Shape memory composite self-healing coatings for corrosion protection

A shape memory composite (SMC) coating with a self-healing ability was prepared by a facile method based on a thermoresponsive shape memory polymer (SMP) that utilised carnauba wax microparticles as healing agent.

Efficient antifouling properties based on hydrogel layer of polyacrylamide coatings

Pursuit of robust antifouling coatings is a persistent objective for marine materials. Researchers investigated a series of polyacrylamide resins with a self-generating hydrogel layer, arising from the polymerisation of acrylamide (AM), butyl acrylate, methacrylic acid and AM derivatives.

Partitioning properties of silicone for passive sampling of PCB in indoor air

The former use of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in construction materials can lead to elevated indoor air concentrations. Danish researchers studied the partitioning of PCB congeners between indoor air and silicone with a view to establish passive sampling of PCBs.

Using layered double hydroxides to reduce VOCs from bituminous materials

The VOC emissions of various types of molecules from bituminous materials were detected and analysed by means of thermogravimetric-mass spectrometry (TG-MS) analysis.

Identifying non-compliant vehicle repair basecoats

The British Coatings Federation (BCF) has launched a major campaign to ensure solvent-based basecoats in vehicle repairs are used in a compliant way.
