This article reports that the Frommelt Products Eliminator Corp.'s GapMaster II dock shelter helps owners achieve maximum energy savings at the dock. Hooks on the side curtains wrap around the edges of open swing-out-trailer doors to prevent loss of heating/cooling energy. Made of durable foam core surrounded by a flexible polyethylene sheet and rugged outer fabric, the side frames can take repeated hits without damage, says the manufacturer.

    In this paper, polyethylene-octene elastomer (POE) and starch blends were studied. The compatibility beyween POE and starch was improved by adding polyethylene-octene/maleic anhydride graft copolymer (POE-MA) as compatibilizer. The compatibilization reaction was followed by FTIR spectra. The...
