Cicada wings could inspire next-gen surface technologies

Cicada wings could inspire next-gen surface technologies
Researchers are looking to insects - specifically cicadas - for insight into the design of artificial surfaces with de-icing, self-cleaning and anti-fogging abilities. Their wings allow cicadas to fly, of course, but they also are good at repelling water - a condition that humans can appreciate, too. "Our work with cicadas is letting us explore a field called bioinspiration," said Nenad Miljkovic, a University of Illinois mechanical science and engineering professor who co-led a new study of cicada wings.

Low viscosity conformal coating cures with light

Low viscosity conformal coating cures with light
Dymax 9452-FC from Intertronics is an electronics conformal coating formulated with a new technology as an alternative to thin, solvent-based conformal coatings. Whilst it has a very low viscosity – 20 cP – it still provides good electrical insulation and protection against humidity, plus what the company describes as very good thermal shock and corrosion resistance.

Gel coatings lead to better catheters and condoms

Gel coatings lead to better catheters and condoms
Catheters, intravenous lines, and other types of surgical tubing are a medical necessity for managing a wide range of diseases. But a patient’s experience with such devices is rarely a comfortable one. Now MIT engineers have designed a gel-like material that can be coated onto standard plastic or rubber devices, providing a softer, more slippery exterior that can significantly ease a patient’s discomfort. The coating can even be tailored to monitor and treat signs of infection.

Biobased anti-corrosion coatings research paper at EuroCorr 2017

Biobased anti-corrosion coatings research paper at EuroCorr 2017
It has been revealed that several raw materials employed in the production of conventional anticorrosion coatings pose severe threat to environment and human health. The hazards have led to surge in government regulations that have restrained anticorrosion coatings market growth. Global market trends are moving towards sustainable and renewable materials as public is becoming more aware of importance of utilising environmentally safe solutions.

Rapid curing epoxy offers high bond strength

Master Bond EP41S-F is a two part epoxy for bonding, sealing, coating and encapsulation applications. It combines fast ambient temperature cure speed with chemical resistance and superior electrical insulation properties. This versatile system is easy to handle and has a forgiving 100 to 25 mix ratio by weight. After mixing, EP41S-F polymerizes quickly and can usually be removed from a fixture within 20-30 minutes. Full cures are achieved in 24 hours at 75°F or in 45-60 minutes at 200°F.

Screen coating takes its inspiration from moth eyes

Screen coating takes its inspiration from moth eyes
Screens on even the newest phones and tablets can be hard to read outside in bright sunlight. Inspired by the nanostructures found on moth eyes, researchers have developed a new antireflection film that could keep people from having to run to the shade to look at their mobile devices. The antireflection film exhibits a surface reflection of just 23%, much lower than the iPhone's surface reflection of 4.4%, for example.
