  1. Manufacturing Methods for Sulfur Concrete Sewer Pipe

    SBC: Brimstone Pipe Company            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I research is intended to evaluate the feasibility of manufacturing low-cost, acid-resistant sanitary sewer pipe from sulfur concrete. Sulfur is an abundant mineral recovered from coking, natural gas processing, and petroleum refining. Secondary recovery of sulfur, resulting from environmental regulation, produces more material than is needed by U.S. industry. The U.S. Bureau of Mines ...

  3. Powder Injection Molding Processing Using Corn-based Biopolymers

    SBC: 8VA Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This program proposes to replace petroleum-based chemicals with formulations that are less expensive and safer to use in the environment. Critical to this goal is the incorporation of biopolymer additives require as binders for powder injection molding. Water soluble, cellulose-based polymers that have been processed from wood and cotton are also useful as binders in various ceramic manufacturin ...

  4. Unique Selected Area Deposition o Copper Onto Aluminum for Multichip Module Applications

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The inability to deposit copper directly onto aluminum is a longstanding problem in microelectronic manufacturing. Presently, aluminum must be coated with a barrier layer such as TiN to promote copper adhesion and provide good electrical contact between the two metals. This work will demonstrate a nonaqueous galvanic process for selectively depositing a highly adherent copper coating directly o ...

  5. Novel Synthesis of Fluorinated Parylenes for Low-K Interlayer Dielectric Applications in Submicron ICs

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    As IC manufacturers pursue larger wafer sizes and smaller device features (0.25 um), the interlayer dielectric material becomes critical . Current interlayer dielectric materials, inorganic oxides and spin-coated polymeric materials, have serious deficiencies (e.g.,k >3, water absorption, and spin coating defects). This has led IC manufacturers to search for low-k($6000/lb) has hampered commercial ...

  6. Increase Aircraft Visual Acuity

    SBC: Deposition Research Lab            Topic: N/A

    The application of Indium Oxide, Indium Tin Oxide and Indium Fluorine Oxide is proving useful in all applications requiring a visibly transparent electrically conductive film which requires resistance to severe temperatures, relative humidity and potentially corossive environments. Applications include but are not limitted to de-icing of automobile windshields, EMI shielding of CRT screens, f ...

  7. Portable Auditory Diagnostic System

    SBC: Kedly, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Kedley Incorporated proposes to develop a prototype portable auditory diagnostic device capable of implementing 5 major auditory diagnostic tests including pure-tone audiometry, speech audiometry, tympanometry, distortion product otoacoustic emissions, and evoked auditory brainstem potentials. These tests are now implemented with 4 separate, large and combersome devices that often share the same ...

  8. Environmentally-Safe Gluten Polymer Based Degradable Food Service Utensils

    SBC: Key Consulting Assoc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research addresses a very pragmatic issue faced by the U.S. Navy--development of environmentally-friendly, safe, disposable food service utensils to meet terms of the MARPOL Treaty and to support efforts to automate galleys aboard ships. Competitive cost has been a major hurdle for all biodegradable food service utensils publicized to date; in addition, the slow rate of degradation ha ...

  9. Elastomeric Composite Bumpers


    Production Products proposes to design and develop novel marine impact bumpers for dual use military/commercial markets using highly abrasion resistant and damage tolerant elastomeric matrix composites developed by Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division (NSWC-CD). We will build upon extensive research/development that has already been performed by the Naval community in fender/bumper des ...

  10. Alternative Heating Technology for Thermoplastic Composites and Adhesive Bond Processing


    Production Products will develop microwave/RF heating or other directed energy heating techniques for the processing of thermoplastic composites and adhesive bonds with the support of our subcontractor Southern Research Institute and our aerospace mentor McDonnell Douglas Aerospace. Use of directed energy to heat only the polymer in the composite or the bond line eliminates the need for exp ...
