Tim Fodor Group: Bamboo Composite Testing



Sitting around the fire pit, I remember I just received some bamboo composite samples from Tim Fodor over at SWB Global Solutions. And we decided to do a bit of comparative testing.


Tim Fodor Group: Composite Flame Tests



For our second set of tests, we are subjecting some softwoods(pine, cedar, redwood), hardwoods(ip, tiger wood, grapa), and composites(trex, fc, the new stuff) to a few flame tests.
First up, we poured gasoline on all of the pieces, and lit them on fire. After that, we poured over a cup of gasoline on the new composite and lit it.
Secondly, we put all of the woods under a blow torch and saw how long they took to burn.
Watch the entirety of this set and the other sets! They are quite fun!!!
ALSO, I DO NOT own the rights to the music used in this video. The first song is Four Tet - As Serious As Your Life, and the second song is Stomacher - Untitled/Dark Divider. They are very good! Help support artists and head over to iTunes if you would like to buy them!


Bamboo Compdeck Scratch Tests: Tim Fodor Group of Companies



For our first set of tests, we are subjecting some softwoods(pine, cedar, redwood), hardwoods(ip, grapa, tiger wood), and composites(trex, fc, the new stuff) to three different "scratch" tests.
First, we are going to use a little garden grater to try and dig some grooves into the woods.
Second, we are going to use a hatchet/tomahawk to try and slice through the woods.
Finally, we "hired" a ninja to try and break the boards.
Watch all of the tests, as well as the other sets! They are very fun!!!


Tim Fodor Group: Composite Gun Tests



For our fourth and final set of tests, we subjected all of our softwoods(pine, cedar, redwood), hardwoods(ip, grapa, tiger wood), and composites(trex, fc, the new stuff) to some pretty heavy gunfire.
Firstly, our Army "Ranger" brought out his Sig Sauer 556 ACOG 4x RDS combo scope with laser/flashlight front grip and tore into the wood that we had on hand.
Secondly, he brought out his Mossberg 590A shotgun and tore into them yet again.
Watch the whole set! Lots of fun with the guns!!
And yes, that is a paintball vest. And no, I didn't have another vest, lol.


Tim Fodor Group: Composite Material Driving Test



For our third set of tests, we ran over a variety of different softwoods and composites and compared them to the bamboo composite we got shipped from SWB.
I DO NOT own the music provided in this video. The track is by Four Tet, and the title is As Serious as Your Life.
