The Cleaning, Polishing and Protective Waxing of Brass and Copper - Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) Notes 9/3

Cleaning enhances the appearance of copper objects, and helps to reduce further deterioration by removing sources of corrosion such as grease, dust, metal polish residues, and fingerprints. Polishing, by contrast, is an abrasive operation that removes tarnish and some surface metal. Repeated polishing results in loss of surface detail. Note that the frequency of both cleaning and polishing can be reduced by applying a protective wax coating. When cleaning a copper object, the first consideration is whether or not it should have a polished appearance. The appropriate appearance for an individual object must be determined by curatorial research and consultation. Work Space. BrassCleaningRepair. Front Porch Remodels & Upgrades.

Is the solar panel & battery combo ready to change energy markets?

Batteries have long been looked to as a way to store energy solar energy during the day to be used at night, but they have long been too expensive to be used widely. But many companies are looking at 2015 as a very important year for the solar and battery partnership and I’ve heard the word “tipping point” being used repeatedly about this intersection recently. Why all the excitement and why now? First off, traditional lithium-ion batteries — the kind being widely used in cell phones and laptops — are becoming cheaper than ever before. This glass sphere might revolutionize solar power on Earth. German architect André Broessel, of Rawlemon, has looked into his crystal ball and seen the future of renewable energy.

This glass sphere might revolutionize solar power on Earth

In this case it’s a spherical sun-tracking solar energy-generating globe — essentially a giant glass marble on a robotic steel frame. But this marble is no toy. It concentrates both sunlight and moonlight up to 10,000 times — making its solar harvesting capabilities 35 percent more efficient than conventional dual-axis photovoltaic designs. André Broessel was a finalist in the World Technology Network Award 2013 with the globe’s design and afterward produced this latest version, called Betaray, which can concentrate diffuse light such as that from a cloudy day. André Broessel’s latest invention looks like something out of a superhero movie. Organicarchitecture - Home. El nido de Quetzalcóatl.
