Anti-adhesive handles

21.06.2004


CIDETEC have been working with EGOKI HANDLES on developing new anti-adhesive finishes for metal parts for a number of different applications.



The aim of the project has been to achieve product enhancement, specifically to add a transparent and anti-adhesive protective coating to the TIRADORES EGOKI (EGOKI HANDLES) company range of decorative finishes for their metal.
From a technical perspective, two alternatives were initially put forward for obtaining organic protective coatings for zamac (Zn+Al+Mg+Cu alloy) handles: firstly, organic coatings by means of electropolymerisation and secondly, the application of a protective varnish with anti-adhesive characteristics, the latter being precisely the one which gave the desired results.

The key aspects worked on were the optimum adhesion of the varnish to the handle, getting good end properties for the coating and devising a method for the application which was useable on an industrial scale. To this end, new families of products were studied and which were based on special organic-inorganic hybrid varnishes with anti-adhesive properties, and which have recently appeared on the German market.



Apart from this joint work, CIDETEC is researching this line of work using self-assembly methods for coating with nanolayers and its application in surface modification of metals, providing them with both anti-adhesive properties as well as other surface properties of interest: coatings that promote adhesion or protection against corrosion, with antibacterian or bioactive properties.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

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...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

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...
