Practical Uses of Carbon Fibre Fabric

Carbon fibre is mostly based on a tar like petrol based pitch, or a plastic commonly used for clothing textiles called polyacrylonitrile. It has an ability to withstand high temperatures and its molecular structure is much like graphite; very stable, giving it a high melting point and making it less likely to […]

Industries that Use Conductive Polymers

Conductive polymers (or conductive plastics) have led to major advances in technology because they do not conduct electricity and act as an insulator. Many industries have adopted this into their products, most of which we use today. Plastics have many advantages to them: they are durable, weather resistant, and they last a […]

A Guide to Using GIS in Power Plant Maintenance

In the past, geographic information systems (GIS) were used for mapping physical land based objects - such as parcels, lakes and roads - as well as storing attribute data about these objects. GIS was also used to manage electric facility data by creating connected networks and maps that model the […]
