It boasts a 17-gallon (64.4 L) capacity and automatic filter cleaning with a high-ef- ficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter to help users move toward compli- ance with silica dust regulations. e vacuum's auto-filter-clean system activates every 15 seconds, and the HEPA filter captures 99.97 percent of particles at 0.3 microns (0.01 mils) and larger. e dust extractor features a 17.5-A motor, enabling extraction for heav y-duty applications. is includes concrete cutting and surface grinding with larger 7-inch (17.8 cm) and 9-inch (22.9 cm) grinders and up to 12-inch (30.5 cm) cut-off tools.

"e portfolio contains products that have become a staple among customers that require the utmost protection and battle the harshest of environments," said A lfredo Villalobos, global director for A xalta's oil and gas segment. "We are excited to launch these innovative technologies that will result in a world-class protec- tive coatings portfolio designed to keep customers competitive." A ll products in the portfolio are tested to demanding standards by independent, national, and international authorities. For more information, contact: A xalta, (855) 547-1461, Fast-Curing Coating Provides Extended Fire Protection Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings has introduced FIRETEX FX6002, an intumescent coating that is durable for up to 20 years in most environments. In addition to its fire protection capabilities, this durable coating is also fast curing — with hard dry and handling times that can last as little as an hour — and can be used without a topcoat. As a result, the product "can offer a broader range of benefits and options than ever before, whether you're an architect, a developer, or an applicator," said Bob Glendenning, global fire engineering manager. e technology allows for steelwork to be transported within hours and with vastly reduced damage on the paint job. Moreover, the coating reduces the required film thickness. For more information, contact: Sherwin-Williams, (800) 524-5979, Abrasion-Resistant Polyurethane Overcoat for Pipelines Chemline, Inc. is offering Chemline 2265 ARO, an abrasion-resistant overcoat with extra protection for its standard 2265 direct-to-metal polyurethane coating. Using propri- etary polymer technology, it provides a nearly impenetrable membrane as a sacrificial second layer designed to defend a primary pipeline coating from impact and rock damage during push/pull operations in horizontal directionally drilled installations, such as road and river crossings. ARO also maintains flexibility, allowing use on bends, fittings, and fabrication when severe handling or rough terrain persist. ARO is formulated without abrasive fillers, which can rapidly erode spray gun modules and clog proportion- ing unit filters. ARO bonds to Chemline 2265 and forms a resistant outer shell at more than 60 mils (1,524.0 microns) of thickness.

A previously cost-prohibitive technology, thermal imaging is becoming widely adopted by home and building profes- sionals. As such, Seek has pioneered the next generation of thermal imaging devices, sized and priced for every toolbox. ermal imaging cameras detect heat, otherwise invisible to the human eye, which can be indicative of serious and costly problems and ineffi- ciencies around a home or building. e technology allows professionals to identify leaks, electrical shorts, mechanical faults, and energy loss as a way of assessing a structure's health in a nondestructive manner.
