Biopolymers can be processed into films using conventional machinery – this will be demonstrated in a workshop given by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP in Schwarzheide on June 10, 2015. In addition, new developments that considerably expand the range of familiar applications in the field of biopolymer films will be presented. Special attention will be given to co-extruded systems of films. The workshop is directed towards film manufacturers and processors, representatives from plastics groups and associations, as well as research institutions.
Films represent an important area of the plastics industry. The range of applications is diverse, from flexible films for the packaging sector, to bags and...08.06.2015 | Read more

Geruchsprüfungen an Innenraummaterialien, wie Bauprodukten und Konsumgütern, sind ein nützliches Werkzeug um unangenehmen Gerüchen (»off-odor«) auf die Spur zu kommen. In Kombination mit Emissionskammermessungen können unter definierten klimatischen Bedingungen qualitative und quantitative Kriterien zur Beurteilung von Geruchsstoffemissionen herangezogen werden. Das kostenfreie Webinar des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Holzforschung WKI am 24.2.2015 beschäftigt sich ab 15 Uhr mit dem Thema »Sensorische Prüfungen«.
Eine quantitative Untersuchung von Gerüchen kann mit der Methode der empfunden Intensität (»perceived intensity«) gemäß ISO 16000 Teil 28 oder mit der...17.02.2015 | Read more
The Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will present how laser-based technologies can contribute to the laboratory of the future at the LABVOLUTION in Hannover in Hall 9, Stand E67/09, from October 6th to 8th, 2015. As a part of the model lab smartLAB, the LZH is showing how additive manufacturing, better known as 3-D printing, can make experimental setups more flexible.
Twelve partners from science and industry are presenting an intelligent and innovative model lab at the special display smartLAB. A part of this intelligent...
Before embarking on a transcontinental journey, jet airplanes fill up with tens of thousands of gallons of fuel. In the event of a crash, such large quantities of fuel increase the severity of an explosion upon impact.
Researchers at Caltech and JPL have discovered a polymeric fuel additive that can reduce the intensity of postimpact explosions that occur during accidents and...
When surgical residents need to practice a complicated procedure to fashion a new ear for children without one, they typically get a bar of soap, carrot or an apple.
To treat children with a missing or under-developed ear, experienced surgeons harvest pieces of rib cartilage from the child and carve them into the framework...
