatings of varying complexity for use in the verification and authentication of nuclear security documents, materials, and equipment; however, current commercial coatings for anti-tampering seals lack the sophistication… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
