To extinguish the fire, you need to isolate the oxygen with combustibles Combustibles Any substance that can react with oxygen or other oxidants in the air is called combustible. Most organic matter and a small part of inorganic matter are combustibles.

Reflective conspicuity tape is the reflective tape on the side of the truck body, can reflect the frame of the truck body in poor light situations, achieve the aim of warning. Why does the trailer need reflective tapes? Hard Speed control  According to the Newton's second law of motion: F=ma. The acceleration of an object is proportional to the force, inversely proportional to the mass of the object, and proportional to the reciprocal of the mass of the object; the direction of acceleration is the same as the direction of the force. Simply, the truck has a big weight, thus if you want to low the speed of the truck, you need big more force to reduce speed, and it is not easy to do in a short time because the truck has a big weight.  So the small vehicles need to keep a safe distance between the truck so that the small vehicle can avoid making a collision with a truck to result in long-distance pushing.  Parabolic problems for the product

After washing and dry out, supply the gloss painting, the printed product will show excellent visional effect. Advantage 1.  Can print design on the complicated shape  Hydro dipping can print the design on the complex concave and convex appearances, aim to solve the printing problem for complicated shape products, which is a problem that can't be solved by traditional printing technology.  No matter pad printing, screen printing, surface coating, or other processes, they can't print the design on the curved products.

The principle of 3M reflective material The 3M reflective material products are around our life, you can find them everywhere in the poor lighting environment, such as reflective raincoats, safety vests, reflective shoes, reflective helmets, etc.  All of them show high brighter visibility than their surroundings, do you know why it is so eye-catching in the poor light situation? I will show you the principle of 3M reflective material in the following. 3M reflective material is based on the principle of light retroreflection. In order to ensure the reflected light can reflect in the same direction as the incident light, 3M reflective material makes use of the (miro glass beads)/(miro prism) to control the path of reflected light.  Miro glass beads Miro prism Miro glass beads and miro prism on the surface of reflective material can collect the incident lights and refect them into the same direction, even the angle of incident light has a big change so that the 3M reflective material can
