How do you polish a piece of steatinite that’s been in the furnace for thousands of years?
A simple solution to this puzzle is a new type of coating, called a steatonite block, that’s designed to keep the material from getting oxidized and degrading over time.
This new type, called an antenna, is used in applications including antireflective coatings for windows and glass, as well as for a number of other applications.
Antenna coating The new coating is a unique and complex product made by a company called S&H Technologies, based in New York City.
Antenna coatings are made of a substance called ferric ammonium sulfide, or ferrous ammonium.
It’s the type of compound used in the metal coating on an electric car’s windshield and is often used to make other coating types.
In this case, the new coating has the added benefit of making the material more resistant to the sun.
“It’s a new coating that has the advantage of being stable, it’s flexible, it has excellent resistance to oxidation and it’s highly resistant to chemical degradation,” said Michael Breslow, an associate professor of materials science and engineering at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
“The technology itself is new and innovative.
It has the potential to change the way we coat the environment, the way people interact with their environment.”
For instance, Breslows team made a coating that absorbs light, rather than reflecting it back as a surface.
“We’ve been using it in a lot of ways to coat the air for a long time,” he said.
“A lot of things that are reflective in nature are really, really expensive to coat, but the solar ultraviolet light we use to do that is expensive.
So the coating we’re making is inexpensive, easy to use, doesn’t require any kind of expensive materials.
It just takes the UV light, turns it into a chemical and then we use the chemical to turn the chemical into something that we can coat in the air.”
The coating is an easy process to use and the team is looking forward to testing the coating in a lab.
“What we want to do is figure out how to make the coating more versatile,” Breslo said.
“We’re going to try different materials, different coatings, different ways of making it.
And then we’re going start to see if we can apply it to a variety of applications.”
The technology developed by S&h Technologies is a bit more complicated than the typical coating.
The new version has a unique layer of silica, which is more difficult to coat than a regular coating, according to the team.
“In the past we’ve been looking at coatings that were made from a material that’s made up of silicates,” said Breslaws senior materials scientist, Thomas Pohl, who worked on the project.
“So we were going to do something where we would have a silicate layer on top of the coating that would absorb a certain amount of UV light.
That’s the way that we’ve come up with this.”
The team used silica to coat steatones, which are extremely difficult to treat, according the team, but it’s the combination of the silica layer and the other coating materials that gives the new version of the antenna an added protection from UV light and other UV rays.
“When you’re dealing with a lot more than just the ordinary UV rays, you need to be looking at the silicate layers that you use for coatings,” Bredlows said.
The silica is also a very important part of the new antenna coating.
It absorbs a great deal of energy, which then heats up the material and helps it stick to the surface.
That’s important because the surface of the steatone is much thinner than that of most other materials, which means the heat from the sunlight has to travel all the way through the material before it reaches the coating.
“If we can protect the surface with this silica coating, we can make it much more resistant,” Breglow said.
