Plasma technology for solvent-free utility wood

ttz Bremerhaven is evaluating the effectiveness of the process with a genetic detection method


In order to raise the competitiveness of wood compared to other materials, it is necessary to develop a cost-efficient method of wood protection which is free of toxic chemicals and nevertheless guarantees the wood's long durability. DURAWOOD, a research project funded by the European Union, has ...


New technique shows unprecedented precision in measuring liquid-solid interaction

New images improve resolution of measurements by a factor of 10,000 or more


Wettability — the degree to which a liquid either spreads out over a surface or forms into droplets — is crucial to a wide variety of processes. It influences, for example, how easily a car's windshield fogs up, and also affects the functioning of advanced batteries and fuel-cell systems. Until ...


A little less force: Making atomic force microscopy work for cells


Atomic force microscopy, a tactile-based probe technique, provides a three-dimensional nanoscale image of a material by gliding a needle-like arm across the material's surface. The core of AFM imaging workhorse is a cantilever with a sharp tip that deflects as it encounters undulations across a ...


Improved adhesive for products like transparent tape could benefit biofuels economy


An adhesive used in products like laminate countertops may also help cement a place for economically viable biofuels, according to a Kansas State University researcher. Susan Sun directs K-State's Bio Materials and Technology Laboratory, where she studies bio-based materials. Her research group ...


Ashland selects Quadra Chemicals for Canadian PVAc emulsions distribution


Ashland Performance Materials, a commercial unit of Ashland Inc., has selected Quadra Chemicals to be its sole distributor of polyvinyl acetate homopolymer and copolymer emulsions, acrylic and vinyl acrylic emulsions, wood glue emulsions and wet adhesion monomer technologies in Canada. The ...


The invasive green mussel may inspire new forms of wet adhesion


The green mussel is known for being a notoriously invasive fouling species, but scientists have just discovered that it also has a very powerful form of adhesion in its foot, according to a recent article in the Journal of Biological Chemistry. The stickiness of the mussel's foot could possibly ...


HIPS fireproof coatings can really take the heat


Tough new fire-resistant coating materials called HIPS ('hybrid inorganic polymer system') are being developed by CSIRO researchers in Melbourne. HIPS coatings can withstand temperatures of over 1000°C compared to current commercial coatings used on building materials and structures which break ...

Measuring the immeasurable: New study links heat transfer, bond strength of materials


The speed at which heat moves between two materials touching each other is a potent indicator of how strongly they are bonded to each other, according to a new study by researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Additionally, the study shows that this flow of heat from one material to ...


Scientists patent corrosion-resistant nano-coating for metals

Thinner, less toxic than existing coatings; efficient and economical to produce


Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have developed a method for coating metal surfaces with an ultrathin film containing nanoparticles which renders the metal resistant to corrosion and eliminates the use of toxic chromium for this purpose. The scientists ...


LLNL teams with Quantum Fuel Systems to accelerate development of hydrogen storage technologies


Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is working with Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies on a next-generation manufacturing technique for hydrogen storage vessels. As part of a $5.6 million three-year contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, Livermore researchers will demonstrate a unique ...
