TERNAL® EV is a novel calcium aluminate binder that allows dry-mix producers to efficiently develop an entire range of self-levelling compounds with reliable and consistent performance. This addresses a common issue for dry-mix producers.
Each individual levelling compound in a range is formulated using multiple binder components, which makes it difficult to achieve a reliable outcome across a whole range of floor-levelling compounds. Each of these products is developed using a single core binder composed of a combination of TERNAL® EV and a suitable calcium sulfate (according to local availability).
The core binder allows for the creation of a wide range of levelling compounds as well as self-levelling compounds, which can be developed quickly through the adjustment of the quantity added to fillers that make up the bulk of typical formulations. (The usual range of additives must still be used in order to fine-tune the performance level.)
TERNAL® EV-based floor coatings and self-levelling floor compounds provide solutions in relation to key issues in the construction industry, such as environmental concerns and the durability of materials.
Calcium aluminates are typically used to produce dry-mix mortars with demanding time-defined performance, often relating to quite precise reactivity profiles, mechanical performance or dimensional stability. These performances can vary according to the time and date of the production of the dry-mix batch in relation to the installation date of the product. This process is widely referred to as ‘dry-mix ageing’. In an effort to dramatically reduce this, Kerneos has developed patented technology, which it has applied to its calcium-based products.Dry-mix compounds based on this new product have demonstrated improved performance stability over time. Mortars with extended lifespans are also valued by producers exporting mortars (or those with products where stock rotation is low) due to their specialist nature, and also in terms of the advantages they present during the launch of a new mortar on the market.
Kerneos has established itself as the partner of choice for innovations in dry-mix applications. The company is committed to supporting technological development and innovation in the building sector.About Kerneos

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
