Aerogels with Improved Properties for Aeronautic and Space Applications

Current aerogel products on the market today are silica–based and break down on handling, shedding small dust particles. Hence, they require encapsulation for most applications and insulation properties degrade over time as particles settle. In contrast, polyimide aerogels are flexible, mechanically robust and do not shed dust. Other properties (thermal conductivity, dielectric, etc.) are similar to silica aerogels.

Achieving Total Data Awareness: How Traceability Improves Manufacturing

Traceability has variable and narrow definitions depending on the industry, product, and application. As a result, narrow solutions are often adopted yet only deliver the required data scope for a subset of a specific product. The issue with this approach is twofold: First, it only delivers a short-term solution, as traceability requirements expand continuously. Second, it neglects a significant opportunity to achieve real process intelligence and control.

Innovative Antimicrobial Resistant Polymers for Medical Devices

Secondary infections found in hospital environments are becoming an increasingly significant concern for patients, hospital administrators, and staff. Patient care can be negatively affected when a secondary infection caused by a variety of microorganisms commonly found in healthcare environments leads to health issues for a patient. With insurance companies no longer covering the expense for secondary infections, the cost to hospitals for the infections can lead to a negative return on their bottom line.
