New direct sizing system for E-Glass yarns
New Composites    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Building on its experience with its S-2 Glass direct-sized products, AGY has developed a new direct sizing system, called 947, for E-Glass yarns used primarily in aerospace applications. Fibers with 947 sizing can be woven into fabric and used in composite applications without additional finishing. AGY say that yarns produced with the new 947 sizing have significantly higher tensile strengths than their counterparts coated with traditional oil and starch sizes. According to AGY, because fabrics made from 947-coated yarns need not undergo the damaging heat treatments or other cleaning processes that can erode fabric integrity, they can contribute considerably more strength to the composite materials into which they are incorporated.

Nanotechnology solutions for self-cleaning, dirt and water-repellent coatings
Nano Werk    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A surface is not simply the physical division between an object and its environment; it fulfills a range of functions of its own which often play a crucial part in product design. Surfaces are supposed to feel good to the touch and to look good for as long as possible, be easy to maintain and not be spoiled by dirt, water stains or fingermarks. Traditional coating materials often do not stand the test of the increased demands made on materials today. In recent years however, advances have been made using methods ascribed to nanotechnology. The following gives a short overview of the basis of these structures, the processes involved in their manufacture, the areas where they can be used, and the effect they have on the environment and human health.
