Protecting precious artefacts by graphene gilding

Protecting precious artefacts by graphene gilding
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.

From buildings to Mars habitat: super-insulating gel

From buildings to Mars habitat: super-insulating gel
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.

An economic, ecological solution for electrostatic powder coating

An economic, ecological solution for electrostatic powder 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.

Sustainable coatings make natural fabrics waterproof

Sustainable coatings make natural fabrics waterproof
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.

MCI technology used to restore European historical buildings

MCI technology used to restore European historical buildings
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.
