Influence of inorganic binder on the photocatalytic oxidation of acrylic latex

Paints and coatings have been considered as effective materials to overcome the air impurities in mega cities. In a research the influence of inorganic binder on photocatalytic oxidation and degradation of nano/micro TiO2 containing acrylic composites was studied.

Reduction of moisture susceptibility of cold asphalt mixtures

A laboratory study investigated the effect of reducing moisture susceptibility of cutback asphalt mixture by adding Portland cement and bentonite, a nanoclay capable of absorbing water and sealing cracks through swelling.

Effective prevention of rain erosion on rotor blades

When operating, the wing tip of a wind turbine can reach speeds of 300 to 350 km/h and, as a result, rain drops act like sandpaper on the surface of the material. Researchers are developing reliable forecasting models for erosion damage to improve the effectiveness of protective mechanisms.

Novel acrylic-fluorine networks for pressure sensitive adhesives

The objective of a study was to design novel acrylic-fluorine networks as the replacement of fluorinated polyacylate for pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) applications.

Effect of biocidal coatings on microfouling

Researchers have exposed biocidal coatings to marine bacteria and diatoms and studied their effect on cells adhesion and biofilm formation in different conditions of immersion.

Thermoresponsive sealant for temporary closure of ocular trauma

Traumatic eye injuries require rapid treatment to prevent deterioration of vision. As an alternative to suturing or adhesives, researchers developed a temperature-responsive synthetic hydrogel that acts as a temporary sealant.

Understanding the influence of wood substrates on the permeability of coatings

The shift towards waterborne coatings makes coatings more sensitive to water. As a consequence, the durability of both wood and coatings can be negatively affected. The aim of a study was to elucidate the influence of wooden substrates on the water permeability of the coating applied to it.

Potential of the plant oleander as green antifouling technology

One challenge to commercialisation of natural antifoulants is to find effective substances from flora and fauna with sufficient amount available. In a study, four cardenolides were isolated from the widely distributed plant oleander and evaluated for antifouling activity against barnacle settlement.

Effect of nano-pigments on the corrosion resistance of epoxy coatings

In a work, researchers have combined the desirable colour characteristics of cationic dyes and the good barrier properties of organoclays by synthesising hybrid dye-clay nano-pigments.
