Soothing Silicone.

Can you tell I’m not in the mood for politics today? I’m not. I haven’t even checked the news, and I’m not going to check today. If the world explodes this day, I’d rather not know anyroad. Instead of anxiety, depression, and paranoia, have some soothing silicone:

Silicone Annealing – Cruz Culture.

Mixing Silicone for Rubber Moulding – Butser Rubber Ltd. (Yes, that name made me laugh.)

Life on the line: kneading pigment into silicon – Stephen Woolverton.

    Memorizing. Silicone is amazing stuff. Back in college my materials science prof was really into it. And if you don’t have a roll of self-fusing silicone tape in your toolbox (or kitchen drawer), order some now.

    That’s very interesting!! I love the way that the colot becomes pretty even in a small number of operations.

    That machine is scary, though. I’m surprised they have anyone handling anything bare-handed near rollers like that. The failure mode of that process is apalling.
