  • A Superhydrophobic Aerogel That Does Not Require Per-Fluoro Compounds or Contain any Fluorine

    Type: 
    Product

    Summary: This invention is a method to produce a superhydrophobic/ultrahydrophobic material that does not contain per-fluoro compounds or fluorine. Like similar sol-gel based coatings that are water repellant this material is prepared in a way similar to film Aerogels; however the surface chemistry responsible for the inherent material roughness and super water repellency is comprised differently. This attribute makes the material less costly to produce and renders it safe for biological applications.

    Arches technology: technical brief

    Arches are a common feature in houses today. It is a technology which has been in use for hundreds of years and has withstood the test of time as evidenced by the numerous arches seen in ancient buildings and old houses in Sri Lanka. Masons have been trained by Practical Action on the technology and the practical use of several types of arches, some of which were constructed at Practical Action pilot project sites. This technical brief discusses about those arches technologies.
