This article investigates the impacts of variable factors, such as practical experience and factors related to study style, on employment outcomes and patterns of built environment graduates in Australia. This article also compares the employment prospects of different built environment sub-disciplines, including Architecture, Construction, Real Estate and Urban Planning and Regional Studies. Practical experience and the possibility of work with final year employers after graduation were found to have a statistically significant impact on the employment outcomes for graduates of built environment and all of its sub-disciplines. However, degree level and type of university attended were not found to have a statistically significant impact. Attendance type and employment mode in the final year of study had a statistically significant impact on the employment patterns for graduates of built environment and all of its sub-disciplines. The graduates who studied part-time and worked full-time in their final year of study were more likely to secure full-time jobs after graduation. The findings presented in this article can be used by built environment graduates to identify the variable factors that they can change in order to enhance their employment prospects. © 2016 Crown copyright Source

The POLITEC E rage of highly reactive binders has been introduced with fast initial strength development and with very low amine consumption compared to conventional binders. POLITEC E is a range of polyurethane cold box binders free from aromatic solvents developed to meet stringent environmental and technical requirements. The POLITEC requires significantly less time to achieve a fully cured core. It is therefore now possible to reduce gassing time by 40% when these new binders are used. The POLITEC range consists of three packages, a standard system suitable for general applications in ferrous and nonferrous, a high-reactivity system for improved productivity and an improved humidity resistance system. The E6010/E9030 system has significantly lower odor than conventional PUCB and lower emissions. E6010/E 9040 offers even higher reactivity with lower amine consumption. E6010/E9050 is a high reactivity system with enhanced humidity resistance. Source

With quality standards for ductile and grey iron castings continuing to rise, today's modern iron foundry has even greater challenges to meet say Fiorenzo Santorini, Foseco Italy and Colin Powell, Foseco Japan. It is no longer possible to just rely on chemical analysis to give the required quality because even melts with similar analysis and similar pouring temperatures can give variable casting performance. To overcome these problems, Foseco in conjunction with ProService of Italy, has developed an advanced form of thermal analysis that allows the foundry to continually track any detrimental changes in the solidification process and with the help of remote monitoring seek advice from an independent source.
