Hydrogel Adhesive: Healing Wounds

2020-04-01T11:01:38-07:00

Cuts, scrapes, blisters, burns, splinters, and punctures there are a number of ways broken skin happens, Hydrogel Adhesive helps. Most treatments for skin wounds involve simply placing a barrier over them (usually an adhesive gauze bandage). This keeps it moist, limit pain, and reduces exposure to infectious microbes. A new, scalable approach to speeding up wound healing, developed based on heat-responsive hydrogels. Mechanically active, stretchy, tough, highly adhesive, and antimicrobial, active adhesive dressings (AADs). To close wounds significantly faster than other methods and prevent bacterial growth without additional apparatus or stimuli. https://glewengineering.com/engineers-add-new-updates-to-medical-advances-2019/ This technology has the potential use not only [...]

Window Energy Efficiency: Solar Heat Gain and Visible Transmittance

2018-08-22T11:55:28-07:00

Conduction and Radiation of Thermal Energy In my last blog post, I wrote about the conduction and radiation of thermal energy through windows and the thermal transmittance value, called the U-Factor, that characterizes that heat transfer.  The U-factor is useful in evaluating window performance and making wise decisions when specifying components for a building, but it is only one piece of the puzzle.  The National Fenestration Research Council (NFRC) mandates a second value alongside U-factor in its certification process, called the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).  SHGC represents the ability of a window to resist [...]
