Summer, sun, boating!
However, the boat varnish should adhere perfectly and shine impressive.
Gas Catalytic infrared system from Heraeus Noblelight help to solve this. Generally, the marine industry relies upon wet finishing systems which give the desired hull color.
Further protection to the high gloss finish can be provided by an extra two part polyurethane clear coat.
Multipurpose boat sheds tend to be big, cold and dusty which makes high gloss finishing difficult to achieve.
The cold atmosphere can cause an “orange peel” effect on the finished paint, so the generally accepted method of heating the shed is to use a hot air circulation system, prior to wet spraying. Unfortunately the air movement causes dust to become airborne which can then land on the newly painted surface.
Jorge Borges, owner of International Marine approached Heraeus (formerly Vulcan Catalytic Systems) for help in speeding up the complete process, and improving the finish on completed boats.
Now Gas Catalytic IR Heat could be used to achieve a boat hull with a finish which meets proud owners expectations of a high gloss finish with no imperfections. The added advantage is that Jorge can complete a simple paint job in a day.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
