Published April 2021, 23 pages

Look inside this issue

Following on from the last issue, the 2021 publication of the Graphene Directory, this months offering is back to industry news, funding and products. There has been a slew of recent investments, product launches, collaborations and commercial agreements.
This month’s issue focused on the market for Anti-Fog Coatings and Films, which has come to prominence lately through the use of facemasks and visors in multiple settings, and the difficulties from their use. Fogging by moisture condensation on transparent substrates presents a major challenge in several optical applications that require excellent light transmission characteristics, such as eyeglasses and vehicle windshields, and can lead to serious hazards involving in blurred vision, light scattering, energy consumption and safety hazard during the usage process of transparent glass and plastics. These problems limit the uses of transparent polymeric materials.
