The following is work done by the first satellite team.
Li-Ion See the li-ion destructive battery test results (PDF) provided by the StenSat group.
The silicone elastomer provides significant bond strength with the flexibility to accommodate a mismatch in thermal coefficients of expansion between the cells and substrate while meeting strict out-gassing standards. At about $430 per 250 gram kit, this material is expensive, but each cell requires only about 2.5 grams of adhesive.
NuSil is located in Goleta, CA and Franco, a helpful technician, can be reached at 805-566-4127. Training in the mixing and application of this material may be arranged at the Goleta location. SP120 (PDF) is the primer used with the CV-2566 and should also be purchased from NuSil (about $10 per bottle). Use SP 120 to clean the sides of the substrate and CIC where they will both be connected to each other.
Also obtain laboratory grade isopropyl alcohol.
