[Decline of the Rising Sun]

Date: unknown
Creator: Artzybasheff, Boris, 1899-1965.
Description: Black and white cartoon. A figure made of Wickwire Spencer rope uses a part of itself to hang a caricature of a distressed Hideki Tojo, who appears to be partially immersed in the sea. Behind Tojo's head are rays resembling those of a Japanese Rising Sun symbol. A volcano or mountain can be seen in the distant background.

Description: Our research focuses on re-using a waste a material, cross-linked polyethylene abbreviated XLPE, which is a widely used coating for wires. XLPE is strong and has excellent thermal properties due to its chemical structure - what leads to the significance of recycling this valuable polymer. Properties of XLPE include good resistance to heat, resistance to chemical corrosion, and high impact strength. A wire is usually composed of a metal core conductor and polymeric coating layers. One creates a new coating, including little pieces of recycled XLPE in the lower layer adjacent to the wire, and virgin XLPE only in the upper layer. Industries are often wasting materials which might be useful. Mostly, some returned or excess products could be recycled to create a new type of product or enable the original use. This method helps cleaning the waste, lowers the costs, and enhances the income of the manufacturing company. With the changing of the thickness of the outer layer, the roughness changes significantly. Moreover, different processing methods result in surfaces that look differently.
