Velcro patches can be used on uniforms for our police officers, military, doctors, and just about any type of uniform or jacket. These patches are 100% customizable for just about anything you want. Velcro is a fantastic material that is lightweight and very durable. We all know it was used initially by NASA. I have seen these patches used by service members and police officers as well. You can even stick a bowling ball on the ceiling if you want.

So what are some other ways to use Velcro? You can keep track of your remote, it can be used to hang pictures on the wall of your home, you can use it to keep your floor mat where you want it, even use it to organize your computer or TV wires. It literally has millions of uses and our society is much better because we have it. The best part is that Velcro is very affordable and just about anyone can have access to this great material.


How To Recycle Your Catalytic Converter

Posted on June 2, 2015 By

catA catalytic converter is a required component of the exhaust system of a gasoline engine as required by law. Since 1975 in compliance with EPA regulations regarding auto exhaust, car manufacturers are required to install a catalytic converter as part of the exhaust system. The purpose of a catalytic converter is to reduce the amount of dangerous emissions that are produced by the combustion of fossil fuels by converting them to harmless carbon dioxide and water vapor. This reduces the amount of greenhouse gasses released into the environment.

What many people are not aware of are the catalytic converter recycling facts.  Scrap catalytic converters are worth money. If your catalytic converter should fail, scrap recyclers will pay you money for your old converter. Precious metals including palladium, rhodium, and platinum are contained within the converter and act as the catalyst. Once these metals are extracted, they can be recycled which is a plus for the environment. In order to produce one ounce of platinum, seven to twelve tons of ore must be processed. For this reason alone every recycled catalytic converter counts.
