7 Current news of BAMrss
A new analytical centrifuge is being used to test adhesive bonds, coatings and composites. BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing’s scientists had the idea that samples should no longer be clamped, but simply inserted. Simply inserting the specimen makes rapid loading ...
Volatile mercury from historic mirrors
Ancient mirrors still exist which were made by applying mercury to a thin tin foil. Although their production was banned in 1886, owning one has never been prohibited. Over the years, the compound of tin and mercury (the so-called tin amalgam) corrodes or detaches from the glass, the ...
Bayer MaterialScience and BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing develop shape memory polymer from thermoplastic polyurethane
A new thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) developed by Bayer MaterialScience together with the BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing in Berlin, Germany, shows that plastics can also have a memory. Parts made of such a plastic can be temporarily reshaped and fixed in this ...
The difficult search for dangerous mycotoxins
Do you know how many moulds are in a slice of bread? And has it occured to you whether these moulds pose a danger? BAM's experts are carrying out research into this topic and have developed an analytical method to detect the toxic metabolic compounds of moulds. Moulds, and more than 300 ...
BAM describes its tasks in general terms for the approval process. BAM started testing the design of the CASTOR Ia, the first CASTOR container, exactly 30 years ago in the spring of 1978. Since then the benchmarks for design tests of packages for the transport of spent fuel and highly ...
BAM makes it possible to search on-line for all dangerous goods packagings approved by BAM, including intermediate bulk containers (IBC) and large packagings manufactured in Germany or abroad. The search tool enables - national and international users of dangerous goods packagings to ...
Glasses doped with gold particles of controllable size and shape deliver new materials for optoelectronic applications
Even the ancient Romans were familiar with processes for coloring glass by adding gold. Initially colorless, the glass takes on a ruby-red color when heated in a controlled fashion. The source of this color is finely divided gold clusters. The light absorption depends on the concerted ...
