In this work, the brown rot resistance of black pine (Pinus nigra L.) wood, pressure-treated in an autoclave with nano-sized zinc borate and zinc oxide dispersions, was investigated. The two formulations based on zinc borate have given encouraging results, indicating fungicide effects of the metal nanoparticles on Coniophora puteana. In specific, mean weight losses for P. nigra sapwood exposed to this fungus (one without and one with the addition of a binder) were negligible, that is 0.54% and 0.34%, respectively. On the contrary, the impregnation of pine wood with nano-sized zinc oxide resulted in minimal protection, i.e. 35.9% weight loss. Therefore, nano-sized zinc borate can be utilised in new formulations to impart resistance to wood against the brown rot C. puteana. © 2013 © 2013 Taylor & Francis.

The paper describes the methodology followed for the development of new cool products in order to widen the range of existing solutions both including coloured (even dark) materials and extending the application also to building vertical components. Cool coloured ceramic tiles and acrylic paints for façades and roof membranes have been developed and tested at lab scale. Spectral reflectance measurements have been performed demonstrating a significant improvement of reflectance in the Near InfraRed (NIR) range (up to. +0.40) while keeping dark colour and high absorbance in the visible. The development of new products has been also oriented to the improvement of durability properties, being this aspect of relevance for high reflecting materials that have to keep their cooling properties over the time. While ceramic tiles naturally offer superior resistance to outdoor ageing, a significant increase of biological growth resistance has been achieved also for roof membranes by including ZnO nanoparticles. The approach followed by the authors aimed at delivering products, that besides having higher NIR reflectance, were capable of satisfying industrial and market requirements being compatible with standard manufacturing processes and offering additional functionalities. A complementary paper will be dedicated to the extensive experimental and numerical evaluation of new materials' thermal performances. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

Applied Catalysis A: General | Year: 2012
The use of titania photocatalytic materials in industrial applications is strongly dependent on the stability, nanoparticle size distribution, ease of deposition and cost of the relevant titania precursor solutions or suspensions. The present contribution presents the preparation of inkjet-printed titania films, derived from stable water-based suspensions. The suspensions were synthesized by applying a "top-down" synthetic strategy, namely the ultrasonication of commercially available titania powder (Evonik Aeroxide P25). Crucial parameters, such as suspension stability, energy input requirements, particle size distribution, surface characteristics, compatibility with industrially proven inkjet systems and photocatalytic performance were investigated. The developed synthetic procedure proves environmentally friendly, low cost and most suitable for large scale production of titania thin films, by inkjet printing commercially available ceramic tiles. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

In this work, aqueous chemical solution deposition route suited for inkjet printing is used for the synthesis of photocatalytically active TiO 2 coatings. Environmentally friendly precursor solutions with electromagnetic ink-jet printing, allows cheap and simple processing of TiO 2 films on glass. The hydrolysis reaction of water sensitive titanium alkoxide (Ti-alkoxide) precursor is controlled by adding complexing agents as citric acid and triethanolamine prior to water addition, and aqueous stable solutions are achieved. The pH of the solutions is brought to neutral to guarantee flexible processing, avoid damage to substrates and equipment. Solution parameters are adapted to obtain optimal gelation conditions and good jettability. The influence of processing parameters on the phase formation and surface morphology is studied by thermogravimetric analysis and differential thermal analysis (TGA/DTA), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The photocatalytic activity of the films is evaluated by the degradation of methyl orange. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

The objective of this study is to develop a cost-effective and environmentally friendly synthesis using soft chemistry based on Chemical Solution Deposition (CSD) using ink-jet printing for the deposition of ceramic thin films. The main advantages are the lower investment, the faster deposition with higher yield and the processing under ambient pressure enabling a complete continuous processing. The materials chosen for this study are TiO2 for development of photocatalytic layers; Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) is chosen as electrolyte material for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC's) and for production of Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBC's); Lanthanum-Strontium-Manganese- Oxides (LSMO) magneto-resistive systems have been developed for obtaining functional magneto-resistive patterns.

Responding to the market trends, CHIMAR HELLAS S.A., a Greek SME company serving the wood-based panels' industry, has developed resins and impregnation syrups that offer improved water and oil repellency properties to wood-based panels. For this achievement, CHIMAR HELLAS S.A., has been cooperated with the pioneering nanotechnology company NanoPhos S.A., located in Lavrio, Greece. NanoPhos developed nanomaterials tailor made for CHIMAR products, while CHIMAR modified the synthesis process of its resins and syrups in order to fit with the special properties of the NanoPhos products. CHIMAR has used the nanomaterials as additives in the glue mixture of Urea-Formaldehyde (UF) resin suitable for the manufacturing of particleboards, as covering materials of particleboards and as additives in Melamine - Formaldehyde (MF) impregnation syrups for lamination papers. Tests have been carried out both at lab and industrial scale and the results show that the nanoadditive enhanced CHIMAR products can offer wood-based panels with improved oil and water repellency surfaces. Such products, with new attractive and easy care properties, are expected to find high appreciation in the market. © Forest Products Society 2015.
