new iron guard gs epoxy floor system Iron Guard GS is International Coatings' new iron reinforced troweled epoxy floor with the superior abrasion resistance of steel, designed for unusually severe wear and/or impact conditions not seeing a lot of corrosive chemicals. Its high abrasion and impact resistance will provide much longer life spans than concrete or conventionally filled polymer toppings in transfer stations, heavy equipment maintenance facilities, steel-wheeled traffic areas, loading docks, and any areas that see a lot of abuse. Iron Guard GS uses a proprietary blend of specially prepared steel aggregate that won't rust. It's a 100 percent solids, and with recycled material, it qualifies for LEED points. The product's a resin-rich system that does not require a primer or topcoat, which greatly reduces the downtime needed for application. It can withstand oils, grease, caustic cleaners, and moderate concentrations of inorganic acids.

Write in Reader Inquiry #303 nLb introduces 1,000 hP Convertible Water Jet Unit NLB's latest convertible units, the NLB 1005 Series, are the first in the water jet industry to combine the power of 1,000 hp (746 kW) with 4,000 psi-to-20,000 psi convertibility (275 bar to 1,400 bar) for really big jobs. These rugged units offer the same reliability, easy maintenance, and low operating cost as other NLB convertible units — 24 in all, the most in the industry — and use many of the same parts. The 1005 Series includes two models whose in-line fluid end can be easily converted with a simple kit to any of five operating pressures and flows, up to a maximum flow of 333 gpm (1,262 lpm). These diesel-powered units are built around NLB's slow-running quintuplex plunger pump, which is known for minimizing wear and maintenance. They feature internal gearing that eliminates the need for large pulleys or belts, reducing the overall footprint.
