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.

Researchers develop anti-ice coatings

A current goal is the production of durable, industrially-viable coatings which function by reducing ice adhesion forces rather than by completely preventing the formation of ice.

Properties of a novel corn-zein coating structure

Biopolymers offer a noticeable potential of replacing conventional petroleum based polymers in food packaging materials. Protein based biopolymers including corn zein can be processed into films andform an excellent barrier to gases and a moderate barrier to water vapor. Dr. Funda Tihminlioglu, Izmir Institute of Technology, Turkey, explains her study of a novel corn-zein coating structure onpolypropylene films as an alternative water vapor and oxygen-barrier for flexible packaging.

Coating kills safely MRSA bacteria on contact

In tests, 100 percent of MRSA in solution were killed within 20 minutes of contact with a surface painted with latex paint laced with the coating.

Review focuses on self-healing properties

Novel diols tailor-made for polyurethane coatings

In a new study, novel dihydroxy functional 3-arm star polymers were synthesised using a combination of atom transfer radical polymerisation, ring opening polymerisation, and click chemistry.
