    Increasing paperboard durability using neutron imaging 

    BillerudKorsnäs, LTH/Lunds Universitet
    Nov 2018 - Nov 2019

    Cellulose-based paperboard is a renewable, recyclable, and durable packaging material. Scientists from the packaging provider company, BillerudKorsnäs, and researchers from Lund University have used neutron imaging to explore ways to make this material better resist water.  Bridging knowledge gaps with neutron imaging   Paperboard is one of our most widely used packaging materials for packaging food and beverage products, including juices, milk, and cereal. The packages are […]

    Improving cutting of ultra-high-strength steel

    SSAB, Swerim
    Nov 2018 - Nov 2019

    The Swedish steel producer SSAB with help from Swerim AB and researchers at DESY investigated residual stresses introduced at the edges of the sheet during cutting operations. Using synchrotron X-rays, the company experts found that shear cutting leads to high stresses that can be dangerous for the ultra-high-strength steel (UHSS). The information is valuable for improving the cutting processes.

    Developing more durable concrete using neutron and X-ray tomography 

    Cementa AB
    Aug 2019 - Jan 2021

    To study what happens when concrete freezes, and is exposed to different types of moisture loads, Cementa AB, Malmö University, and Lund University have used neutron and X-ray tomography with the aim to develop concrete that is safer and more resistant to harsh weather conditions.
