More range for electric vehicles: functionalized thermoplastic sandwich components within minutes

In times of impending bans for diesel and generally internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, battery electric vehicles (BEVs) are becoming increasingly interesting for buyers, especially in urban environments. Boosting battery capacities enable longer travels, however driving range of EVs varies especially at low ambient temperatures. Within the EU project “OPTEMUS” (Optimized Energy Management and Use), Read more about More range for electric vehicles: functionalized thermoplastic sandwich components within minutes[…]

Same warmth with half the bulk, HeiQ launches its first visible textile technology HeiQ XReflex

Humans lose about 60% of body heat through thermal radiation. In order to stay warm, insulations made out of down, synthetic or fleece are typically used in outerwear. The thicker the insulation, the less heat loss and the warmer the person. For the active person or traveler, the goal is to find the same warmth Read more about Same warmth with half the bulk, HeiQ launches its first visible textile technology HeiQ XReflex[…]

Fire protection for buildings

Depending on the size, condition and intended use of a building, the authorities and insurance companies have different requirements. Large-scale and fatal fires in recent years show that the measures taken so far are not sufficient. There are numerous possi-bilities to increase safety through fire protection, both in the construction of new buil-dings and the Read more about Fire protection for buildings[…]

Insulating material based on foamed polymers

Building insulation currently plays a decisive role in reducing energy consumption and consequently energy costs, and in reducing CO2 emissions from buildings, also in the context of efforts to improve the climate. At the same time, new regulations and requi-rements in the field of fire protection of buildings pose new challenges with regard to environmentally Read more about Insulating material based on foamed polymers[…]
