Castle Point Rocketry is proud to have two new sponsors. And they are in exciting new areas of the project, to boot!
Academy Bus, located in Home Sweet Hoboken, has agreed to let us use some of their parking space. As the project continues to evolve and we work towards launch, we are still pursuing the purchase of a vehicle for storage and transportation. Buying it is easy. Finding the space for it? Not so much. Luckily, we have neighbors with space to spare!
We’re using Teflon on our rocket! (Kind of.) Though the rocket won’t be non-stick, a grease made from Teflon derivatives ensures that our fittings thread together nicely and stay fastened. We are happy to announce that Chemours, who owns the Teflon name, is sponsoring us with another of their specialties: Krytox. Krytox grease is capable of withstanding some of the harshest environments, including those experienced onboard our rocket. (High and low pressures and temperatures, caustic chemicals, and vibration.)
Thank you to our newest sponsors, The Chemours Company and Academy Bus Lines! Feel free to check out our full sponsors list here.
