Will you be rooting for Team GB at the 2018 Olympics?

imagesThe Winter Olympic are due to kick off later this evening in Pyeongchang, South Korea.  More than 2,000 athletes from 92 countries across the world are set to take part in some spectral events in the attempt to win medals and pride for their Country.

Will Team GB be able to Ski Jump to victory or maybe they will be able to stake rings around their components not to mention the cool runnings of the Bobsleigh team.

Masterflex will be cheering on Team GB.  I’m sure they will do us proud.

Come on team GB – let the games begin!

Munich – 60 years on – remembering the “Busby Babes”

images

On 6th February 1958, the aircraft carrying the Manchester United football team, its staff, journalists and supporters crashed, killing 23 of the 44 passengers.

United had just beaten Red Star Belgrade and where on their way home from Belgrade when they stopped at Munich Riem Airport for re-fueling.  With a blizzard blowing and vision poor, the aircraft attempted to take off 3 times, but a layer of slush prevented the aircraft from taking off and it crashed into a fence and hit a house.  Twenty passengers died on board, and three died later in hospital. Forever remembering the Busby Babes 60 years on.

Happy birthday Karl!

IMG-20150129-WA0005_resized

One of our skilled production operatives is celebrating his birthday here at Masterflex today.

Karl Summerscales (also known as Taz) has turned 33 today.

He has worked at Masterflex for 10 years.

On a daily basis you can hear Karl singing to the radio, whilst setting the equipment up ready for the hoses to be made.

He enjoyed an eventful night out in Manchester with his friends over the weekend but is now hard at work making the hoses.

Give Masterflex a call, place an order and Karl maybe the one who manufactures your product.

Asbestos Removal

Deconstruct_asbestos_removal

What is Asbestos and Asbestos removal? 

Definition of Asbestos:

‘Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material the name covers any of six incombustible, chemical-resistant, fibrous minerals of impure magnesium silicate, occurring in either serpentine or amphibole form, and used historically in many products, including fire proofing, electrical insulation, building materials, brake linings and chemical filters. Owing to health hazards, notably lung damage from asbestos inhalation, use of asbestos has been restricted and its removal has been mandated in many instances’.

Where is Asbestos used?

Asbestos was widely used as an insulation and fire proofing solution. In particular, it found its way into products like ceiling tiles, pipe insulation, boilers, sprayed coatings and garage roof tiles in buildings such as houses, factories, offices, schools and hospitals. It was even used in clothing, a handkerchief in the 18th Century, and Charlemagne the Roman Emperor was said to have a tablecloth made entirely from ‘Salamander Hair/Wool’ – the Roman name for asbestos.

Why should we remove asbestos?

It has now been proven that the fibres from asbestos can cause serious harm to people’s health. Asbestos inhalation can lead to breathing problems, lung cancer and mesothelioma, causing around 5000 deaths every year, with around 500 new cases coming to light yearly.

As this has become an important issue, the need to remove asbestos has increased over the years.

How can we help you remove asbestos?

Masterflex manufacture hoses on-site that can be designed to suit your asbestos removal requirements. One hose in particular that would help the removal of asbestos is the Masterclip Vinyl.
