Lead Poisoning Claims Even More Victims

Lead has been used by humans in various forms throughout the ages. From cooking utensils and beauty to commercial and industrial applications, this deadly toxin found its way into all walks of life before humans woke up and realized the danger that it posed in front of humanity and its future generations. Lead was consequently banned in the United States by the mid-nineties, but somewhat bafflingly, it is still used in bullets used to hunt small animals and game birds and in fish tackle. And this is when lead free ammunition is easily and readily available!

Why You Should Switch to Frangible Ammo

Bullets have been around for a really long time. Man began using bullets made out of lead, stone or clay millennia before the concept of firearms was even developed and the Romans even managed to take the basic bullet to the next level with whistling bullets that traveled at speeds of 100 meters per second and were made using 1-ounce lead balls in their centers. The modern-day bullet has evolved tremendously, with one particular invention holding center stage- the frangible bullet.

The Purpose of a Frangible Bullet

Frangible bullets


Frangible projectiles were first created for shooting galleries back in the mid-20th century, but as science started to gain a foothold in the industry and the world progressed to a new era, these projectiles became more and more advanced. The main purpose of a frangible bullet is to eliminate or reduce...  Read More

Vibration Damping Materials Enjoying Global Recognition

Vibration damping materials are becoming more and more important in modern-day industrial and electronic tools and applications. They can be used to reduce or eliminate noise in cases where vibration and resonance are common problems as well. These materials essentially change the natural vibrating frequency of a product to reduce the radiated noise and increase the transmission loss of the material.

An Increased Demand

Recent years have seen the world waking up to the boons of using vibration damping as a source of reducing noise and improving performance. An increased demand is also expected to see a huge rise in the revenue generated from Vibration dampening materials. This increase is primarily due to the increase in demand of durable products, and also because of new-found uses for vibration...  Read More

Specific-Gravity Thermoplastics Open New Doors

Thermoplastics and High density materials continue another year of growth as recent developments and innovative design changes allow these materials to offer even more benefits in all kinds of environments and applications. Thermoplastics found a place in mainstream business due to their ability to decrease the part count or weight of parts in a particular tool or appliance. Turns out that a new class of heavy plastics and high density compounds are entering the picture, ones that have a specific gravity varying between 1.8 to 10.

Importance of Radiation Safety in Healthcare

Thomas Edison made history when he invented the fluoroscope, but soon stopped his research after his assistant died from x-ray overdose. Marie Curie changed the world when she discovered radium, but soon died due to exposure. Modern-day experts have a far better understanding of how radiation works and are much better equipped to protect themselves from radiation poisoning with the help of radiation shielding and radiation protection methods. However, since radiation is odourless and invisible, it is easy to get complacent about its dangers, and that’s where we’re failing as a society. Radiation exposure can lead to all sorts of health issues, and it is essential to understand the importance of radiation safety.
