Effect of peel ply surface treatment on adhesive bonding of polyester and vinyl ester composites used in the maritime industry
Dry peel plies are generally used in composite manufacturing by liquid moulding techniques in the maritime sector. They allow excess resin to bleed through its weaved structure, keeping the surfaces clean, and in certain cases with the required roughness until ready for bonding. However, these plies...

Studying microfibre release towards improved clothing design
Clothing manufactured from synthetic fabrics such as polyester and nylon can release hundreds of thousands of microfibres to waste water systems when washed in domestic washing machines. Fleece fabrics have been of particular focus, however, fleece clothing can be made from a wide variety of differe...

Biodegradability of Plastics: Challenges and Misconceptions
Plastics are one of the most widely used materials and, in most cases, they are designed to have long life times. Thus, plastics contain a complex blend of stabilizers that prevent them from degrading too quickly. Unfortunately, many of the most advantageous properties of plastics such as their chem...
