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.
