Gilding is the process of coating intricate artefacts with precious metals. Ancient Egyptians and Chinese coated their sculptures with thin metal films using gilding - and these golden sculptures have resisted corrosion, wear, and environmental degradation for thousands of years. The middle and outer coffins of Tutankhamun, for instance, are gold leaf gilded, as are many other ancient treasures.
Altus Group is supporting its long standing pre-eminent supplier, Rehm Thermal Systems, as the company collaborates with Electrolube to provide coating systems and lacquers to guarantee optimum results during jetting, dispensing, spraying or curtain coating.
Can a new type of transparent gel, made from readily-available beer waste, help engineers build greenhouses on Mars? CU Boulder physicists have developed an insulating gel that they say could coat the windows of habitats in space, allowing the settlers inside to trap and store energy from the sun—much like a greenhouse stays warm during the winter. And unlike similar products on the market, the material is mostly see-through.
A collaboration that benefits electronics manufacturers around the world: That is what the cooperation between Rehm Thermal Systems and Electrolube is all about. The perfect interaction between coating systems and lacquers ensures optimum results during jetting, dispensing, spraying or curtain coating.
High transfer efficiency, minimum powder output, uniform powder application; powder coating guns are at the core of powder coating. Electrostatic powder coating is a feasible alternative to wet coating for applications in various industries where large quantities are coated in the same colour.
Leader in dispensing, jetting, and coating equipment and technologies, Nordson ASYMTEK, has announced a collaboration with The Peters Group, Kempen, Germany, to conduct a series of seminars in China on conformal coating.
To meet the demands posed by special environmental conditions and high hygiene requirements, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS developed the nsd tupH (Sealed Surface Conversion System) anti-corrosion treatment: an innovative surface treatment making aluminium drives extremely robust and durable.
It has been announced by P2i that its high speed Splash-proof X nano coating solution is available. With improvements made in the process that chemically bonds its patented water resistant coating to electronic devices, OEMs can now process up to twice as many devices in the same amount of time.
Fabrics that resist water are essential for everything from rainwear to military tents, but conventional water-repellent coatings have been shown to persist in the environment and accumulate in our bodies, and so are likely to be phased out for safety reasons. That leaves a big gap to be filled if researchers can find safe substitutes. Now, a team at MIT has come up with a promising solution: a coating that not only adds water-repellency to natural fabrics such as cotton and silk, but is also more effective than the existing coatings.
Saint Donatus, symbol of the city of Zadar is classified among the most famous and most valuable monuments in Croatia. Moreover, due to its unusual cylindrical appearance and robust monumentality, it belongs to the most significant European pre-Romanesque churches. The church is a protected cultural heritage listed in the Register of the Republic of Croatia on UNESCO's list.
