We are very proud to announce that 2 of our TCB-Arrow team have recently completed the Help the Heroes Dawn Raid bike ride! Leaving Horseguards parade at 3.30am, they cycled a total of 100 miles finishing on Southsea sea front. The route took in the breath-taking Box Hill and travelled through Aldershot and even down the runway at RAF Odiham.
Scott Rowell (Mouldshop Manager) and Nick Wright (Project Engineer) have raised £652 so far! This is a huge achievement for a very worthy cause, so well done to them both!
The TCB-Arrow team are excited that our new building extension has been completed! It is 5,000 sq.ft. and over 8m to eaves, making it a huge project which has been progressing from the beginning of the year.
With just the steel framework (below), we could start seeing the potential of the new space, and now that it is finished the extension is even more impressive than we could have hoped!
When most people think about the silicone items in their home, kitchen utensils such as cake cases, spatulas and non-stick products usually come to mind. However, there are a range of unusual and unexpected items in your house that are enhanced by including silicone, constantly improving our way of life. Here are a couple of ways silicone makes its way into your household:
It’s literally surrounding you. Silicone is used in building and construction, able to bond materials such as concrete, glass, granite, steel and plastics, enabling them to work better and last longer. These silicone sealants can absorb pressure and movement within engineering, allowing for more innovative architectural designs. It also helps protect materials and joints from moisture, heat, corrosion, sunlight, ultraviolet radiation, pollution and other chemicals.You’re looking at or holding silicon right now. Silicone plays a huge part within the electronics industry. Silicon is a semi-conductor, meaning that it can conduct electricity only in certain conditions and acts as an insulator under others. These characteristics make it an ideal material for making transistors that amplify electrical signals. Coatings for electrical products, such as keypads, keyboards and copier rollers, as well as the hard coatings for computers, facsimile machines, telephones and home entertainment equipment are all made from silicone.
