Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge Encourages the Use of Lead Free Ammunition

The Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge is encouraging deer hunters to use lead free ammunition in order to lessen lead exposure to bald eagles and other wildlife.

While humans are exposed to lead through paint and gasoline, animals are exposed through ammunition. Hundreds of bald eagleslive on the refuge and feed upon gut pile remains the hunters leave behind after dressing. Those remains contain lead bullet fragments, which the eagles may eat. The lead will then kill the eagles.

Fifteen national Midwest wildlife refuges are also asking deer hunters to switch to leadfree ammunition. Everyone’s goal is to protect wildlife health.

Improving Shots with Vibration Dampening

Golfers mostly always set out to strike the ball with the middle of the clubface in order to achieve the greatest distance and the best possible path. Some players, though, want to know right away if they’ve hit the ball off center, off the toe, or off the heel so that they can attempt to correct themselves. Such knowledge refers to the iron’s “feel.”

TaylorMade has developed irons with such feel. Its conventional looking P790 steel and graphite irons additionally attain distance and have a soft, forged (stamped from solid metal) feel. Maintaining both was a demanding challenge.

While TaylorMade used carbon steel in the body and clubface, they inserted SpeedFoam, an injectable Vibration damping material, into the clubhead. The SpeedFoam expanded to fill the area, but weighed just a few grams. The vibration...  Read More

High Density Plastics Help Urban Blight

In May 2014, Durham, North Carolina officials sought to combat urban neglect. The town couldn’t afford radical modifications, but it could cover certain blemishes. The city, therefore, prohibited plywood boarding on abandoned homes and instead used high density plastics. The city found that it made a tremendous difference for the neighborhood’s impression. It additionally steadied housing costs and even leveled the crime rate.

The construction company the city contracted installed see-through, sturdy polycarbonate on certain properties. The switch to high-density plastics further helped to sell vacant buildings. In 2011, when the city started focusing on blight, there were nearly 500 boarded-up homes. As of the beginning of 2017, only 56 buildings remained.

Helicopters Constructed of High Density Polymers

DART Aerospace, a world-leading producer and manufacturer of helicopter equipment, is just about ready to certify its Bell 505 Bear paw helicopters and just recently announced that it is accepting pre-orders.

Helicopters have always had balancing problems on soft terrains when it came to takeoffs and landings. DART Aerospace constructed its Bearpawswith high density polymers, which resist cracking, chipping and breaking and which additionally providesreliable and deliberate load transfers. The flexible high density polymers deflect under high-point contact loads when landing on rocks or roots and its inherent memory makes sure that the helicopter returns to its original shape.
