  • Flame Resistant Clothing

    Flame resistant (FR) clothing is designed as a means or protection against potentially fatal flash fire and arc flash environments.  The main source of fatal and serious burn injuries are usually due to the igniting of an individual’s clothing.  Flame resistant clothing allows precious time for the person wearing the clothes and also helps to prevent clothing ignition.  Keep in ...

  • The Inevitability of Change and Resistance to Energy Efficient Lighting

    Change is inevitable. It is one of the only constants in life, and as the saying goes, nothing ever stays the same. Despite the truth behind this, most societies and cultures have historically demonstrated a resistance to change. Perhaps nowhere is this currently more evident than in global efforts to promote a change to energy efficiency awareness and the new technologies intended to speed the ...

  • Nonformaldehyde Flame Retardant Finishing of the Nomex/Cotton Blend Fabric Using a Hydroxy-Functional Organophosphorus Oligomer

    Multifunctional carboxylic acids, such as 1,2,3,4-butanetetracarboxylic acid (BTCA), have been used as durable press finishing agents to produce wrinkle-resistant cotton. In our previous research, we used BTCA as a nonformaldehyde bonding agent in the flame retardant finishing system based on a hydroxy-functional organophosphorus oligomer (HFPO) for cotton. In this research, we investigate the ...

  • Bromine Recycling With Energy Recovery From Plastics of E&E Equipment as Part of an Integrated Waste Management Concept for Weee Plastics Containing Brominated Flame Retardants

    Bromine is used as the building block for some of the most effective flame retarding agents available to the plastics industry today. They are used to protect against the risk of accidental fires in a wide range of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) such as computers, tele-visions, radios, video and stereo systems. Brominated flame retardants (BFRs), as all flame retardants, act to ...


  • Surface Coating and Metal-Based Organic Additives—Approaches for FRSS PVC Cables

    Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is one of the most widely used polymers today. One of its major applications is in electrical and control cables. Although PVC is intrinsically self-extinguishing, it supports flame spread along its length because of the additives used during processing. The spread of fire along electrical cables may be alleviated either by using flame-retardant smoke-suppressant (FRSS) ...

  • How fire can be tamed

    Combustion dies at the interface between breathable air and macroscopic pieces of certain involatile fuels. If fed only them, in a compressed oxygen chamber, it makes an almost sunlike flame that cannot run wild. If upon dilution to manageable coolness the ash drops to the chamber bottom, and from there can be removed without the diluent, true harnessbrokenness is possible. Excess oxygen can be ...

  • Detecting Hydrogen Gas and Fires: Seeing the Unseen

    Hydrogen usage is growing. The general public sees and reads about hydrogen as an alternative fuel for cars. However, the big use for hydrogen is found in hydrocarbon processing and other important manufacturing processes. Hydrogen is the first element on the periodic table and is an essential element in the manufacturing of many of our everyday products. We must have respect for its explosive ...

  • Advantages Of Carbon Fiber Tube

Compared with plastic products, the strength of carbon fiber tube is several than than that of plastic products, so the light and high strength is the significant feathers of carbon fiber composites materials. ...


  • Quantitative Analysis of Fluorine (9F) by EDXRF

      Fluorine compounds possess a wide range of properties, including flame retardance, water repellency, anti-fouling property, and heat resistance, and are therefore used in a wide range of fields from articles for everyday use to semiconductors. However, since the 1980s, the problems of global warming and ozone depletion in addition to the potential for bioaccumulation have led to ...

  • Bird netting for warehouses, hangars and large commerical applications

    Pest birds can be both a hazard and an expensive nuisance when they nest and gather in hangars, under overhangs, warehouses and other large covered areas. But thanks to bird netting, many of these problems can be avoided.Clearly the most obvious problem created by pest birds is their droppings. These can quickly clog gutters and down pipes. They can also cause ceilings, rooftop turbine ...

  • Bird netting can save you big money

    Pest birds have been with us since man first crawled out of his cave and decided to build huts and grow food. These mischievous birds pecked and pooped on early shelters, ate food crops, infected water sources and food storage. Times have changed. But pest birds remain a huge problem, ostensibly improved by technology"s ability to eradicate huge flocks of birds with poisons, yet restrained by ...
