TANAKA Develops First High-Entropy Alloy Powder Comprised Entirely of Precious Metals


Wazzup Pilipinas!?


With the establishment of five different precious metals alloy powder production methods


TANAKA Kikinzoku Kogyo K.K., a core company of the TANAKA Precious Metals Group, has developed a high-entropy alloy powder composed entirely of precious metals with a fine particle size of 10um or less, high crystallinity and excellent composition uniformity. This is the world's first high-entropy alloy powder composed entirely of five precious metals: platinum (Pt), palladium (Pd), iridium (Ir), ruthenium (Ru), and rhodium (Rh). TANAKA has established a mass production process and will provide samples in October.

TANAKA has established the five precious metal alloy powders and their production methods used in this product and obtained a basic patent in June 2023[1]. This product's precious metal alloy powder comprises only five elements that maintain the corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity and other excellent properties of precious metals. They are micro-order[2] alloy powders that are easy to use in industrial applications.

Unlike conventional nano-order precious metal high-entropy alloys, the new alloy is stable due to its large crystallite size, and it satisfies the inherent requirements of alloys, such as improved mechanical strength, corrosion resistance, and controlled thermal expansion. The new alloy powder is expected to improve the functions and properties of precious metal alloys, whose properties vary greatly depending on the composition ratio of the alloy.


 
The precious metal alloy of this product is in powder form, though it can also be utilized in paste form, which is often used in various circuits and sensors, in addition to modelling using a 3D printer and rod forming (forming rod-shaped material by solidifying powder). Furthermore, high-entropy alloys' high strength and high heat resistance properties of high-entropy alloys are expected to be utilized in catalysts and conductive films that require high durability, among other applications.

[1] Patent No. 7300565 related to high-entropy alloy powder was granted on June 29, 2023. The precious metal alloy powder in this product is defined as (1) precious metal alloy powder consisting of an alloy of five or more precious metal elements, (2) average particle size of 10ยตm or less, (3) crystallite size of 60nm or more, and (4) one peak observed in the range of diffraction angle 2ฮธ of 38 to 44° in the X-ray diffraction spectrum.

[2] Order: A term used in physics, engineering, and other fields to roughly express the magnitude of a number. It represents the number of digits or degrees of a unit.

About High-Entropy Alloys

High-entropy alloys are alloys containing five or more elements in equal amounts and are characterized by the absence of major elements that make up most of the alloy. They have been attracting attention as a new category of metallic materials in recent years. Research and development on high-entropy alloys is being conducted worldwide, as the properties of the metals and precious metals contained in these alloys can simultaneously produce properties such as high strength, high heat resistance and the possibility of creating new properties.

About TANAKA Precious Metals

Since its foundation in 1885, TANAKA Precious Metals has built a portfolio of products to support a diversified range of business uses focused on precious metals. TANAKA is a leader in Japan regarding the volumes of precious metals handled. For many years, TANAKA has manufactured and sold precious metal products for industry and provided precious metals in such forms as jewelry and assets. As precious metals specialists, all Group companies in Japan and worldwide collaborate on manufacturing, sales, and technology development to offer a full range of products and services. With 5,355 employees, the group's consolidated net sales for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023, was 680 billion yen.

Born in Manila: Instituto Cervantes organizes concert to pay tribute to Spanish singer-composer Luis Eduardo Aute


Wazzup Pilipinas!?



Instituto Cervantes de Manila, in collaboration with the Embassy of Spain in the Philippines, presents the concert “Born in Manila (A Tribute to Aute)”, on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the birth of the Manila-born singer-composer and painter Luis Eduardo Aute. This event will be held on Tuesday, November 7, at 7:00 PM in the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium at the RCBC Plaza in Makati.

The screening of “Con tu latido”, a video documentary produced in 2021 by Instituto Cervantes de Manila will open the event. Filmed in distinct locations in Intramuros, this video features Filipino singers, such as Bituin Escalante and Mark Anthony Carpio, performing some of the songs of Luis Eduardo Aute. This will be followed by live performances of some of the singers including Sheila Ferrer and Toma Cayabyab, who also participated in the recording of “Con tu latido”. Toma, son of National artist Ryan Cayabyab, has arranged the new renderings and versions of Autes’s songs, both those recorded in the documentary and those that will be part of the repertoire to be performed live at the RCBC.

The concert will also include the special participation of Spanish singer Rosa Leรณn, who will be arriving from Spain for this occasion. The early years of her career as a singer, in the 70’s, was closely linked to Aute, as she had popularized some of his greatest songs, such as “Las cuatro y diez” and “Al alba”.

Luis Eduardo Aute was born in Manila on September 1943 during the Japanese occupation. His father worked at the Tabacalera. His grandmother, born in Valencia, was brought to the Philippines during the Spanish era at the age of three. They had a house along Roxas Boulevard (which back then was Dewey Boulevard) that also served as the headquarters of the Japanese troops and later on the Americans. He studied at De La Salle, but the family moved to Spain in 1954 where, years later, Aute would become one of the icons of Spanish music in the second half of the 20th century.

Free entrance on a first come, first served basis.

Metro Pacific Tollways South (MPT South), a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), is gearing up for the expected surge in motorists during the 2023 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections and the observance of All Saints and All Souls' Days.

The toll road operator is fully prepared to assist Undas travelers through reactivation of its "Safe Trip Mo, Sagot Ko" (SMSK) motorist assistance program during the following period: 6 AM of October 27, 2023, to 6 AM of October 29, 2023; 6 AM of October 31, 2023, to 6 AM of November 2, 2023; and 6 AM of November 4, 2023, to 6 AM of November 6, 2023.

Are you looking for a seven-seater SUV, one with a four-wheel drive for winter conditions, or a fuel-efficient option for long commutes?

 
2. Set a Budget:

Determine how much you're willing to spend on a used SUV. Your budget should include the purchase price, taxes, insurance, ongoing maintenance, and potential repairs. Setting a clear budget helps narrow down your options and prevents you from overspending.

Calgary offers a wide variety of used SUVs from different manufacturers. Research makes and models that are known for their reliability and family-friendly features. Look for reviews and reliability ratings to help you make an informed decision.

Newer models may include advanced driver assistance systems like blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.

 
5. Fuel Efficiency:

Considering Calgary's varying gas prices, fuel efficiency is an essential factor. Look for SUVs with good gas mileage, especially if you plan on using the vehicle for daily commuting.

 
6. Vehicle History Report:

Always obtain a vehicle history report for any used SUV you want. This report will reveal crucial information about the vehicle's past, including accidents, title status, and maintenance records.

 
7. Insist on a Pre-Purchase Inspection:

Before finalizing the purchase, have the SUV inspected by a trusted mechanic. They can identify any underlying issues that might not be evident during a test drive. A thorough inspection can save you from unexpected repair costs down the road.

 
8. Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Options:

Consider purchasing a certified pre-owned SUV. CPO vehicles typically undergo a rigorous inspection and come with extended warranties, providing added peace of mind.

Perform a title check to verify that the used SUV has no outstanding liens or issues with its title. This step can prevent future legal complications.

 
13. Negotiate the Price:

Feel free to negotiate with the seller or dealership. Research the market value of the SUV you're interested in and be prepared to make a reasonable offer.

 
14. Consider Extended Warranties:

If the manufacturer's warranty no longer covers the used SUV, explore extended warranty options. This can provide additional coverage for unexpected repairs.

 
15. Read the Fine Print:

Before signing any contracts, carefully read and understand all terms and conditions, including the warranty and return policy.
16. Vehicle Ownership Costs:

Remember that the cost of owning an SUV extends beyond the purchase price. When budgeting for your family-friendly SUV, factor in ongoing expenses like insurance, fuel, maintenance, and registration fees.
Conclusion:

Whether navigating the city's streets or venturing into the scenic outdoors, your used SUV will be a dependable companion for all your family adventures.

Cleaning of fire-hit Post Office building begins


Wazzup Pilipinas!?


They helped put out the fire, and now they volunteered to clean it up to pave the way for the restoration of the historic Manila Central Post Office.

With the help of firefighters from Binondo Fire Volunteers, debris from the lobby was flushed out using a high water pressure fire hose, leaving the floor recognizable and free from dirt.

Plans of preserving the historic building are now being set in motion with the help of the Inter Agency Task Force for Cultural Heritage (IATF-CH) member agencies.

Moving forward, the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) has taken initial steps towards restoring the fire-hit Manila Central Post Office (MCPO) building.





A conservation architect has been tapped to identify the items or materials left by a fire that have historical value and facilitate its tagging, cataloging, and retrieval to serve as a reference in the actual restoration of the MCPO building.

PHLPost is also working on the shoring of the building. This is a process to temporarily support the structure, vessel, or trench with shores (a timber or metal props) to avoid danger of collapsing during repairs or alterations.

The Department of Tourism is now looking at developing the iconic building as part of a cultural circuit in the City of Manila.

Built in 1926, the Manila Central Post Office was declared an Important Cultural Property by the National Museum of the Philippines in 2018. This cultural property with exceptional cultural, artistic, and historical significance to the country, is eligible to receive government funding for its protection, conservation, and restoration.

This landmark agreement is a significant step towards preserving and showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Philippine cinema, highlighting the involved government agencies’ commitment to the development of the country's film and tourism industries.

Envisioned as a state-of-the-art facility, the soon-to-rise building will be a melting pot of cinematic gems, including a collection of Filipino films, memorabilia, and audiovisual preservation and restoration facilities.

"Our facilities will serve as a hub for film enthusiasts, a source of deep & rich knowledge for students, and a treasure trove of Philippine cinema for both our fellow citizens and visitors from all around the world,” Chairman Cruz added.

In a statement, the DOT said that the building is expected to become a key attraction within the historic walled city of Intramuros, offering visitors an immersive journey through the evolution of Philippine cinema.

The construction of the Philippine Film Heritage Building is part of the government's broader efforts to boost tourism and cultural appreciation in the country. It is expected to be completed in October 2024.

"I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to each and every one of our supporters who contributed in making our dream of establishing a permanent home for our Philippine Film Heritage a reality. Most especially to the Honorable Senator Robin Padilla, the main proponent of this monumental project. This feat will not be possible without your support.

We send our gratitude to you all,” Chairman Cruz said in a statement.
