If you have ever experienced a tacky mess when trying to bond laminates under high temperatures, Stevens Urethane has a solution with its new "super-high-melt" polyether thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). Stevens ST-1665 is said to provide one of the highest melt temperatures available in a thin urethane film, between 190 and 210C. Because it requires a higher than usual temperature to become tacky and bond with other materials, its strength and barrier characteristics are not affected by processing temperatures that might melt "normal" urethane films. In multi-layer laminations, the material is typically used on the "high-heat" side of the lamination. The high-melt urethane maintains its integrity and performance properties, while films on the other side of the substrate soften and bond, forming a multi-layer lamination.

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
