With millions of square meters of available flat roof surfaces with PV conversion potential, PV roofing membranes have a huge potential for mass deployment. However, currently, major issues still hinder this deployment: adhesives or barrier encapsulants of the existing flexible PV roofs dont meet yet the same reliability as standard construction materials and BIPV is still expensive. The PV-GUM project aims at developing new manufacturing technologies and equipments which will produce a low cost highly efficient flexibly BIPV solar cell on a bituminous roofing membrane (thanks to their proven sustainability, bituminous membranes remain predominantly used for waterproofing flat roofs). The PV-GUM membrane should be very close to the usual bituminous roofing membrane in terms of size, installation process and quality to highly increase the penetration power of PV-GUM in the building market. The PV-GUM membrane will be based on the Derbibrite white-coated bituminous membrane technology of Imperbel, PV-GUM coordinator, and the Flexcell flexible PV modules technology. The full integration of the flexible PV modules in the membrane will be performed at the manufacturing stage by a new standardized roll-to-roll encapsulation process to produce PV-laminates followed by a roll-to-roll bitumen impregnation of the PV-laminates. In parallel, a new standardized PECVD reactor and process will be implemented to increase the Flexcell PV cells efficiency to 8% at least and achieve technology superiority over Unisolar remaining the main supplier for this market. The PV-GUM project targets a PV-laminates production capacity of 20 MW. The high degree of integration of the PV modules and the roll-to-roll lamination allowing process automation will highly decrease the costs /Wp. Furthermore, sustainability, quality procedures and monitoring in line, compliance to BIPV standards, as well as fully recyclability of the whole product are associated priorities of PV-GUM.

An airbag is made by producing a laminated material including a backing layer, a first polymer layer facing the backing layer, and a second polymer layer facing away from the backing layer. The first polymer layer has a glass transition temperature of 10 C. or less. The second polymer layer has a storage modulus at least 1 MPa at 90 C.


A method for producing a two-component polyurethane composition comprising at least one additive soluble in polar solvents, in particular a biocide, comprising the following steps: a) providing at least one polyol; b) adding at least one solution of the polar solvent comprising at least one additive soluble in polar solvents, in particular a biocide, and at least one carrier material for the additive to the polyol from step a); and c) providing, in accordance with the requirements, at least one isocyanate for adding to the mixture from step b). The method has the advantage that additives can be incorporated into a two-component polyurethane composition without agglomerating or precipitating, without side reactions, and without an additional drying step.


The invention relates to a method for the in situ production of fixing elements (5) on one or more substrates (4) using an adhesive to be applied in liquid form, said method having the steps of providing the substrate(s) (4), arranging a single-part or multi-part casting mold (1), filling the casting mold (1) with liquid adhesive, and curing the adhesive on the substrate(s) (4). Said method is also used with non-porous and non-transparent substrates (4) in a work step and is suitable for attaching load-bearing fixing elements (15).

The invention relates to a wound closure material with a core of biodegradable material, wherein at least one side, preferably two sides of the core of biodegradable material are provided with at least one, preferably a multitude of discrete spots of an adhesive. As with more common wound closure techniques like sutures, clips and tapes applied over the wound, new tissue has to close a gap between the wound edges. Use of a wound closing material of the present invention does not only have the advantage of a secure physical connection between the edges, but the material serves as scaffolding for the new tissue. It may also serve the cells as artificial extracellular matrix they can adhere to.
