Fire Paste

Canadian inventor Troy Hurtubise Known as the bear guy because of the Ursus bear suits he has invented. He has created a amazing new substance which he calls Fire Paste.

Troy Hurtubise says he doesnt feel the heat, even with a 2000 C blowtorch flame blazing at his head.

''When dry, the paste is non-toxic four times lighter than aluminum, more heat resistant than titanium, and costs only pennies to make''

It dissipates heat at an exponential rate, its beyond belief, and I have no idea why it does, all I know is that it does.

Heres a video of it in action.

www.exn.ca...

Two major markets for fire paste.

-I could coat the belly of the NASA space shuttle with fire paste for $25,000 (US), instead of the $60 million it costs for them to put tiles on it, Hurtubise said.

It can stand up to the heat of re-entry to the earths atmosphere, and then they can simply wash it off.

Fire insurance industry interested

The fire insurance industry is also interested, Hurtubise said, and has asked him to demonstrate.

It will save the insurance industry billions, Hurtubise said.

He adds that fire paste can handle such high temperatures, that had the steel skeleton holding up the World Trade Towers been sprayed with it, the buildings wouldnt have imploded after being hit by two airliners Sept. 11.


The stuff is even biodegradable


I have read up alot about this guy and hes quite amazing. Yes he is eccentric and some of his test his does are well insane. But I think most geniuses a rather insane in their own way. I also started a thread about a new type of armour he has invented to protect soldiers fighting overseas.

I hear that! I have had several colleagues go to work for USA (United Space Alliance, a sub-contractor for NASA that re-applies the heat shield tiles) in various capacities. The next generation launch vehicle needs not have the same 'issue' with tiles. Perhaps this material is a viable replacement.

If it truly disipates heat that efficiently, there must be a trick...

In heat transfer you have:

-Surface area
-Boundary conditions
-Initial conditions
-mass
-and Specific heat

The last factor is pretty much all you have to play with....
Which would suggest that is what is unique about this material.
Unless perhaps you are thinking out of the box??

I wonder how the fire paste holds up against Maurice Ward's starlite material (there's a thread about it on Military and Government projects)

Man, this guy is going to be the next Mr Branson. He has some very good Ideas, and I think this fire paste will take him far.

I want to see this guy coat his entire body with this stuff, hire 4 guys with blow torches and just nuke the hell out of him. Ooh, and dont forget to post the video on ATS.

Ok, I've watched the video, and am a fan of this guy...his bear suit testing was just insane in a good way.

But, if he's the guy that invented and made this fire paste, why doesn't he seem to have a clue what it's made of or how it works? Did he just take a bunch of stuff under his sink and mix it together or something? Seems kinda odd.

Well he claims that it took around 30 pours to get the mixture just right. However he also says that the main ingredient can be purchased for next to nothing.

Yeah i thought the British guy invented that years ago, the link refers to an episode of tomorrow's world. I remember watching that very episode and i have to tell you, it was fantastic to watch.

Diet Coke. One of the ingredients. This guy is so awesome, and his haircut makes him even cooler with that canadian tuxedo. But seriously, fire paste needs to be marketed, just imagine the potential it could have with cars, planes, buildings, etc.

damn right, this is an awsome find! why the hell havnt they put this in use yet? i guess the only reason might be their waiting to see whether it has any unforseen side-effects like asbestos
Anyway fully expect this stuff to be EVERYWHERE if its found safe

I like how someone in the starlite thread said that he called the inventor and found out that the silence was due to secrecy, and immediately after other people still talk about how weird it is that it has been "covered up."

Whatever this stuff is, it looks better than aerogel, and that's good because aerogel is expensive and hard to make.

First off, this guy's 'sideburns'...or lack there of are awesome.

Second, it's pretty wierd that this guy doesn't know why it works. If it really does come from 'household stuff' here are some ideas:

Lithium
Lithium Batteries
White Lithium Grease With Teflon
Lithium General Purpose Grease
Lithium stearate
Sodium magnesium silicate

Bromide
Cetyl palmitate
Domiphen bromide
Cetrimonium bromide

Diet Coke Ingredients
