2. ADVANCED MATERIALS WITH STABLE CRYSTALLINE STRUCTURE / Ana-Alexandra SORESCU, Rodica-Mariana ION, Alexandrina NUTA, pp. 12-16
Abstract. In recent years, metalic phthalocyanines have received a special attention mainly because they are the starting point in obtaining functionalized materials that are important for many scientific areas such as gas detection sensors, solar cells with dyes, devices for nonlinear optics, pigments with excellent tinctorial properties or fotosensitizers for photodynamic therapy. Some of the metalic phthalocyanines are characterized by the polymorphism phenomena, their crystalline forms presenting different applied characteristics that are sometimes not suited for the desired applications. Copper phthalocyanine is included among these phthalocyanines, characterized by 5 crystalline forms (α, β, γ, δ, ε) with α and β forms showing interest in paint and varnish industry. This paper presents results obtained from the experimental studies of the synthesis and physical-chemical characterization of α-stable crystalline form for copper phthalocyanine, a pigmentary material obtained by means of embedding chloromethylated copper phthalocyanine in raw phthalocyanine, α-unstable form. The resulted materials were characterized by IR and UV-VIS spectrometry, X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetry and solvents resistance.

Abstract. A particular house built in the second half of the century XVIIIth with a special note in Romanian architecture of this period, has been evaluated in this paper. Now this house is in an advanced damaging situation and needs to be restored urgently. It is an unique architectural house from the south part of Romania region (with wood decoration), and the analysis from this paper had been recorded from detached not useful fragments behind the building, in order to identify the existing materials and to select the proper materials useful for restoration. Microscopy permits one to observe the structure of layers, EDXRF and ICP-AES allow elemental composition of samples and to identify the chemical groups present here. Raman spectrometry method was widely used for investigating the aging of wood from this building. The CIELAB color parameters were calculated and have been determined clarity (L*), red/green colour component (a*) and yellow/blue colour component (b*) and their derived magnititudes: chroma (C*) and tone (H*).

Abstract. This paper refers to coil set defect of very thin stainless steel strips. There are a lot of shape defects, simple or complex. The study and researches are very useful in clarifying the notion, finding the causes and some proposals in order to avoid and correction of the defect.

Abstract. The paper presents the possibilities that offers the use of Matrix of Quality Assurance to provide largest protection against nonconformities in the manufacturing process. Are presented the two indicators that highlight the level of protection provided: the overall quality of workplace (preventing the passage of nonconforming product downstream) and the overall quality of the factory (preventing irregular delivery of final products outside plant). So, the matrix allows assessing the level of protection (against non-quality) of a internal customer and external customer. But it highlights a shortcoming in the calculation of the two global indicators: no differentiation is made between failures according to their gravity. To take this into account and in this way to have a more realistic appreciation of the protection of the customer, it is proposed to weighting these indicators: new relationships take into account the gravity weight faults.
