Equipment protection simplified with water-based removable coating

Equipment protection simplified with water-based removable coating
The VpCI-391 water-based coating from Cortec is best suited for transit and storage protection options for equipment manufacturers, suppliers, and owners. This removable coating delivers exceptional corrosion protection for indoor and outdoor applications and dries to a thin, clear film which is virtually unnoticeable. VpCI-391 can be used to protect both unpainted and painted surfaces, as well as to prevent dissimilar metal corrosion.

Sustainable coatings for landmark tanker aircraft supplied

Sustainable coatings for landmark tanker aircraft supplied
A double first has been landed by AkzoNobel's Aerospace Coatings business after it supplied products for a new long distance tanker aircraft commissioned by the French Air Force. Featuring the company's Aerowave 5001 water-based coating, not only is it the French Air Force's first new generation A330 MRTT (Multi Role Tanker Transport) aircraft, it's also the first aircraft of its size to be finished with an external water-based topcoat.

Coating and curing like nothing before

Coating and curing like nothing before
People often don’t realise how important coatings are to a lot of products and industries. Electrolube recently attended electronica 2018, to show live demonstrations of what it describes to be revolutionary, and one of a kind, new 2K850 conformal coating material using a line-up of three machines covering: dispensing and cure, followed by an end-of-line test of the coating using new technology.

Live coat, cure and test demos of 2K850 coating at electronica

Live coat, cure and test demos of 2K850 coating at electronica
Electrolube will be conducting live, stand-based demonstrations of its revolutionary new 2K850 conformal coating material using a line-up of three machines covering: dispensing and cure, followed by an end-of-line test of the coating using groundbreaking new technology developed in partnership with Electrolube. Electrolube will be in Hall B4 Stand 315 at Electronica this year with live demonstrations of what it claims to be one of the most important new conformal coatings to come to market in recent years.

UL 1203 Certified Epoxy

Master Bond EP41S-6 is a new two component epoxy system that meets UL 1203, which is defined by Underwriters Laboratories as the “Standard for Explosion-Proof and Dust-Ignition-Proof Electrical Equipment for Use in Hazardous (Classified) Locations”. To meet the UL 1203 requirements, samples of EP41S-6 were exposed to saturated vapors in air for the following chemicals: acetic acid (glacial), acetone, ammonium hydroxide (20% by weight), ASTM reference fuel C, diethyl ether, ethyl acetate, ethylene dichloride, furfural, n-hexane, methyl ethyl ketone, methanol, 2-nitropropane, and toluene. After 168 hours of exposure to these vapors, sample castings in groups of 6 were observed for discoloration, swelling, shrinking, crazing, cracking, leaching, and dissolving. The samples were also subjected to a crush test before and after exposure to these chemicals. The crushing force for EP41S-6 was not less than 85% of the original value. EP41S-6 has successfully met or exceeded the requirements of these tests.

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.
