- In another industrial spinoff, O. Z. Gedney Co.,Terryville, Conn., found the answer to a problem in a NASA Tech Brief describing research in adhesive bonding for the Space Shuttle. Gedney, which makes electrical fittings for industrial plants, was developing a new "fire stop," a device that prevents the spread of fire through holes where cables and pipes penetrate fire barriers in buildings. The company wanted to bond a metal disc on the fire stop to a layer of "instumescent" material, material that swells under heat and fills the gap caused by melted cable insulation, thus blocking passage of fire and smoke. At the company's request, NASA supplied a technical information package which identified the best adhesive and the proper bonding technique. The fire-stop fitting is now in production.
