Few working environments are as unforgiving as the vacuum of space. As with any frontier, there are enduring challenges associated with the space industry. Efficient propulsion. Reliable communication. Protection of assets deployed at low earth orbit (LEO) and above. It's a multifaceted challenge that has grown more complex, yet also more manageable, over time. This [...]

Applications of Polyurethane Coated Fabrics

By |2024-01-22T16:19:59-08:00August 16th, 2023|

The health risks to workers in industrial factories with insufficient safety measures for chemical exposure is well-known. One family of chemical compounds under particular scrutiny recently is perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Sometimes colloquially known as ‘forever chemicals’, PFAS are often used as coatings for industrial textiles to improve strength, durability, and chemical and water [...]

Managing Diesel Exhaust Extraction While at Port

By |2023-06-21T23:55:53-07:00June 21st, 2023|

Diesel exhaust emissions pose a significant threat to air quality and human health. The toxic components found in diesel exhaust, such as particulate matter and nitrogen oxides, can lead to respiratory and cardiovascular problems. Because of this, managing diesel exhaust extraction effectively is of utmost importance, especially in port environments where diesel engines power various [...]

Fabricating Exhaust Ducts Using Silicone-Coated Textiles
