The Center for Health, Environment, and Justice (CHEJ), Falls Church, Va., made headlines last month with its campaign against polyvinyl-chloride (PVC) use
  • Break it on purpose
    Highly Accelerated Life Testing during design can make products last longer and reduce service headaches. A unit clamped to the vibration table ready for testing is visible through the open door of the Halt chamber. Air ducts vector temperature-controlled air across the unit while the vibration
  • Slick as a whistle, hard as a rock
    . Nibron is usually applied using electroless plating. The process creates platings by reducing metals in a solution under controlled temperatures and pHs. Using a reducing agent containing boron, Nibron platings are "grown " at 0.0005 to 0.001 in./hr. Nibron coatings are well
  • Oil Or Grease, Natural Or Synthetic
    tension of most lubricating fluids. The film acts as a dam around the lubricated area to prevent oil migration and potential contamination of nearby, sensitive components. Greases are created by combining an oil with a gelling agent, usually a soap or a clay. It's the oil in the mixture

    production. This condensate is currently stripped of volatiles (consisting mainly of methanol) in order to reduce the consumption of bleaching agent. The condensate stripping capacity of the mill has therefore had to be increased. In addition, Mondi has requested that the concentrated vent vapours
  • Medical Device Link .
    to improve the blood compatibility of their devices. One option is to coat device surfaces with a hemocompatible material. In tests and in use, hemocompatible coatings have been shown to reduce surface clotting. Device manufacturers put off by the challenges of coating use, however, have been slow
