TWI recently helped Shine TV
in making a new specialist factual programme series entitled Wonderstuff. The programme makers required assistance with demonstrating the many uses of adhesives and in particular, those of epoxies. TWI's Dr Ewen Kellar was able to help by providing the expertise and technical knowhow to show how glue is the secret strongman in joining technology. All the demonstrations were conducted at TWI's headquarters near Cambridge.
Wonderstuff is a new series which delves into the unseen chemistry of our everyday lives. What goes into the stuff that we use, the cleaners, the cosmetics, the everyday products on which we rely? Revealing the ingenious and surprising science behind the common products that fill our homes, this new series offers fascinating insight into the products that make up our domestic world.
Journalist, writer and mother of two Jane Moore takes us on a journey of discovery as she hunts down the provenance and effectiveness of stuff like toothpaste, washing powder, cling film and epoxy adhesive.
Wonderstuff will be broadcast on BBC2 at 19:30 from Monday 25th July for 6 weeks until Monday 29th August.
