Self-healing nanogel composite embedded with epoxy as eco-friendly coating

Smart nanogel capsules are attracting great attention to act as self-healing materials for polymers. A research work aimed at incorporating nanogel among silicate layers of sodium montmorillonite to increase its dispersibility into an epoxy matrix so as to be used as self-healing nanocomposites.

New approaches in corrosion protection

Zinc primers protect steel constructions against corrosion. In dirty environments, their application is time consuming and not eco-friendly. A project tests whether a modification of the pigment formula can increase their effectiveness such that a reduction of the zinc concentration is possible.

Water-repairable zwitterionic polymer coatings for anti-biofouling surfaces

A team of international researchers has developed a strategy to prepare new types of zwitterionic polymer network coatings that display excellent self-healing and anti-biofouling properties.

Plant oil derived epoxy thermosets

Epoxy thermosets are used as adhesives and coatings in electronics, appliances and aircraft. But most of them are not environmentally friendly. Epoxidised plant oil thermosets are usually weak and easily break. Researchers wanted to fabricate a biobased epoxidised plant oil thermoset.

Preventing mussel adhesion using lubricant-infused materials

During marine fouling, surfaces are encrusted with scale or biological organisms, which can be expensive to remove. A group of researchers has used polymers infused with organic lubricants to prevent mussels from adhering to a submerged surface.
