S-Bond Technologies is now being used by Mercedes Benz for its thermal management components.
- Philadelphia, PA-NJ (1888PressRelease) September 18, 2010 - S-Bond Technologies has been adopted by Mercedes Benz High Performance Engines (MBHPE) for use in thermal management components for its Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) in its Formula 1 race cars. S-Bond is joining aluminum fin to aluminum bases that attach to and cool the electric drive's electrical power conversion modules. The heat transfer interfaces provided by S-Bond were 98% void free and yielded excellent thermal cooling performance.
S-Bond Technologies, LLC was spun out of Materials Resources International in 2004 to commercialize its active solder technology. Since then S-Bond Technologies (SBT) has consistently grown as applications for S-Bond joining has grown. MRi and S-Bond Technologies were started and are led by Dr. Ronald Smith who has spent 10 years at GE Gas Turbine and GE Aircraft Engine, then spent 10 years at Drexel University as a Research Professor before starting MRi and SBT.
