How do I insert an image here?
So, the styrofoam:
Well, better call it on generic name: polystyrol.
I got polystyrol chips from packageing material before it was dumped in the garbage.
And I got some seawater. I tried to coat the chips with seawater by immersing them
in a cup. I drained the cup and put it in the microwave oven with the chips in it.
The polystyrol chips did not melt together. I tried increasing the boiling point of the
salt solution by saturating the salt solution with table salt. The chips did not melt.
There might be pressure to increase the boiling temperature of the salt solution to the
melting point of the polystyrol. It would be like a pressure cooker.
I got polystyrol chips for free, and salt water for free. I did have a microwave ove.
So no special equipment was necessary.
I find this interesting. I feel it is more meaningful than watching TV, or playing
video games. (video games can be still better than TV).
I am going to read the patent, and other things, and I will probably figure this out.
I will write about it here.
Yes, porous concrete and foamed concrete is a great idea. Can anyone make it?
