Selection parameters for short-term surface protection

When identifying solutions for short-term surface protection, some or all of the following five parameters should be considered:
  1. Time: How long will temporary surface protection be adhered to the product? Typical times can range from one hour to years.
  2. Temperature: What will the exposure temperature be? For example, in Phoenix or Texas, extremely hot temperatures can be common and tends to soften any adhesive films. Also, will the product be exposed to cold temperatures during shipping or storage?  Paint or spray on liquid protection for tubs or windows are both cold sensitive.
  3. Temperature exposure: What will the duration of temperature exposure be? 
  4. Substrate: Is the substrate that will be protected metal, wood, plastic, glass or other material?
  5. Conditions: What conditions will the product be exposed to, for instance, salt in coastal environments high humidity, or ultraviolet exposure from sunlight, fluorescent light or other sources?

As always, feel free to contact your surface protection experts at Builders Site Protection if you need help determining the best products to use for your particular jobsite.

New Smart Helmet hardhat paves the way for intelligent construction practices

Daqri, a developer of augmented reality products based in the USA has launched a hardhat called Smart Helmet.

While it may not have taken the internet by storm like tech giant Apple’s wearable, Apple Watch did, Daqri’s Smart Helmet adds a whole new perspective to how technology can be used to pave the way for intelligent construction practices.
The helmet can map out the entire construction site for its user, as well as notify the user about any maintenance requirements for machinery.Multiple Smart Helmet models can be integrated, meaning construction workers on large scale projects can stay connected through the helmet’s common interface instead of having to rely on cumbersome paperwork to come through. Construction companies can also develop their own apps to work with the helmet.
The company is expected to start shipping Smart Helmet models in October, but product pricing is yet to be revealed. Global tech circles, however, expect the helmet to come at a steep price.
