XeroCoat, Inc., a pioneering Silicon Valley startup, has entered the solar energy market with a high-performing antireflective coating for solar energy systems. Applicable across all solar energy technologies, the antireflective
NexTech Solutions, Inc. and FAS Holdings Group, LLC, jointly doing business as "NexTechFAS," have developed two new products for use in the manufacture of solar panels. The PVScan, an automated optical inspection (AOI) tool, and the PVAdvantage, an extrusion deposition (ED) tool, are designed to decrease the costs and improve production yields in the manufacture of photovoltaic (solar) products.
Xiom Corp., developer and manufacturer of a portable polymer powder coating spray system, has introduced four new coatings for use with its system. The coatings are all environmentally friendly and designed to protect structures against the elements.
Hardide Coatings Ltd., which has developed a tungsten carbide-based coating for chrome replacement programs, has embarked on a three-year coatings approval test program with Airbus. The technology is also being
How can you accurately a mix and meter a three-component (3K) water-based CARC primer and Type I topcoat? An electronic meter-mix system designed specifically for 3K waterborne CARCs is helping one military vehicle manufacturer meet quality and environmental requirements.
An estimated 95 to 99% of all military ground vehicles are spray painted manually. Painting military vehicles using automated robotic systems can save millions of dollars, improve quality, protect workers and open up the most problematic bottleneck defense contractors face, thereby allowing them to get vehicles to the soldiers as quickly as possible.
More than 2,200 attendees gathered in Chicago’s McCormick Place to learn about advances in UV and EB raw materials, formulations, equipment and processing, both from the RadTech 2008 technical program and from the 116 suppliers on the exhibit floor. This article presents some of the highlights of the event.
Our February issue features a simplified method for producing high-performance solvent-free waterborne acrylic polyols with glycidyl neodecanoate technology, the effects of different curing methods on tack-free curing, the science of smart hydrophobic coatings, and more.
