A flocked dance-floor - KIWO as tactile art

600 square metre foam surface in the central hall of the museum, under the impressive glass dome

Early in 2015, KIWO became a part of an artistic dance performance in the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Museum of Fine Arts) in Santiago de Chile. The modern dance performance should take place in the central hall of the museum, under the impressive glass dome.  

 

For this purpose, a special kind of dance floor was needed: A foam surface of ​​about 600 square meters, which should be flocked to create a soft sub-surface combined with good rubbing resistance that perfectly adapts to the demands caused by the dancers. No problem for the KIWO flock adhesive systems. First, the adhesive was sprayed onto the substrate in situ and then the flock was applied with a hand-held applicator.  

 

The feedback of the artist, the dancers and visitors was literally “Wow, how exciting - you simply had to feel it”.

Glass adhesives for durable and crystal-clear bonding

A very good capillary action, which is advantageous for glass lamination and edge-bonding, is best achieved with low-viscosity adhesives. High viscosities allow selective application of the adhesive.

 

The bond strength of the different grades was tested on different materials. In addition to high tensile shear strengths when bonding glass to glass and various metals, secure bonding of plastics such as ABS, polyamide or PMMA is also possible.

 

Coloured UV glass adhesives are available in addition to the colourless versions. This provides the user with a wider variety of applications without losing bond strength, transparency and UV stability.

SBQ-based Screenprinting Emulsion Technology

Dr. Roland Studenroth, KISSEL + WOLF GmbH

 

 In the course of the 80s, a new technology from Japan edged its way into the screenprinting market. This was the technology of single-component emulsions based on SBQ. The abbreviation SBQ is derived from the product name "Stilbenium quarternized" and specifically means that a water-soluble, UV light-sensitive stilbene group is chemically bonded with the polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) contained in emulsions (see Figure 1), so that for light sensitizing a second component, such as diazo is no longer needed. Because of it being a single-component product, the SBQ emulsion technology first experienced a boom, but also contributed at the same time to the perfectioning of the alternative dual-cure diazo technology. Today both technologies are firmly established in the market and complement each other, i.e. there is dual-cure technology also found in SBQ-sensitized products and to achieve specific properties, SBQ emulsions can be additionally mixed with diazo compounds.
