A new paint that makes robust self-cleaning surfaces has been developed by a team led by UCL researchers. The coating can be applied to clothes, paper, glass and steel and when combined with adhesives, maintains its self-cleaning properties after being wiped, scratched with a knife and scuffed with sandpaper.

Opinion and comment from UCL academics in the media
As human beings we are born helpless and entirely dependent on those who
care for us. Most of us are lucky to have had parents or guardians who
provided us with food, security and comfort. We form attachment
experiences with these caregivers that create a way to develop our
social skills and grow up with a sense of purpose and value in the
social world, says Professor Essi Viding and Professor Eamon McCrory (both UCL Clinical, Educational & Health Psychology) in The Conversation.
