Car battery extinguishing

Extinguishing, or cooling, an electric car (EV) fire

How to cool down and limit the radius (spread) of an EV on fire? To suppress an EV on fire on a road, or onboard a car carrying ferry?

The facts are :

  • It’s extremely hot near a burning car,
  • there’s a lot of (lethal) smoke emitted from a battery (and car) fire.

Thus, it is difficult to approach a burning EV.

… to, again, try to sell me that digital box, which is for free,

Värikäs ilta

Vuoden värit 2017

Deko lehden mainostamalla illalla 2017.02.01 Tikkurilan koulutusväki esitteli vuoden värit  maaliyhtiön koulutustiloissa. Kolmen henkilön viiden värikombinaation ennustukset vuoden väreille nostettiin esille. Heidän samat valinnat on esillä uunituoreessa Color Now lehdessä ja tilaisuudessa annettiin myös hieman valoa lehtijuttujen taustatyöstä.

Color Now – lehdessä näitä vuoden (2017) väri-kombinaatiot esitävät suunnittelija Teemu Muurmäki, sisustussuunnittelija Susanna Vento ja Tikkurilan designpäällikkö Marika Raike. Punainen lanka on miten heidän valitsemansa värit sopivat sävymaailmassa yhteen. Lehdessä ei vain esitetä vuoden (2017) väri-kombinaatiot, mutta myös vuoden väri – Angora (H466).

Tikkurilan värisuunnittelija Irina Hanhisalo piti hyvin mielenkiintoisan esitelmän jossa värimaailma avautui eri tavoilla riippuen valon tyypistä ja voimakkuudesta, sekä värien ja varsinkin sävyjen eri yhdistelmien mahdollisuudet. Paljon vinkkejä omalle sisutus-kohteelle – mitä kannattaa pitää mielessä värien valinnassa.

Tietokoneen näyttö ei todennäköisesti anna oikeudenmukaista toistoa värille. Onneksi minulla on lehti.

Seinämaalauksen ja kattorajan rajoite-oppitunnin lopuksi meidän noin 20 päinen ryhmä sai luvan kokeila edellä mainittujen värien eri kombinaatioita omalle levylle.

A colorful evening

The proposed to be, the colors of the year (2017), were presented by the training team of the Tikkurila paint making firm, at their training center next to the factory in Tikkurila village. 5 different color combinations by 3 persons were presented. These same combinations are present in the fresh Color Now magazine. Also, some insight was gives as to the background work of the main interior stories.

These color combinations are presented by designer Teemu Muurmäki, interior designer Susanna Vento and Tikkurila head of design Marika Raike. The interesting effect is how each of these 5 colors work together – especially tint-wise. The Color Now magazine presents, in addition to mentioned 3 combinations, also the color of the year (2017) – Angora (H466).
