Wacker's ACEO technology utilizes Drop-On-Demand approach which delivers precise drops of silicone material which flow into each other, building a continuous layer, layer is then cured with a UV light.
Trinseo SA is acquiring API Applicazioni Plastiche Industriali SpA to augment their experience in rigid plastics. Acquisition is being termed "first step" towards building performance materials capacity globally.
"Harsh" is the way James Walker describes the environments in the Oil & Gas industry they serve. Such applications require materials with exceptional performance characteristics to avoid a wide variety of catastrophic failures including Rapid Gas Decompression (RGD). James Walker has recently reported that their Vermilion® Three has become the first and only elastomer to receive Shell TAT approval to Shell MESC SPE 85/301.
Laser cleaning operates by ablating a specific layer of material or substrate is uncovered through the removal of undesired layers or incoherent particle distributions. Laser cleaning process now has found a wide variety of uses ranging from Aerospace, Automotive, composite manufacturing, Medical and Pharmaceutical, etc. industries
