Studying the shelf-life of cement blended with redispersible polymer powder

German and Argentinian researchers studied the shelf-life of cement blended with redispersible polymer powder (RDP) used in drymix mortars after exposure to an atmosphere of elevated temperature (40 ± 1°C) and moisture (90 ± 3%RH) simulated in a climate chamber.

Quantifying sea-water exposed mortar through a simple permeability test

Concrete has an autogenous ability to heal cracks potentially contributing to its functional water tightness and durability.

Antifouling performance of UV-curable methacrylated PDMS/PEG coatings

Chinese researchers investigated the temperature-dependent phase-segregation behaviour and antifouling performance of UV-curable methacrylated PDMS/PEG coatings.

Flake-type nanoparticles of zinc-phosphate increase corrosion protection

Research scientists developed a special type of flake-like zinc-phosphate nanoparticles. These nanoparticles are ten times as long as they are thick. As a result of this anisotropy, the penetration of gas molecules into the metal is slowed down.

Characterisation of urethane co-oligomers containing pendant fluoroalkyl ether groups

Coatings with the ability to minimise adhesion of insect residue and other debris are of great interest for future aircraft.

Smart TiO2 nanocomposites for self-cleaning coatings of ship hulls

The remarkable surface properties and favorable environmental effects of non-stick, silicone-based, and fouling release (FR) coatings have supported their economic and ecological applications in the marine shipping industry since organotin compounds have been banned.

Synthesis and characterisation of superhydrophobic-superoleophilic surface

Researchers have successfully achieved a binary superhydrophobic-superhydrophilic surface by a combination of nanoscale texture roughness on micro-textured cotton thread network by layer-by-layer deposition method through the single-step sol-gel route.

XRF measurements of tin, copper and zinc in antifouling paints

Swedish researchers have used a new XRF application for analysing metals in antifouling paints on leisure boats.

Early age carbonation curing for precast reinforced concretes

Carbonation is considered detrimental to reinforced concrete. However if carbonation is performed at early age through curing, the process could be beneficial.
