For two weeks in December, Auburn, Alabama will transform a downtown section a winter wonderland. Using high density polymers that look and feel like actual ice, the town will turn a parking lot into 1,200 x 1,800 square foot ice rink that’s suitable for skating.
The high density polymer is slippery, just like actual ice, and skaters will be able to wear skates and glide along the surface as if it’s standard ice. In fact, the city doesn’t expect anyone to know the difference.
Since 1998, Ecomass Technologies has provided state-of-the-art solutions through advanced composite materials, engineered thermoplastic composite materials, high density plastics, high density polymers, and gamma ray shielding. It has worked with government and commercial customers to overcome physical property and material challenges and surpass application needs.
Ecomass’ focuses on the material challenges and provides original equipment manufacturers and material processors the innovative freedom to focus on form and function. It strives to provide its customers with the highest performing, lowest cost materials, and thus, empowers them to produce the finest parts possible, which then allows them to compete in their respective markets.
Ecomass’ high gravity compounds are engineered to replace traditional materials and have been used as a substitute for lead, aluminum, steel, stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper, and other metals in the following applications:
o To replace lead projectiles with nontoxic frangible projectiles as training ammunition for military and law enforcement personnel.
o To shield -ray and gamma ray sources in medical and industrial devices.
o As a Vibration damping material in the automotive and sporting goods industries.
o To balance weights and reduce the loads to which a part is exposed, thereby increasing its service life.
These are really just a few examples of what Ecomass industries’ compounds can do. Just look at what it did for Auburn, Alabama. It created an ice skating rink!
All Ecomass Compounds meet the EU RoHS Directive, are 100% lead free, do not contain any U.S. EPA toxic or hazardous materials, and comply with Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act.
