Blocked keyways to become a thing of the past
Wrekin Products has created GritBlocker; a solution to blocked keyways, which can encourage unsafe removal methods of manhole cover lids and lead to wasted time on site. Manhole cover lids are removed by inserting and rotating the correct key into the keyway before safely lifting the lid from the frame. However, keyway pockets often fill with debris such as grit and stones, which prevents the use of the lifting key. This makes it more likely...
Three applications of plasma for glass pre-treatment
Plasma surface treatment is suitable for a range of applications on glass. Cold atmospheric plasma enables ultrafine cleaning, to remove contaminants and dust. By promoting wettability and adhesion, plasma is also suitable for preparing glass for digital printing. Here Peter Swanson, Managing Director of Intertronics, shares three successful applications of plasma surface treatment for glass.
