Preparing alginate flame retardants for epoxy resins

In a study, researchers have evaluated the efficacy of a novel biomass flame retardant based on alginic acid in combination with a reactive phosphorus-silicon compound in epoxy resins.

Modifying bitumen emulsions with triblock copolymer latex

Bitumen emulsions have often been modified by styrene-butadiene rubber latex. The modified bitumen can have excellent low-temperature cracking resistance, but rutting resistance at high temperature still remains poor.

Intumescent coatings formulated with vegetable compounds

Intumescent coatings protect steel structures against fire due to the formation of a protective carbonaceous layer. One of the main components of these systems is carbon, which usually comes from non-renewable sources. Therefore, the development of more eco-friendly alternatives is essential.

Switching from superhydrophobicity to underwater superoleophobicity

Smart surfaces with switchable water/oil wettability has great research and application value. In a paper, scientists present transparent smart surfaces with pH-responsive water wettability in air and oil wettability in water via grafting pH-responsive block copolymers on an inverse opal film.

”UV-Led has gained higher acceptance“

The most important fields in which the use of UV-LED technology has increased are wood coatings and printing inks. We spoke to Frédéric Taché and Charles Bourrousse of Sartomer about the current state of the art in UV-LED technology and UV-curable adhesives.

Water-based acrylic coatings reinforced by PISA-derived fibers

Polymerisation-induced self-assembly (PISA) is an efficient approach to synthesise self-assembled core-shell nanofibers in water, made of amphiphilic block copolymers.

Overcoming a variety of substrates

Scientists have investiged the adhesion mechanisms of ticks. On the basis of their experiments conclusions can be drawn about the equipment of future technical surfaces with anti-adhesion effect.

Innovative approach to 3D concrete printing

Australian scientists have developed an innovative approach to the 3D printing of concrete using cement and geopolymer binding. The technology has the potential to change the way we build with concrete, saving costs in formworks and allowing freeform construction.

Mucin coatings as efficent tool to fight ocular dryness

With a prevalence of more than 10%, the dry eye syndrome is one of the most frequent forms of ocular diseases. Among contact lens wearers, this condition occurs even more often. Therefore, purified porcine gastric mucins can be used as artificial tears and molecular coating for contact lenses.
