Superhydrophobic coating protects without the price

A new class of superhydrophobic nanomaterials might simplify the process of protecting surfaces from water

11-Dec-2015

A material made by scientists at Rice University, the University of Swansea, the University of Bristol and the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis is inexpensive, nontoxic and can be applied to a variety of surfaces via spray- or spin-coating. The hydrocarbon-based material may be a "green" ...

Glass paint could keep metal roofs and other structures cool even on sunny days

18-Aug-2015

Sunlight can be brutal. It wears down even the strongest structures, including rooftops and naval ships, and it heats up metal slides and bleachers until they're too hot to use. To fend off damage and heat from the sun's harsh rays, scientists have developed a new, environmentally friendly paint ...
