JVCC SCF-01 Single Coated Foam Tape is a low density, closed cell PVC foam tape in thicknesses of 1/16, 1/8, 3/16, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, or 3/4 inches. It is an economical, general purpose foam tape coated on one side with a high performance acrylic adhesive. Good combination of flexibility and conformability with strength & wear resistance. Also has excellent weatherability and chemical resistance. Used in applications requiring positive seals on irregular surfaces or when flexibility and conformability to seal tight radius curves are critical considerations. JVCC SCF-01 Foam Tape is used extensively in the automotive, HVAC and construction industries to provide air & weather tight seals; for gasketing, cushioning, vibration control in speakers, vehicles, electronic components and door frames. Also for filling and sealing gaps around windows, doors, and car/SUV tops for better insulation. It is a clean, waste free substitute for liquid sealants. Please make note that this a closed cell foam product (to compress it 25% it requires 0.5 psi for the 1/16 inch thick and 4.0 psi for the 3/4 inch thick); it is not soft like an open cell foam product would be. It also complies with European RoHS directive 2002/95/BC. NOTES: Sizes shipped will typically be the tape industry standard metric-cut sizes, i.e. 24mm for each 1 inch of nominal tape width ordered (rolls are approximately 5% narrower than the nominal size). This product's actual size is 1/8 in. thick foam x 6mm x 75 ft.
Sound, draft, heat, cold, and dust blocking acoustic partition closure and joint filler for interior, non-moving joints and gaps. QuietJoint is a non-mechanical, high-STC (Sound Transmission Class), non-invasively anchored closure that quickly and easily mates partitions to windows, mullions, or stud walls and blocks sound transmission between rooms. It is colorized, versatile, and ideally suited as a closure for gaps between the ends of permanent, semi-permanent, or movable partitions, window-wall, curtain-wall, head-of-wall and other conditions. QuietJoint features a mass-loaded fire-resistant foam core coated with commercial-grade silicone. It is offered in 13 silicone colors, coated on either 2 sides (SHH) or 3 sides (SHG). SHH (two-sided silicone) is ideal for gaps between opaque or solid partitions or walls. SHG (three-sided silicone) is typically used to fill gaps between the glass of curtainwall or windows on one side and solid substrates on the other. The third coating aesthetically covers the foam core so that the foam is not visible from the outside through the glass. QuietJoint is supplied in full-story, 10-foot (3-meter) lengths, uncompressed and slightly oversized. The material is compressed by hand and squeezed into the gap or opening. The silicone coating folds at its edges to absorb slight variations in substrates while maintaining a smooth appearance. The internal backpressure of the material mates it to the mullion or other joint faces.

Examines the possible societal impacts of wind energy projects and explains the potential issues faced when siting, constructing, and operating a wind energy project. This book begins with a history of wind power and the social impacts of both electricity and wind power from a historical perspective, a discussion of basic electrical terms, and a primer on the conversion of power in the wind to electricity. Much of the second half of the book is devoted to comparing wind energy to other forms of electric generation, both renewable and non-renewable sources. In order to have a true understanding of the impact of wind energy on society, one also has to have a thorough understanding of the impacts that other sources of electric generation have, such as fossil-fuelled plants or nuclear power plants. The comparison of electric generation sources includes a review of how such sources are typically utilized within the electric system, as well as the economic factors and environmental considerations that affect which resources utilities or operators of electric grids have to take into account. The authors conclude with a discussion of energy policies in the U.S., individual states, and foreign nations, how these policies influence the use of renewable energy, and what our future may hold in terms of energy supply and demand. Some highlights of this book are: Discusses the wind energy impacts on the environment, local economy, electric utilities, individuals and communities Provides a visual explanation of wind energy principles through tables, graphs, maps, illustrations and photographs Offers a comprehensive overview of the issues associated with the creation and use of wind energy Models chapters around an existing university curriculum Spanning the broad range of environmental, financial, policy and other topics that define and determine the relationships between wind energy technology and our energy-dependent society, Wind Energy Essentials is a resource for students, universities, and the entire wind energy industry.

Solar Energy presents an introduction to all aspects of solar energy, from photovoltaic devices to active and passive solar thermal energy conversion, giving both a detailed and broad perspective of the field. It is aimed at the beginner involved in solar energy or a related field, or for someone wanting to gain a broader perspective of solar energy technologies.A chapter considering solar radiation, basic principles applied to solar energy, semiconductor physics, and light absorption brings the reader on equal footing with the technology of either solar generated electrical current or useful heat. Details of how a solar cell works and then production of current from a photovoltaic device is discussed. Characterization of a solar cell is examined, allowing one the ability to interpret the current-voltage relation, followed by discussion of parameter extraction from this relation. This information can be used to understand what limits the performance of a given solar cell with the potential to optimize its performance. Applications of solar thermal energy are reviewed in detail from passive applications, for example the solar chimney, to active, such as the solar (power) tower, flat plate water heater, and solar thermal electricity generation. Consistency of analysis between the solar thermal applications is used enabling the reader to fully appreciate similarities and dissimilarities between these technologies. Ultimately, the scientist or engineer can understand existing systems, either photovoltaic or solar thermal devices, and design their own technology given the information in this book.
