Increase in ozone destroying substances - but Montreal Protocol on track
New Materials Thumb
University of Leeds : 08 November, 2014  (Technical Article)
Research from an international team of scientists has shown a recent increase in atmospheric hydrogen chloride (HCI), a substance linked to destruction of the ozone layer. It was anticipated that there would be a decline in HCI under the Montreal Protocol, the international treaty designed to protect the ozone layer by phasing out the production of ozone-depleting substances. The research was led by the University of Liège, Belgium, and involved scientists from Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, the UK, and the USA.

Advanced part testing helps innovative oil filter development
New Materials Thumb
Solvay Specialty Polymers : 08 November, 2014  (Application Story)
Solvay Engineering Plastics has been collaborating with Mahle in the development of oil filter modules using Technyl polyamide resins. The current glycol flow test benches at the company’s Technyl Innovation Centre in Lyon, France, are capable of testing as many as six parts at a time in temperatures of up to 135C and with oil under static pressure. Now, a new glycol bench will offer the possibility to perform, in parallel, high flow glycol and oil circulation tests at even higher pressures and temperatures.
