    The present work deals with the preparation and characterization of improved fire-retardant ethylene-acrylate foams. A commercial formulation, usually employed in the cable industry sector, Casico, was modified using two ...
  • Mimicking bone extracellular matrix: Integrin-binding peptidomimetics enhance osteoblast-like cells adhesion, proliferation, and differentiation on titanium 

    Fraioli, Roberta; Rechenmacher, Florian; Neubauer, Stefanie; Manero Planella, José María; Gil Mur, Francisco Javier; Kessler, Horst; Mas Moruno, Carlos (2015-04-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Interaction between the surface of implants and biological tissues is a key aspect of biomaterials research. Apart from fulfilling the non-toxicity and structural requirements, synthetic materials are asked to direct cell ...
  • Surface immobilization and bioactivity of TGF-ß1 inhibitor peptides for bone implant applications 

    Sevilla Sánchez, Pablo; Vining, Kyle V; Dotor de las Herrerias, Javier; Rodríguez Rius, Daniel; Gil Mur, Francisco Javier; Aparicio, Conrado (2016-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    TGF-ß1 is the most related cytokine with the production of fibrotic tissue. It plays an important role on the production of collagen by fibroblasts and other types of cells. The inhibition of this cytokine reduces fibrosis ...

    Article
    Open Access
    En este artículo se presenta un resumen de la situación actual de la problemática del sistema catenaria-pantógrafo, indicándose los materiales que se utilizan o plantean utilizar. Este trabajo es un compendio de lo presentado ...
  • Experimental study of lateral pass width in conventional and vibrations-assisted ball burnishing 

    Gómez Gras, David; Travieso Rodriguez, Jose Antonio; Jerez Mesa, Ramón; Llumà Fuentes, Jordi; Gomis de la Calle, Bernat (2016-02-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    Burnishing is a mechanical finishing operation performed on workpieces to enhance their surface quality through plastic deformation. One of the main issues to understand the overall process is the behavior of the elastoplastic ...
  • Reactive extrusion: A useful process to manufacture structurally modified PLA/o-MMT composites 

    Cailloux, Jonathan; Bin Raja-Nazri, Raja Nazrul Hakim; Santana Pérez, Orlando Onofre; Bou, Jordi; Abt, Tobias Martin; Sánchez Soto, Miguel; Carrasco, Felix; Maspoch Rulduà, Mª Lluïsa (2016-05-26)
    Article
