Sandalolitha robusta is a species of dome coral in the family Fungiidae. It is found in the Indo-Pacific oceanic region. This is a large, colonial coral that does not attach to substrate along the seabed. Polyps are embedded in numerous individuals corallites and are separate from one another. They are bordered by alternating wide and narrow septae, calcareous (calcium carbonate) ridges which...

Kevlar

Kevlar, a trademark of para-aramid synthetic fiber, is related to other aramids such as Nomex and Technora. DuPont developed Kevlar in 1965 and was first commercially used in the 1970s as a replacement for steel in racing tires. Its normal form is as a rope or a sheet of fabric that can be used as an ingredient in composite material components. Kevlar is used in bicycle tires, racing sails,...

Registered to W. L. Gore, Gore-Tex is a waterproof/breathable fabric that was co-invented by Wilbert L. Gore and Rowena Taylor. In 1976, Robert Gore was granted a patent for a porous form of polytetrafluoroethylene with a micro-structure characterized by nodes interconnected by fibrils. Gore was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2006. PTFE is created by using an emulsion...

Napalm

Napalm, used for military operations, is a thickening/gelling agent generally mixed with gasoline or other fuel. The term napalm comes from the ingredients of aluminum salts of naphthenic and palmitic acids. This style of napalm, however, has been long obsolete in warfare. "Napalm b" is the modern version of napalm although it is distinctly different from the previous form. Napalm is often...

Nylon

Nylon, a synthetic polymer, was first produced by Wallace Carothers in 1935. It is one of the most commonly used polymers. The thermoplastic, silky material was first used in a nylon-bristled toothbrush, then women's stockings. Nylon was made of repeating units linked by amide bonds and is frequently referred to as ppolyamide (PA). There are two common methods of making nylon for fiber...

Cellophane
