Any polymer or resin with low thermal conductivity which melts when its surface is heated and forms a heat-resistant layer of charred material. These materials cover the cones of projectiles and space vehicles and protect them from high temperatures in outer space.
An abrasive; materials such as emery, sand, powder glass, that are used for grinding.
Superficial damage to the skin. Deeper abrasion leads to formation of scar tissue.
