More Efficient Zinc-Nickel Plating

Zinc-nickel coatings are well-known for their corrosion-protection properties, but the electroplating process typically used to apply them is fairly inefficient, thanks in great part to the breakdown products it produces. Coventya has come up with a more efficient and “cleaner” zinc-nickel process that minimizes the amount of breakdown. The company’s patented Selective Separative System (3S) …

Composite materials – is the use of proper definitions important?

Due to the unprecedented progress of science and technology during the last 50 years we observe nowadays a huge variety of materials with new properties. Nano-materials alone, with their unique properties, provide a good example. At the same time, the importance of the formulation of the respective proper terms, definitions and nomenclatures seems to be …

Embracing challenge

Regular readers of these Editorials, as well as the news on MaterialsToday.com, will be familiar with the Elsevier Materials Science Council, and the launch of the Materials in Society lecture series (the first of which can now be viewed online at www.materialstoday.com/materials-in-society); and so I won’t retread old ground by introducing the Council once again. But I would like …
