Superhydrophobic coatings made from polydimethylsiloxane and wax

Scientists recently reported the preparation of a composite suspension coating from biocompatible carnauba wax and polydimethylsiloxane, and demonstrated its superhydrophobicity and resistance to water impact.

Multifunctional cementitious materials

A new study focuses on the material design and electromechanical behaviour of new multifunctional strain-hardening cementitious materials (MSCs) that integrate tensile ductility with self-sensing functionality.

Fire retardant coatings: “Many raw materials you traditionally add actually bring you in the wrong direction”

Coatings play a crucial role to protect us from the devastation that fires can bring. However, developing coatings that can prevent or slow down a spreading fire is very challenging. We spoke with Jens Ravnsbæk from Teknos, how to tackle those challenges and what trends he sees for fire retardant coatings.

Design of salt-responsive and regenerative antibacterial polymer brushes

In a current work, scientists proposed to integrate salt-responsive polyDVBAPS (poly(3-(dimethyl(4-vinylbenzyl) ammonio)propyl sulfonate)), antifouling polyHEAA (poly(N-hydroxyethyl acrylamide)), and bactericidal TCS (triclosan) into single surfaces.
