A transparent coating designed to combat soiling on solar panels is in development at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Thanks to new dynamic materials developed at the University of Illinois, removable paint and self-healing plastics soon could be household products.
A novel method enables manufacturing of polymer layers with tailor-made properties and multiple functions.
The 2nd European Technical Coatings Congress entitled "New Functions and Sustainability – Drivers for Future Coatings” will take place from 3 to 5 September 2014 in Cologne, Germany.
Self-healing polymer is based on a poly(urea-urethane) type composition and can spontaneously and independently repair itself without any intervention.
Remarkable wetting properties and the ability to self-clean oil droplets is a combination for functional coatings researchers look for. The leather jacket fish serves as a blueprint.
No more beetles crawling your windowscreen? No cockroach on the bathroom tiles and no ants hiking up the facades? Researchers found out the influence of cell forms and microstructures of anti-adhesive surfaces.
Scientists have discovered how the red-eyed insects keep their wings clean and free from contaminants.
Speakers of the European Coatings Conference "Façade coatings and plasters” state a clear future for building concepts.
What can the military learn from a common squid? A lot about how to hide from enemies. Researchers took this example from mother nature for a camouflage coating
