High Density Thermoplastics Improve Outdoor Water Safety Gear

Kids and water. Two things that simply cannot be separated during those hot summer months. Splashing around the bathroom and creating a mess sounds like a headache, but it’s entirely safe.

You also want them to go out and enjoy the great outdoors. You want them to bodysurf in the ocean. Dive into the swimming pool. Splash around the lake. Enjoy all kinds of water sports at the beach. However, their safety is a constant issue that keeps nagging you every moment they’re out there in the water.

High density thermoplastics could finally make life easier for parents. These composite materials are now being used to create all kinds of water safety gear and they really give you a peace of mind as you know they can go a long way in improving response time during emergencies and also prevent...  Read More

New Research Could Allow Frangible Projectiles to Disintegrate After Designated Distance

Frangible ammunition is pretty much the same than any other ammunition, with the key difference being that it uses a copper jacket instead of a lead core. The bullet is designed in such a way that when it hits a target harder than itself at full speed, it crumbles into pieces.

While this type of ammunition is expected to reduce the risk of collateral damage as the fragments are too small to cause any major harm, one of the biggest issues with frangible projectiles, and all other types of bullets for that matter, is that stray shots can often pose serious collateral damage, severe injury, and in some cases, even death.

Lead Aprons Could Be Block Radiation Exposure at the Cost of Lead Poisoning

Radiation refers to cancer-causing energy that is transmitted in the form of high-speed particles or waves by the sun. Humans make use of man-made radiation in nuclear power plants, cancer treatments and x-ray devices, and have traditionally depended on radiation shielding materials such as lead aprons to protect them from radiation exposure.

While lead aprons might be a great way of protecting against radiation exposure, it turns out that they also increase the chances of lead poisoning for those who use and work with these aprons. And considering that even low level exposure to lead can be toxic for both children and adults, it might finally be the time to permanently switch to lead-free shielding materials.

The Study
