Improved corrosion protection with flake-type zinc-phosphate particles

18-Apr-2017

Large quantities of steel are used in architecture, bridge construction and ship-building. Structures of this type are intended to be long-lasting. Furthermore, even in the course of many years, they should not lose any of their qualities regarding strength and safety. For this reason, the steel ...

How good is the measurement method?

Three more interlaboratory tests on safety of chemicals

29-Nov-2016

The causes of accidents can be diverse, whether it is an explosion in a chemical plant or a fire on a dangerous goods freighter. Prevention starts in the laboratory where chemicals are tested for their hazardous properties. Safety experts, haulage contractors or traders must be able to rely on ...

Making some of the world's most durable materials corrosion-resistant

27-May-2016

Borides are among the hardest and most heat-resistant substances on the planet, but their Achilles' Heel, like so many materials', is that they oxidize at high temperatures. Oxidation is the chemical reaction commonly known as corrosion or rusting -- it can signal the end for a material's ...

Carbon nanotubes improve metal's longevity under radiation

04-Mar-2016

One of the main reasons for limiting the operating lifetimes of nuclear reactors is that metals exposed to the strong radiation environment near the reactor core become porous and brittle, which can lead to cracking and failure. Now, a team of researchers at MIT and elsewhere has found that, at ...
