I am very excited to be sitting down with Dr. Patrick Hager next week. Pat retired from 3M, where he served as a corporate scientist and worked on thin films and adhesives, among other things. He has a highly interesting approach to success in a corporate world, and has successfully created several patents during his career. Please let me know what you would like me to ask him!
I have lots of questions for you and I nailed down as below.
- Adhesion solution for a space mission. Are there any kine of both side tape for space?
- The glue between metal to glass, thin polymer(10-50 um thickness) to glass. What type of epoxy is the golden rule for difference CTE material?
- People want to have low adhesion sometimes. (e.g., molding process) Does 3M have the answer for anti-adhesion as well? (spray or coating ?)
I’m really looking forward to your podcast!
