All metals, rubber, paints, leather, and lesser plastics will corrode, especially in harsh environments, close to the ocean or in polluted climates, which are becoming more commonplace with many relatively-new industrialized nations spewing corrosive gases into the borderless atmosphere.

Exobiotanica is, from what I can tell, a project that sends various plants to 30,000 meters, or nearly 100,000, feet from the earth’s surface. Though I think the theory behind this project might be a bit avant-garde for my tastes, the end result of a photograph like this is nothing short of miraculous. An outer space setting, seemingly on the edge of our atmosphere, is cold and harsh. Not where I would expect to see any live entity thriving. But seeing this bonsai tree in a floating terrarium, which could just as easily be in my apartment, makes one dream of the possibilities…..

Once every few years the whole world joins together around a single event. The Olympics do it to an extent, but there’s no other event quite like the World Cup. TV statistics help us get a handle on this. In the USA an estimated 111 million people watched this year’s Super Bowl (this may be thrown off a bit by viewing parties, for both the game and commercials). The Chinese Olympics drew a total of 3.6 billion viewers. The 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa drew a total of 3.2 billion viewers, marking a 10% rise in viewership over the 2006 world cup. Brazil, at 200 million residents, is the largest country to host a World Cup, since the USA hosted in 1996. I understand that the Olympics and World Cup are both drawn- out spectacles with many individual games, but I anticipate, given the worldwide infatuation with soccer, or futbol, that this year’s final will be the most watched event in history, topping the Beijing Opening Ceremonies as listed by official ratings.

We've had the good fortune to meet many engineers, managers, and business owners in all types of businesses, who are also musicians. I'm pleased to share my favorite Intercept Technology Packaging success story with this intriguing short video presented by Greg Spitz. If you're a musician, know anyone who is, or you just love music, you'll want to watch.... stringed instruments players, you may recognize the copper-colored bag shown in this video.
Many of our customers take extra consideration of rust and corrosion in the summer. Heat and humidity abound during summer time and can prove to be detrimental to metal and manufactured parts. Often times the winter months do not get the same attention. On a day in the country’s recent cold spell, a day when a polar bear in Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo found it too cold to go outside (to be fair it was -42 degrees with wind chill) this misconception could prove to be expensive.

When a man spends his entire career searching for the best ways to safely control quality in the industrial workplace, he earns the wisdom to be called an expert. John Murphy, Liberty Packaging’s Director of New Business, is a veritable fountain of knowledge regarding detergents, solvents, packaging materials, corrosion, quality in manufacturing and related topics.

We were energized during our time as exhibitors at EASTEC 2013 in Springfield, MA, last week. Building 3 of the facility was abuzz with innovation. Interested attendees, asking all the right questions, flooded the floor for all three days, including representatives from small and large manufacturers, local and international companies. The show truly lived up to it's tagline "human ingenuity, manufacturing brilliance". If you're involved in industry in the Northeast, or want to be, we recommend you get involved with EASTEC, sponsored by SME.

For some of us it is that glorious beginning to a season where we are anxious to see how our team’s off season acquisitions will fare against the rest of the big league. Others of us wallow in self-pity at Wrigley Field… either way I have always been captivated by the number of baseballs used during the course of an MLB.
Please enjoy these excerpts from a Copper Development Association Inc. article regarding the importance of copper and bronze to civilization. Intercept Technology packaging products have a copper backbone bonded into the plastics packaging that acts as a an atmospheric barrier to protect the product inside from corrosion, static charges, and mildew.
