Plastic That Saves Lives
The profession that some of us dream of in childhood, the biggest admiration of some of us, but there is a community of heroes that we all admire: Firefighters. They are heroes who disregard their own lives for us, jump bravely into the fires, fight fiercely for our forests and our people, even at the expense of their lives. Can we pay their dues, probably not. Most of the time we don't even think about it before they experience a disaster. However, they do not aim to be appreciated, and this courage does not have any monetary value anyway! However, let's try to explain these heroes and their equipment as much as we can.
Turning into a professional organization, at least in the Ottoman Empire, the fire brigade, which found 1720, was actually always a great need. Again, if we consider the Ottoman Empire, the abundance of wooden houses and shops was a great danger to the life of the city. Because a small spark was enough to burn half of the city to ashes. Firefighters, who were in disarray and positioned near the water with buckets in their hands, were responding to fires without being affiliated with any organization (for a fee!). It is even said that the firefighters, also called the firefighters, set fires themselves and put out these fires in return for a fee! It doesn't sound good yes; Fortunately, these situations disappeared when the fire brigade became a professional organization. Over time, fire brigades became more professional with the development of technology, and the development of plastics technologies in the 20th century had a truly breaking effect.
Fireproof plastics are a special type of plastic used in many areas of industrial technology and aiming to protect firefighters from the effects of flames during a fire. These plastics are produced in such a way that they will not burn even at high temperatures and are usually made of polycarbonate, phenolic or phenol formaldehyde polymers. These plastics have high strength even at high temperatures and are used to protect them from the effects of flames during a fire.
Non-combustible plastics used in firefighting suits cover a large part of the face and body of firefighters during a fire. They are produced from heat and flame resistant fibers and their blends by forming a multi-layered fabric structure. Firefighter's clothing, which consists of three layers, usually the outer layer, moisture barrier and thermal lining, can therefore move freely without hindering their movements while protecting the firefighters from the flames and heat of the fire. In addition, non-combustible plastics also protect the respiratory tract of firefighters and protect them from dust and fumes. In this way, the firefighter does not have any difficulty in breathing during the fire and can move more comfortably during his duty.
We owe a lot to the firefighters, the heroes of the fire department. Fortunately, we know that they are at least somewhat safe thanks to plastic. We owe them a lot, they are plastic.
