Nanocoating prevents greasy smears

Anti-fingerprint surfaces

05-Jul-2019

Not only are greasy fingerprints on shiny stainless steel surfaces unattractive, they also attack the surface in question. A new nanocoating being developed by Fraunhofer researchers will in the future prevent the annoying smudges that result from fingers touching stainless steel surfaces. The ...

Environmentally-friendly coatings for aquaculture nets

New approach for prevention of biofouling

04-Apr-2019

Organisms like algae, mussels or barnacles rapidly colonise surfaces in maritime applications, such as ship hulls. The protective coatings primarily used to date contain substances like copper, which are harmful to the environment. The nets used in fish farming are also largely impregnated with ...

Materials could delay frost up to 300 times longer than existing anti-icing coatings

26-Mar-2019

Most techniques to prevent frost and ice formation on surfaces rely heavily on heating or liquid chemicals that need to be repeatedly reapplied because they easily wash away. Even advanced anti-icing materials have problems functioning under conditions of high humidity and subzero conditions, ...

Self-healing coating made of corn starch makes small scratches disappear through heat

25-Mar-2019

Due to the special arrangement of its molecules, a new coating made of corn starch is able to repair small scratches by itself through heat: The cross-linking via ring-shaped molecules makes the material mobile, so that it compensates for the scratches and these disappear again. Superficial ...
