Database simulates the properties of cement in all varieties

Database simulates the properties of cement in all varieties
An international team of scientists has created a new database of molecular dynamics models that simulate the properties of cement in all its varieties. It’s intended to help fine-tune this component of concrete and curtail emissions in its manufacturing process. The new database, called cemff, for cement force fields. In this case, the force field isn't an invisible barrier from a science-fiction story. It's the collection of parameters scientists use to build computer models of atomic interactions.

Nanomaterial can extract hydrogen fuel from seawater

Nanomaterial can extract hydrogen fuel from seawater
It's possible to produce hydrogen to power fuel cells by extracting the gas from seawater, but the electricity required to do it makes the process costly. UCF researcher Yang Yang has come up with a new hybrid nanomaterial that harnesses solar energy and uses it to generate hydrogen from seawater more cheaply and efficiently than current materials.

The nano world: A new frontier

The nano world: A new frontier
Nanotechnology might seem cutting edge, but humans have actually been experimenting with nanomaterials for hundreds of years – albeit accidentally. In fact, stained glass windows came about as the result of a heating and cooling process that adjusted the size of nanocrystals in the glass. Medieval nanotechnologists may not have been aware of the scale they were working at, but this art form is widely considered as one of the first examples of manipulating nanomaterials.

Film protects products against corrosion

Film protects products against corrosion
Cortec’s EcoWeave is a durable tarp-like film that protects heavy raw metal materials and finished products against corrosion. EcoWeave is made at Cortec Coated Products (CCP) in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. High tech Nordson melters and slot die eliminate the need for dryers, resulting in big energy savings. A 100 percent solids coating process eliminates solvent emissions. The new process also lets Cortec provide more options to customers.

UV-curing epoxy resin adhesive for dome coatings

Techsil just introduced Vitralit UC 6686, a light curable epoxy adhesive from Panacol. Upon exposure to ultraviolet light, it cures in seconds to form a crystal clear, extremely hard, scratch resistant surface perfect for dome coatings and for decorating glass and plastics.

One component, high temperature resistant epoxy

One component, high temperature resistant epoxy
With a low coefficient of thermal expansion of 15-20 x 10-6 in/in/°C, Master Bond EP13LTE is a one part epoxy for structural bonding applications. According to Master Bond, EP13LTE cures readily in 1-2 hours at 300-350°F and has limited flow while curing. It is said to bond well to many substrates such as metals, glass, composites, ceramics and plastics.
