Date: 26 Dec 2017

Although natural light is essential to houses, especially townhouses, there might still be interior spaces where light cannot reach that not only necessitate electric lights but may also leave the areas feeling musty. With this issue in mind, Pruksa Real Estate Public Company Limited, in collaboration with the Siam Gypsum Industry (Saraburi) Co., Ltd. and Thai MMA Co., Ltd., a joint venture of SCG Chemicals Co., Ltd. and Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (Japan), has developed transparent access panels for bathrooms and ceilings in stairways - Thailand’s first access panel innovation that not only provide accessibility into the plenum but also helps with indoor lighting, gives a modern touch to a house and enhances its energy efficiency. Transparent ZERVEboard Access Panel The combination of transparent ShinkoLite acrylic sheets and ready-to-use ZERVEboard access panels has resulted in Thailand’s first innovative access panel that not only brings into any home beauty and natural light but also helps create hygiene and conserve energy.

When I Volunteered to Build Fish Homes

Date: 26 Dec 2017

Structure of fish homes by SCG Chemicals Fish homes by SCG Chemicals are triangular in shape and made primarily of PE100 pipes. The openings of these pipes allow water to flow in and out easily, and the complex structure creates crevices that are ideal living environments for small fish and other marine animals. Benefits of Fish Homes by SCG Chemicals They serve as nurseries for baby marine life that helps boost marine biodiversity. They revitalize coastal fishery resources. These structures have created centers for learning and research. They have become habitats for over 120 marine species: Economic fish such as yellowstripe scads, groupers, Talang queenfish, sardinellas, streaked spinefoots, Chinese demoiselles, sea bass, red frog crabs, mangrove swimming crabs, and mussels Ornamental fish such as batfish, rays, and African pompanos Sponge corals, gorgonians, and red algae Rock barnacles, bivalves, and sea cucumbers Phytoplankton and zooplankton Fishermen earn higher incomes from fishery. The initiative has resulted in a network of environmental conservation, with an addition of over 1,000 members annually. Let’s get to know PE100, the main material of the fish home. PE100 pipes are made with high-density polyethylene. Their key distinctive characteristics include: Durability Resistance to corrosion Resistance to high pressure Life span of over 50 years Eco-friendliness PE100 pellets of SCG Chemicals have been certified by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and obtained SFS-EN ISO 8795: 2001 certification from other institutes across the world. No hazard or release of toxic substances into the sea Read the full article clickhttp://viewer.publizh.com/scg/149491865?page=18

Innovative Operating Microscope Drapes for Brain Surgery

Innovative Operating Microscope Drapes for Brain Surgery

Think Together, Use Together, Develop Together: Innovative Operating Microscope Drapes for Brain Surgery for Better Access to Medical Care of All Thais Remark: The microscope drape is patent pending. If your business is looking for a “partnership” on design and material selection for product development to better meet your clients’ needs, please consult Design Catalyst by SCG Chemicals, Tel. +66 2586 2317 or reach us at our Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/DesignCatalyst After brainstorming sessions between the medical team and Design Catalyst by SCG Chemicals, it was concluded that the first innovation to be developed was “microsurgical operating microscope drapes,” which are put on operating microscopes so that surgeons can touch them without contact with germs. There were several reasons for the decision. The operating microscope drapes need to be sterile because they are used in near contact with organs. Because they can cause harm to patients if they are contaminated, these drapes should be disposed of after one use. Although they are sometimes sterilized and then reused, their safety cannot be guaranteed as there may be tears. In addition to cleanliness, each microscope model requires its own drapes, resulting in a monopoly. Also, because of their high prices, these drapes drive up operation costs. “This device consists of two main components, the lens cover and the drape. The lens cover has been designed to be flexible, durable, and bright in color, while the drape is a large thin transparent plastic bag about 2-3 meters in length. Also, the bag should produce no static cling when opened and should hang down without too much weight pulling it down. In addition, the material must be sterilizable with gamma rays and retain its characteristics when exposed to them. For this bag, we have chosen a material that is produced domestically to ensure proper production and cost management.” Read the full article fromAll Around Plastics Magazine issue 2/2017 | IBuilding Success Together or download All Around Plastics application via - App Store (iOS):https://goo.gl/PdD4tk- Play Store (Android):https://goo.gl/yt7Vza
