What is baking paper made of?
== High density paper treated with acid == Baking paper (Vegetable parchment) is made using high density paper (made from regular wood sources) that goes through an acid treatment. The result is strong, non-stick and heat-resistant. Silicone and other oil-based coatings are sometimes added to make it non-stick. It is also good for easy clean up, it is not just for baking you can use it to line a basket to put food in at parties

Asked in Arts and Crafts, Manufacturing, Furnaces
What is furnace glass?
Italian glass blowing techniques such as latticinio and zanfirico are adapted here to make beads. Furnace glass uses large decorated canes built up out of smaller canes, encased in clear glass and then extruded to form the beads with linear and twisting stripe patterns. No air is blown into the glass. These beads require a large scale glass furnace and annealing (glass) kiln for manufacture.

What is the best way to remove fiberglass from your skin?
friendus Duct tape. The hair may go away too, so be warned. Take a piece of duct tape and place it on the skin and it will stick to the fiberglass fibers that are still above the skin. Remove the duct tape and the glass goes with it. If the fiberglass has worked its way below the skins surface, nothing can be done. Take a hot shower, not too hot as this will make your pores swell, you only want them to open. Then, take a piece of pantyhose and gently wipe your skin . This should help pull the glass out. A good rinsing after. Do not rub or scratch it . This will drive it further in . To prevent the fiberglass from getting you to begin with, buy some Invisible Glove it is a hand cream that will dry up and keep it from getting into your skin. It can be purchased at most auto paint supplies or at Ace Hardware Stores or search online. My husband has been a yacht builder for over 30 years and he's had to deal with this all that time. Take a good cup of Epsom Salts and add some boiling water to it. Then run a bath with WARM water, add the dissolved Epsom Salts in it and soak for 20 minutes to 1/2 hour (not bubble bath, just plain Epsom Salts.) Get up and shower after the bath. Towel off. My uncle would use epsom salts to draw out steel slivers from his hands when he worked for a steel mill. If you find you have a rash on your face or any part of your body that shows then use Lanocaine (topical ointment) and the red will fade.

If you go to http://www.cortecvci.com/Publications/Reports/reports.php you will find the following list with all manafacturer I know of This list is however only indicative of people active in selling VCI finished product. There are chemical companies that specifically develop VCI's such as Pentakem in South Africa, Cortec in USA, Daubert, Viba in Italy, C.P.T. in the UK etc. there are many more but you have to be careful of the technology as many companies used ancient dangerous VCI's from the 1940's.

Is linen the same as cotton?
Prior to 1850 what was the main reason the north developed an economy increasingly based on manufacturing while the south continued to rely on an economy based on agriculture?
In the South, the effect of the cotton-gin on the production of short-staple cotton, so profitable that Southerners felt they didn't need to develop any other industries. In the North, technical advance and big immigrations from Europe, encouraging the factory way of life, where slavery was not needed.
Is aluminum harder than gold?
Aluminum is slightly harder than gold. In a way yes and in a way NO. It depends on the purity and the age of both metals. Pure gold - 24 carats is far softer than aluminum or aluminium, whereas 9 carat gold which is an alloy of gold and other metals may be harder. You also need to consider what happens to aluminum when it is exposed to the air and over time will deteriorate as it is chemically corroded and ages. It softens and loses its strength. Gold does not corrode, it does not deteriorate - it is classed as a noble metal. So long term gold is stronger, harder than aluminum. Aluminum is used in overhead power lines, airplanes etc., gold would be more efficient at transmitting electricity, but it would be useless to construct an airplane.
How much does 1 inch thick 96 x 120 inches steel weigh?
in carbon steel it will weigh 3,267.2 lbs. For weight of we have to know:- 1. volume (in cubic centimeter) 2. density so now 1 inch = 2.54 cm 96 inch = 96*2.54=243.84 120 inch = 120*2.54=304.8 so volume=(2.54*243.84*304.8)=188779 cubic cm density = 7.8g/cm3 (varies based on alloying element from 7.8 to 8.05) now mass= density*volume m= 7.8*176980.29=1472476.022 gram= 1472.5 kg=3246.25 lbs (depends on density)
