Double crosslinking for greater efficiency

A new polyurethane solution introduces two crosslinking mechanisms to increase robustness of the system. The combination of UV and oxidative crosslinking mechanisms also improves drying times, which reduces energy consumption during application.

How do recycled concrete aggregates modify the self-healing properties?

A paper presents the main results of a research carried out to analyse the mechanical properties, shrinkage and the self-healing potential of concrete incorporating recycled aggregates.

Super adhesive made from intestinal bacteria

Scientists have reprogrammed strains of the intestinal bacteria Escherichia Coli in such a way that the biological underwater adhesive of mussels can be created with help of the bacteria.

Synthetic microspheres for antireflective coatings

Since the early discovery of the antireflection properties of insect compound eyes, new examples of natural antireflective coatings have been rare. In a study, researchers report the fabrication and optical characterisation of a biologically inspired antireflective surface.

Superhydrophobic coating with multiscale structures

To obtain a superhydrophobic surface with hierarchical micro/nanostructures, two kinds of SiO2 nanoparticles with different sizes were embedded into crosslinked silanised polyacrylate. The developed coatings showed three outstanding characteristics.

Bio-based coatings: Sustainability 2.0

The transition from solvent-borne to water-borne coatings has been at the core of sustainability efforts by the coatings industry. Experts from all over Europe recently met to discuss the next step: How can the industry now transition from oil to renewable raw materials?

Customisation and optimisation of high-barrier laminates using simulation models

New analytical and numerical models are enabling the customized design of lacquers and high-barrier laminates. They allow the effect of alternating inorganic layers and organic (lacquer) layers on the permeation to be calculated, so reducing the experimental work required.

Bioadhesive derived from distillers' dried grains with solubles

In a study, a bioadhesive is prepared from distillers' dried grains with solubles (DDGS). The byproduct of corn ethanol production is used primarily as an alternative animal feed thanks to its high protein content and low cost.

New coating offers enhanced fire and corrosion protection

A few extra coats of ‘paint’ could be all that the steel in a building needs to prevent itself from buckling and failing in a fire. After two years of research and development, scientists have invented a 3-in-1 coating that offers enhanced fire and corrosion protection.
