Surface degradation of a nanosilica/polyurethane coating under UV exposure

The goal of a study is to investigate the process of surface degradation and potential particle release from a commercial nanosilica/polyurethane coating under accelerated UV exposure.

New coating to revolutionise water proofing

Scientists have developed a new protective coating that could eventually be used to waterproof mobile phones, prevent ice from forming on aeroplanes or protect boat hulls from corroding.

Making metal surfaces strong, resistant, and multifunctional

Through a novel process, metals can permanently be joined with nearly all other materials, become water-repellent, or improve their biocompatibility. The pre-treatment of ships' hulls before painting could thus be rendered unnecessary.

Rheological behaviour of silver nanowire conductive inks during screen printing

The rheological behaviour of silver nanowire (AgNW) suspensions adapted for screen printing inks was investigated by researchers from University of New Hampshire.

Quantum physics inside a drop of paint

Inside a drop of paint, light is scattered so often that it seems impossible to demonstrate quantum effects. But despite the thousands of possible paths the light can take, like a drunk person inside a labyrinth, researchers now show that there are just two exits.

Nanotechnology to improve surface properties of materials

Five technology centres have developed new coatings for plastics, wood, metal, ceramics and glass, which allow giving new properties to these traditional materials.

Investigating mechanical properties of a photocatalytic pseudo-paint

Photocatalytic oxidative paints (e.g., a paint containing nano-TiO2) are used to break down volatile organic compounds to CO2 by photooxidation reactions.

Dispersing inorganic nanoparticles in polymeric materials

The in situ surface modification of inorganic nanoparticles (NPs) and its influence on the size, morphology, and particle surface properties is increasingly receiving attention.
