Plastic that cant get heated
« on: May 26, 2020, 09:15:57 PM »
Years ago i saw a vid on yotube, i think it was short vid, but maybe it was part of a documentary about a guy who invented a polymer that cant get heated, let alone burned. It was VHS quality from mid 90s i think.

They coated an egg in this and treated it with plasma torch for like 5min, after they removed the coating, outside of the egg barely got bit warm, inside was totally raw.

Anyone seen it, i cant find it anymore.

  It turned out to have a very short life span that could not be fixed. It would break down and then not work.

Hmm I had a friend who was actually a customer of mine first... They did the fireproofing at The world trade center towers [elevator core] and newer building 7 [which sadly also went Poof in 9/11] and other buildings in NE USA ,he called me one day all excited for me to come and see this new invention for fireproofing heavy iron [or anything I suppose .?]He had me hold a sample [with my hand] while he heated it with a torch...didn't get hot...played around for quite some time making his point [and trying to burn me  :o
never got burned and he tried very hard...I will call him and ask what became of it ?it was supper thin and white in color..seemed Miraculous at the time .
I have often wondered what became of that tech..

do you have an Open source application ?
FE related ?
thxChet

Interesting, it probably got burried in sands of time.

Do i have an Open source application FE related? Not sure what you mean.

I have often pondered if such a super thin heat shield could be of some FE benefit [application]My question seems appropriate ...since

we are after all in an FE  open source  Forum ?
do you have an application for an experiment ?
I will call my friend regardless...to be clear I am not attempting to be difficult ,just curious.
Thx Chet

I guess it could be used for FE but i was just fascinated with unheatable plastic.

Yeah, I was thinking Aerogel, invented by NASA. I think they want to use it on the space shuttle.

Silicone will also survive temperatures of 450-500F. That's why they can make baking pans out of it.

Starlite replication here:

Quote
In this video I attempt to recreate a lost supermaterial called Starlite. This material could supposedly resist temperatures up to 10,000 degrees Celsius, having undergone testing by NASA and the Atomic Weapons Establishment in the UK. I believe in this video I have come close in function to the original formula for Starlite, but there is still some work to be done.
