Coatings

An appealing and promising exterior: coatings provide just that – and more, if they are more than mere disguise. They can improve the physical, electrical or chemical properties of surfaces. Formulators are constantly on the lookout for ways to optimise them, often using innovative analysis techniques, knowing that the outer values can matter as much as the inner values.

  • Paper or plastic?

    For our sake and the environment, there is a considerable amount of research into the reduction of plastic for many and various applications. For the first time, researchers have found a way to imbue relatively sustainable paper materials with some of the useful properties of plastic. This can be do more

  • Copper is effective against Sars-Cov-2 on surfaces – silver is not

    Copper and silver are known for their antibacterial properties. Researchers from Bochum have explored their effectiveness against viruses. Silver and copper ions wipe out many pathogens. That’s why implants and medical instruments, for example, are coated with these metals. Researchers from Molecula more

  • Environmentally-friendly coatings

    Chemists from Konstanz develop a new class of catalysts that enable manufacturing of polyethylene dispersions directly in water. This opens up perspectives for the environmentally-friendly, solvent-free production of plastic coatings. Polyethylene (PE) is one of today's most important types of plast more

Product Development and Contract Manufacturing of Granules and Pellets

Specific changes in their morphology or coating with functional polymers can improve the performance of additives. However, the necessary techniques are not always available in-house. Outsourcing to a contract manufacturer makes product development much easier and shortens the time-to-market, thanks more

Icephobic Coating

University of Michigan researchers demonstrate a durable ice-repellent coating that could help keep everything from airplanes to ships, power lines and windshields ice-free. more

The Chemistry of an Electric Guitar

Electric guitars, on the face of it, might not seem to have much to do with chemistry. However, the materials that make them up are carefully chosen for their chemical properties, without which they simply wouldn’t function. In this graphic, we take a look at some of these materials, and their typic more
