Does Recycling Plastic Actually Help? That depends…

We are proud to do our part to help the environment. We have always manufactured our (black) Aviator #LaptopStand using Post Industrial Recycled Plastic versus recycled consumer plastic waste. There are numerous advantages of using #PostIndustrialRecycledPlastic

All of these advantages boil down to common sense and realizing that many “Go Green” initiatives have been a Lie – perpetuated by the players that profit from it – Including the politicians buying votes with it – to industry players taking advantage of an un-informed, well meaning society.

What is Post Industrial Recycled Plastic? Because of the nature of molding hot molten plastic into the products that we depend on – All #PlasticInjectionMolding manufacturing processes produce quite a bit of leftover small plastic chips, which basically can be swept off the manufacturer’s floor, re-ground into #nurdles and used again to mold something else. #ZeroTransportationWaste

Below are a few reasons it’s smarter to use this type of #recycledplastic over consumer waste.

#1 The lies that “some” Environmentalists Spread (who do you trust?)

Where does all of that consumer plastic waste go? We used to ship it to China as part of a trade agreement (just like we force Mexico to manufacture our lead vehicle batteries) – China was forced to take it. However – they can’t use it either… #GreatPacificGarbagePatch

Corn Fuel #Ethanol – Boy oh Boy… the environmentalists really got duped on that one… #CornLobby WINNER – WINNER

#2 Consumer Recycled Plastic creates a bigger carbon footprint. Two large diesel trucks going to every household to pick up trash?

#3 Consumer waste recycled plastic is pretty much useless in the manufacturing process. Molding hot, molten plastic is a very complicated process known as Plastic Injection Molding. These processes require just the right chemicle composition, just the right purity of the plastic, and just the right temperatures and pressures. With all of the varieties of unclean, dirty plastic in the trash – you will never be able to manufacture a useful product. By sweeping up the left over chips, re-grinding them into useful plastic nurdles again, we can be assured of a clean, “chemically correct” plastic for our Aviator Laptop Stand.

This is an interesting report that exemplifies the positives and negatives of a potential new recycling / environmental disaster, as a result of the good intentions of environmentalists – or maybe just dupped again… #ElectricCarBatteries #ElectricVehicleBatteries

Overheating HOT Laptop

If you are a Windows 10 laptop user, then you have experienced higher heat in your laptop due to more CUP usage caused by the improvements (and flaws) in Windows 10. A quick Google search reveals how common this problem is. The #1 solution in every fix you will read involves creating a cooler environment around your laptop. Heat is the number one enemy of your laptop, degrading not only performance, but also the life of the various internal hardware componants.

Laptop Heat Removed by the Aviator Laptop Stand

Your laptop needs ventilation to cool itself. You should never use your laptop on anything other than a hard flat surface (no blankets, bedspreads or any material the blocks airflow.

You can improve airflow by using our Aviator Lapop Stand. We have purposely designed our stand to encourage the natural, upward rise of heat – which creates a chimney effect drawing heat back, up and way from your laptop.

Laptop Stand Assembly Instructions

Assembly – Position the Crosspiece over the Riser with the word “TOP” on the Crosspiece facing up. Slide the Crosspiece into the V Notches on the Risers. Use the outer two slots on the Crosspiece for wider laptops and the inner two slots for smaller laptops.
Place Your Stand On Any Flat & Stable Surface
Option 1 – Cantilevered Over The Edge
While in the “Cantilevered” placement the stand is secured and extended over the edge of the work surface by engaging the bottom rubber strips and the Edge Receiving Notch.
Option 2 – On Top
While in the “On Top” placement the rubber strips are not in contact with the work surface & the stand is free to glide around on the “Lateral Movement Contact Points”. These contact points are designed for easy re-positioning of the laptop on the work surface. They also provide enough resistance to prevent the stand from moving backwards while typing in the “On Top”position.
* Frequent changes between these two placements encourages active ergonomics.
* On very smooth surfaces (glass for example) too much force while typing could cause the stand to slide away on the work surface while in the “On Top” placement.
* Never leave your laptop unattended while in the cantilevered placement or while on an airplane, moving vehicle or when other persons / pets could bump the stand.
* Never extend the stand past the arrows on the “Edge Receiving Notch”. The stand is very stable when the arrows are directly over the front edge of the work surface.
Moving the laptop while on the stand: Grasp the front of the stand from the bottom with the forefingers in the “edge receiving notch”, while putting pressure on the top, front area of the laptop with the thumbs.
Storage: The parts are designed to interlock & slip into the side pocket of a laptop carrying case. While holding the risers together evenly, slide the crosspiece dovetails into the matching slots on the risers. Once assembled for storage, the snug fit of a laptop case pocket holds everything together securely – no extra carrying case or straps needed.
Proper use of the AVIATOR™ Laptop Stand for your health and safety:
