Real-Time Polymer Monitoring System

The real-time insight generated by ACOMP enables polymer manufacturers to immediately respond to process anomalies, adhere to tighter polymer quality control specifications, and optimize polymer production for continuous, batch and semibatch r…

Calculation of Crosslink Density of Thermoset Polymers

This article demonstrates the equivalence of a simple calculation for crosslink density to more sophisticated methods developed by others. By virtue of the method’s simplicity it has been easily extended to more complicated UV-curing systems a…

Science and Tech Solutions Meet the Flooring Crisis

Environmental issues and shortages in supply chain raw materials are stretching the flooring industry worldwide. Here, Vik Vithlani, of Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings EMEAI, examines how science and technology are finding th…

Metal Adhesion and Corrosion Resistance of Coatings

The improved adhesion, good corrosion resistance and good QUV gloss retention show that the hydrophobic resin in the hybrid polymer can be used to reduce the effects of high acid on corrosion and of styrene on QUV gloss retention.
