Composite's award season is upon us! SBANE New England's Innovative nominees are due today and JEC's award's ceremony is a stone's throw away.
Brandonite® 4210 is a new cost-effective polymer-metal composite (U.S. Patent No. 8,487,029) that replaces lead, lead-encapsulated epoxy and other alternative radiation-shielding materials. It's available in a range of densities and hardnesses to meet your specific application -- from CT shielding to X-ray baggage scanners and is a low cost alternative to lead.
Globe is excited to introduce our new Model 2001 Run-Dry® impeller which now comes with a brass core to meet the most demanding water pump applications and is competitively priced against standard neoprene impellers.
Globe Composite Solutions, Ltd. is happy to be "contributing to the effort" -- with the Navy Metalworking Center (NMC); the NSWCCD; the Virginia Class Submarines (VCS) Program Office; the Strategic and Attack Submarines Program Office; and the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance -- to find the best, most durable and efficient, and most cost-effective materials for their Gradual Transition (GTC) SONAR baffle tiles' coating needs.
Brandonite® 4210 is a great low cost alternative to lead when used as a radiation shielding material and here at Globe we have just recenlty earned a patent for our innovative material. It's generally available at lower costs when compared to other alternative high-gravity materials and may provide customers with numerous secondary benefits. This material could be an effective hedge against recent lead and litharge price increases. Additionally, Brandonite® 4210 is an excellent material for protecting customers against possible or future environmental concerns, such as the removal of lead or lead-encapsulated litharge.
