Mr. McGuire: “I want to say one word to you. Just one word.”

Benjamin: “Yes, sir.”

Mr. McGuire: “Are you listening?”

Benjamin: “Yes, I am.”

Mr. McGuire: “Plastics.”

Benjamin: “Exactly how do you mean?”

Mr. McGuire: “There's a great future in plastics.”

Of course every article that even comes close to mentioning plastics quotes that fabulous scene between Benjamin and Mr. McGuire in the 1967 film, The Graduate. It’s too good to ruin the tradition. If you’ve never seen it and/or are too young to have ever heard about the film, go see it.

The Use Of High-Density Thermoplastic Material Formulations In Diverse Applications

High Density thermoplastic material formulations are currently being used for lead replacement for health, safety, and environmentalconcernsandto increase part density without using metals.

High-density Thermoplastic formulations provide a high specific gravity and afford a significant advance in part mass without metal’s design limits, costs, and complicated processing. Put it in place of conventional plastic and it’ll add weight and mass for higher quality, all while maintaining the same part design and volume.

Plastic Compounds Replace Lead In Radiation Shielding

In 2006, the European Union adopted the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directives, which the European Union and many other countries followed, including the United States. It called for suitable lead replacements in medical devices. Lack of appropriate substitutes allowed for extensions and many companies are working on developing suitable alternatives.

For decades, lead was the standard in radiation shielding. It was inexpensive, simple to process, and successfully offered protection. Lead, however, is toxic. No one wants to be near or around it anymore. Radiation, of course, isn’t good either. So, what offers sufficient lead replacement?

Improving Through Engineered Thermoplastics

All around the world, people are becoming more environmentally conscious. Many cities around the world and in the United States are developing bicycle ride share programs. People are encouraged to use the bicycles, instead of taxis, public transportation, or cars. The response in certain cities has been extremely positive and many residents are enjoying biking around to work and social events.

All the riding is also placing a strain on the bikes. Earlier this year, China, whose program is really successful, sought a way to make a tougher tire as the air-filled ones on their bicycles were suffering terribly. Engineers are going to experiment with engineered thermoplastics utilizing composite materials and attempt to create a better tire.

Toxic Free Radiation Protection

The idea of radiation might conjure thoughts of nuclear bombs, but, actually, radiation is all around us. It’s in our microwave ovens, our radios, and it even develops from the earth. Not to worry, though. radiation is simply energy that travels space as high-speed particles or waves.

There has been a proliferation of important technology which produces radiation as a by product of its use, and as such it’s important to understand proper radiation shielding safety. Most of us are familiar with x-rays, MRIs, and CT scans. They all use radiation to perform their tasks. The tests certainly help physicians, but exposure can cause damage to our tissue and DNA, so we need some form of protection, as do the individuals who conduct the tests. There are also individuals who work in plants and factories where radiation is utilized. They...  Read More
