In "The Heat is On" Corrie Pelc reviews the future of flame-retardant textile protection including InnoSense's FirePhob - a family of nontoxic, non-halogenated, flame retardant materials. The article review was published in the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorist for the November/December 2015, Vol. 15, No. 6 issue.
Pelc's thesis is that fire retardants are one of the textile treatments which have a significant impact - protecting and saving lives. ISL's FirePhob flame retardant materials are featured here as an example of a novel effective, breathable, nontoxic FR treatment, but also of one which has the potential to reach a wider end user market. As FR treatments, such as FirePhob, become safer, cost-effective and long lasting, FR treated textiles could become a standard feature in more textiles.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a patent for Therm-E-Log on March 17 (United States Patent no. 8,979,361) to ISL. Therm-E-Log is a customizable time-temperature dosimeter, full claims and description can be found at the USPTO's full-text and image patent webpage.
Therm-E-Log was developed using government support under contract number W15QKN-09-C-0153, awarded by the U.S. Army Joint Munitions & Lethality (JML) Contracting Center. Therm-E-Log has been under development for use by the Army to monitor the temperature exposure of ammunition thus, also ensuring ammunition quality and personnel safety. Prospects for the wider use of Therm-E-Log by DoD agencies is high for in addition to the issued patent, Therm-E-Log field trials are also underway.
To find out more about Therm-E-Log and the technology behind it, visit our Therm-E-Log description webpage.
The Department of Energy has awarded ISL a Phase II contract for the work titled "Thermo-Mechanically Stable Tungsten Powders as Solid Catchers for the Fast Release of Stopped Rare Isotopes." This project is a continuation of the Phase I contract of the same name.
ISL's MOSRT sensor, a process-hardened, multi-analyte sensor for characterizing multiple rocket plume constituents in a test environment, was featured in NASA's Tech Briefs - Engineering Solutions for Design & Manufacturing. The Stennis Space Center discussed the relevance of the technology and the importance of the innovations offered by MOSRT to NASA programs.
