Sealants are supposed to “seal”, but that core quality can be compromised if air bubbles form during the curing process. LINX investigates the impact of preparation on bubble sizes and their distribution.
Biomodics and the University of Copenhagen have used a new variant of neutron scattering to determine the structure of hydrogel polymer networks at a much longer length scale.
Thermoplast spacers are crucial for the long term sealing of the gas-filled double-layer glass in VELUX A/S thermo-windows. The LINX team at Aarhus University studied the effect of sulphur compounds on thermoplast spacers used in thermo-windows.
Danish company Biomodics is working with the University of Copenhagen to understand how their novel interpenetrating polymer networks (IPN) are structured in silicone medical devices.
