Sonochemistry for coatings

When ultrasonic waves collapse near a solid surface, microjets are being formed directed towards the solid surface. These microjets are moving at very high speeds. This phenomenon can be used forcoatings nanoparticles on metals, polymers, glasses, ceramics, textiles, and paper. Prof. Aharon Gedanken of Bar-Ilan University, Israel, explains the mechanism of sonochemistry and comments on thebenefits of this method.

Low e-coatings for improved thermal insulation

Low e-coatings emit only low amounts of thermal radiation into the surroundings and can therefore be used to improve the thermal insulation of a wall construction, for example. Dr. Jochen Manara,Bavarian Center for Applied Energy Research, talks about polymer-based pigment coatings on flexible substrates with spectrally selective characteristics to improve thermal properties.

Novel photoinitiators prevent migration

Inks and lacquers for food packaging are cured by irradiation with UV light and contain, besides reactive oligomers, photo initiators to start the curing reaction. Now, new photo initiators thatprevent migration have been developed.
