Smart coating to achieve autonomous corrosion control
4 Jun 12
Smart coating to achieve autonomous corrosion control

A multifunctional, smart coating for the autonomous control of corrosion has been developed in order to detect the chemical changes associated with the onset of corrosion and respond autonomously to indicate it and control it.

Self-healing coatings for corrosion protection

Multiple action self-healing properties of a polymer coating doped with a cerium based corrosion inhibitor are in the focus of a new study. Thibault Muselle, research group SURF (Surface and Electrochemical Engineering), Vrije Universiteit Brussel, reports that measurements showed a good closure of scratches after a heat treatment. It was proven that this closure was accompanied by a good recovery of the barrier properties.

Fast and simple production of transparent superhydrophobic surfaces

Fast and simple production of transparent superhydrophobic surfaces Alexander Irzh of the Bar-Ilan University in Israel reports on a very fast and simple production of transparent superhydrophobicsurfaces by using microwave (MW) plasma. It was found that by reacting various organic liquids in MW argon plasma, these materials are polymerised and the substrates including the plasma chamberwalls are coated by hydrophobic polymer.By Kirsten Wrede

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.

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.
