Ultrasounds are acoustic waves with frequencies that are higher than the human detectable range, which are used to detect objects and distances. This technology is used in a wide range of applications including medical imaging, detection of flaws in objects, oil and gas exploration and in many other chemical processes. The non-destructive nature of this technology makes it extremely unique.
Ultrasound uses a piezoelectric actuator that generates the sound waves. These waves are then directed by an acoustic lens, filtered and matched through a backing layer and then detected to form an image. Such systems require special properties and Master Bond makes a wide range of products that are used in these specialty applications. Our custom formulated products are used for acoustical matching and blocking, thermal management, chip bonding, underfill as well as potting and coating PZT structures. Proper compounding with special resins, acoustic fillers will affect the product density, leading to improved image resolution for sensitive probes. These products are available in varying viscosities and hardness to meet the precise needs of acoustical engineers.
