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.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
