CAFAC-BAJOLET now offers a new service to help companies develop the use of rubber products across the whole of the railway industry, with the focus on fire-resistant product lines. The French company has been a specialist in the transformation of elastomers for transport industry manufacturers for 50 years. CAFAC showcased its know-how at the Innotrans trade fair in Berlin in September.
A high capacity for innovation makes CAFAC one of the leading fire-resistant rubber manufacturers in the market, particularly for rail applications. The rubber products serve as fireguards on train, by keeping flames from spreading from one compartment to the next. CAFAC represents an important link in the safety chain with obstacle detection or the use of sensors that make joints intelligent. The French specialist company is committed to providing the highest-value joint solutions in terms of investment and results.
CAFAC has all the traditional means of transforming rubber at its disposal. The company also has a sound engineering department with a proven track-record, which is the only way to effectively manage the diversity and complexity of the products manufactured. In addition to water-tightness and fire-proofing applications, CAFACs products can be used for bracing materials, motor connections, vibration filters, shock absorbers, braking applications, protection against harmful substances in the environment, deflection of electrical charges, and as pipelines to transport liquids.

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.
According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

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...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
