23:35 Development of Tungsten Based Paper Capable of Blocking Radiation

August 1, 2012 · Filed Under Trendy Products · Comments Off 

Toppan Printing and Kyoto University have jointly developed a special tungsten-based functional paper capable of blocking radiation. The newly developed paper takes advantage of radiation blocking property of tungsten, blocking such radiation as X-rays as well as gamma rays. The new functional paper is very easy to manufacture, where it can be cut, folded, or even can be affixed to other materials such as films. Being lead-free, the new product can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications where it comes into contact with people. One such application is in area of medicine where the walls, doors and curtains of radiology rooms and radiation therapy rooms can be covered with the materials, or it can be used as simple shielding materials in operating theaters as well as medical wards where it is difficult to block radiations. It can also be used as shielding materials for floors that have been contaminated in nuclear medicine laboratories and for transport boxes for radioisotopes. Other practical applications involve in regions affected by the nuclear disaster and recovery work by protecting individuals working in radioactive conditions and simple radiation shielding of contaminated materials and waste. It can also be used as building materials for building new evacuation centers such as gymnasiums in the affected areas. Toppan Printing will make sample shipment of this new paper for the medical as well as décor materials industries.

Development of Super Heat Resistance IC Glass Tag for High Temperature Industrial Application

November 3, 2010 · Filed Under Trendy Products · Comments Off 

We all heard of IC Tags used for quality control and inventory and merchandising of some sort but you probably never heard of IC tags that can be embedded into shipbuilding pipes. Well, there are around 6,000 to 10,000 shipbuilding pipes go into constructing a ship, and over half of them are hot-dip galvanized otherwise known as plated for preventing corrosion. The pipes can easily be identified through printing or engraving on the pipe, however physical identification of these pipes after they are plated can be only possible by visually looking at their shapes and dimensions for the sorting process, resulting in human errors and inefficiency in shipbuilding operations. Use of IC tags in this process would provide an efficient way in sorting the pipes, however the guaranteed temperature limit for IC tags was originally 100 degrees Celsius, which make it impossible to be used under conditions for plating where temperatures can reach close to 450 degrees Celsius. In response to technical challenge, Toppan Printing has developed a prototype ultra heat resistance IC glass tag which can withstand a temperature of 450 degree Celsius. Read more
