[ELITE DAILY] There Is A Thin, Sprayable Rubber Coating That Can Make Anything Unbreakable

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

 

 

 

 

QuoteA product called Line-X may just blow your mind.

 

In a promotional video for the pressurized rubber spray, contestants dropped fragile objects sprayed with Line-X off a roof to prove its efficacy.

A cinder block and an egg are among the objects to bounce off the ground, completely unharmed. The rubber renders them unbreakable.

Pretty interesting stuff, although I'm a bit sceptical about the cup test....

We've been using Line-X on our truck beds for over 5 years now... pretty sure it was around well before that as well.

 

Sorry, but first off this is nothing new. Second, its not really tech news.

Sounds too good to be true, so I am skeptical.

The energy has to go somewhere, and such a thin coat just seems far too small for me to actually absorb the impact. I wouldn't be surprised if the egg, block and all the other stuff they tested broke on the inside but looked like they were undamaged on the outside.

 

Might work for buildings but yeah, I am skeptical.

but that is the point, it ok it gets damaged on the inside it the structure stays intact.

Yeah doesn't look legit to me.

 

As Lawlz has already said, the object would be shattered on the inside, this rubbery stuff just holding it together, making the object broken and useless. 5 times stronger than steel? Pfft, I doubt it.

That sumo wrestler bit was clearly rigged. The rubber won't provide any strength, it's supposed to be flexible and stretchy. At the most, those cups would just spring back up after they get crushed. There's no way they could have held him up.

If I coat an HDD with this, will it make the HDD survive a 4-storey fall?

I think they should spray it on someone and test it on a bear like this dude. I bet this guy has already tried it on his suit though.

Regarding energy...

It seems that the coating causes an elastic collision instead of an inelastic collision. At the molecular level, the coating could somehow convert most of the kinetic energy into heat at the point of impact.

 

I'm not an materials scientist, but a studying for mechanical engineering. That is honestly the best way I could think of it working.

Seriously why do people use words like "unbreakable"?

What about those giant car shredders or the HDD crushing machines..

It the context of the video's it is because they are talking about collisions. The same concepts and ideas don't work with punctures, which is what you are talking about.

yeah but this is still useless in alot of ways, name one use this could have that would be viable.?

Earthquake protection. Protecting utilities from terrorist bomb blasts, etc.

 

I'd like to see how much stronger a chain link fence would be with this stuff sprayed on it.

 

 

Ooh. Tornado proofing? THAT would be interesting to see. Your whole house gets picked up and thrown, but stays intact....except for all the shit inside of it lol.

As an American I'm surprised that people on other countries haven't heard of LineX, it's huge here.

Yeah. I've seen hunting vehicles coated with it so you never have to worry about scratches and stuff from driving through the woods. Awesome stuff.

 

Always thought Rhino Liner was better though.
