• Advances in Applied Ceramics publishes special issue on applications of polymer derived ceramics

    Maney Publishing
    Published in November 2009, this themed issue of Advances in Applied Ceramics is dedicated to the active interdisciplinary research topic of applications of polymer derived ceramics (PDC). Guest editors, Professor Paolo Colombo (University of Padova, Italy and the Pennsylvania State University, USA) and Dr. Gunter Motz (University of Bayreuth, Germany), commissioned a series of papers with the aim of stimulating use of these novel materials in key engineering fields.
  • Concrete fills up on fibre

    Materials World magazine
    A novel bi-component fibre using two different polymers may pave the way for a concrete that has the required impact resistance and flexural strength but without the need for steel fibre reinforcement. The technology is said to overcome the previous challenges of producing high performance concrete using polymeric fibres.
  • Refining refractory materials

    Materials World magazine
    Improving the oxidation resistance of carbon-containing refractory bricks and the wettability of castables is the focus of research at the University of Sheffield, UK. This could enhance furnace lining life and performance to benefit the metallurgical processing industries.
