What does a manual toothbrush mean?
A manual toothbrush is a hand-held brush made out of hard plastic. The toothbrush has soft plastic bristles for cleaning the gums and between the teeth. Manual toothbrushes are manipulated by the person using them, moving the brush up and down over the teeth and gums to remove plaque, food, and debris.
Tools similar/equivalent to a toothbrush have existed as early as 3500 BC, and have been around since then. The following are their benefits (for modern toothbrushes at least!):
Speed control - Manual brushes not only allow for more speed control but also provide users with a greater ability to adjust pressure around areas that are sensitive or painful.
They are customizable – Manual toothbrushes have almost a limitless variation. They are obtainable in a wide range of head sizes: small, medium, and large sizes, and several have a convenient tongue cleaner on the back. They are also available in different grips, angles, lengths, and bristle stiffness, i.e. soft, medium, or hard. They also come in limitless color variations.
Easy to travel with – Manual toothbrushes can be carried in a simple case and there are no concerns about damaging them. They are lightweight and almost unbreakable and easy to travel with.
They are affordable – Manual toothbrushes are available at almost any store and at significantly affordable prices.
Easy to maintain – Unlike electric brushes, they don’t need charging, batteries, or any other accessory.
A preform is an intermediate product that is subsequently blown into a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) container. Preforms vary in neck finish, weight, color, and shape, and are specifically designed to meet the needs of customers in different market segments.
Preforms are manufactured from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), so they are called PET preforms. They are produced by RETAL using a highly-accurate injection molding process on equipment from the leading world vendors.
Preform weight depends on the end container’s desired volume. Preforms can be single-layer or multilayer. Barrier preforms provide additional benefits and increased beverage shelf life, thanks to a special layer embedded in several layers of polyethylene terephthalate.
RETAL offers a full assortment of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) preforms for packaging, transporting, and storing drinking water, mineral water, carbonated beverages, juices, nectars, baby food, dairy products, beer, low-alcohol and alcoholic beverages up to 40% abv, edible oil, mayonnaise, ketchup, sauces, household, and cosmetics products
Suspended Floors: All you need to know
What are they?
A PP suspended floor is a ground floor with a void underneath the structure. The floor can be formed in various ways, using timber joists, precast concrete panels, block, and beam systems, or cast in-situ with reinforced concrete. However, the floor structure is supported by external and internal walls. Supports underneath the floor are permanent and include sleeper walls or timber props placed at regular intervals.
Unlike standard ground floor construction, suspended floors are not sitting directly on the ground. This allows airflow and ventilation to prevent the mold and dry rot that would otherwise occur over the damp ground.
However, this airflow can leave the problem of draughts and cold in the house if not insulated correctly. Using insulated Thermofloor panels prevents these draughts and keeps the temperature constant while maintaining airtightness.
Artificial Grass / Turf
Artificial turf designed for sports is tough, tough, tough. It has to be, to withstand the volume of running feet, cleats, and types of grinding plant-and-turn moves players make during a hectic game. It is also far safer than natural grass, reducing injuries under any conditions and also allowing play to continue when conditions are wet.
When we talk about sports and turf, we think about teams of players and expansive playfields. However, there are styles of artificial turf that are ideal for “smaller” sports that are enormously popular here in the Bay Area. We’re talking about specialized installations such as backyard putting greens and bocce ball courts, even tennis courts.
Where artificial turf is action-oriented, artificial grass is the “good looks” side of the equation. That’s not to suggest that these longer, softer products aren’t equally durable, but they’re designed to provide maximum aesthetic appeal, too. We call it “grass,” but the product actually has three components.
The most important thing to know is that not all artificial grass is the same. Materials and workmanship used in manufacturing both determine the quality and value of the final product. Professional installation assures maximum longevity and performance.
Artificial grass makes a gorgeous lawn, plus there are specialized varieties that are ideal for children’s playgrounds and backyard play areas or for at-home dog runs and doggie daycare facilities. And just as artificial turf is safer than natural grass for players, our artificial grass for kids is safer than real grass, too.
Artificial Grass Turf has the following benefits:
No water waste or expense
Virtually no maintenance or associated ongoing expense
No build-in toxins or grass allergens (pollen)
No harmful residues from chemical applications
No need for sports facilities or event venues to repeatedly rip-up and replace expensive sod
WHAT IS PET?
Polyethylene terephthalate, also called PET, is the name of a type of clear, strong, lightweight, and 100% recyclable plastic. Unlike other types of plastic, PET is not single-use. PET is 100% recyclable, versatile, and made to be remade. That's why America's beverage companies use it to make our beverage bottles. ;
Even the Encyclopedia Britannica notes how unique and valuable PET is - "PET is the most widely recycled plastic. PET bottles and containers are commonly melted down and spun into fibers for fiberfill or carpets. When collected in a suitably pure state, PET can be recycled into its original uses, and methods have been devised for breaking the polymer down into its chemical precursors for resynthesizing it into PET. ;
America's leading beverage companies are working to get every bottle back so we can decrease our plastic footprint. We've joined preeminent environmental and sustainability leaders - World Wildlife Fund, The Recycling Partnership, and Closed Loop Partners - to launch an industry-wide initiative, Every Bottle Back, to increase the collection of plastic bottles so they can be remade into new bottles, reducing our reliance on new plastic and ensuring bottles don't wind up in places they shouldn't, such as lakes and rivers or wasted in a landfill.
About Plastic Crate
A foldable plastic crate is used for the storage of various goods and for shipping from one location to another. The goods are positioned in a crate, with or without cover, and set or stacked onto a pallet loaded onto a transportation vehicle such as truck or train car and shipped to its destination. Plastic crates provide protection of shipped and stored goods from damage or breakage and simplify the handling of goods.
Presently there are three types of containers used in the market today: wooden crates, cardboard boxes, and plastic crates.
Wooden crates were the traditional tool for storage and handling in the past.
Cardboard boxes were an advanced product used for lightweight goods and are limited in their application.
Plastic crates have been available on the market for about 28 years. In recent years, plastic crates have gained significant market presence and continues to grow.
Applications of Plastic Crates
The international trend has switched towards the use of plastic crates and they are already in use for storage and shipping in a wide range of industries such as agriculture, automotive, building and construction, clothing, electronics, food, fruit and vegetables, groceries in supermarket chains, bakeries, dairy, fisheries, freight forwarding, household goods, nurseries, pharmaceuticals, packaging, logistics, rubbers, and white goods.
Today, all companies, up and down the supply chain, are demanding lower costs from each of their suppliers as competition increases. Returnable and reusable transport packaging offer not only reduced costs but also increased efficiencies over most forms of one-way packaging.
Plastic crates are used in a wide range of applications. Some items, such as food packaging, become waste only a short time after purchase. The greatest advantage of plastic crates is that they lend themselves to be reused many times over.
