COATINGSPRO NOVEMBER 2015 69 New & Noteworthy Send information and photos (transparencies, prints, or high-res JPG digital files at 300dpi) to Editor, CoatingsPro Magazine, 4501 Mission Bay Dr., Ste. 2G, San Diego, CA 92109 or by e-mail with attachments to Versatile Superwool Sealcoat HT Mastics Highlighted by Morgan Advanced Materials' Thermal Ceramics Business Te Termal Ceramics business of Morgan Advanced Materials has developed a versatile fber, Superwool Sealcoat HT, which is suitable for use in nearly a dozen furnace lining applications. From primary liner to emergency repairs, and backup insula- tion to patching, the mastics are a perfect complement to Morgan's range of fber and dense refractory materials. Specially formulated to provide the high level of atomization required for spray application, Superwool Sealcoat HT can be applied as part of the primary liner over fber or refractory surfaces, up to 2 inches (5.1 cm) thick on walls and up to ½-inch (1.3 cm) overhead. Installation requires no chemical cure-out, so lining can be fred immediately after installa- tion. Once dried, the material provides a strong hard surface, while still maintain- ing resiliency. Superwool Sealcoat HT can also be used in joint sealing, gasketing, and as a hot-face veneer coating to improve a lining's thermal efciency, demonstrating the numerous other applications for this multipur- pose material.

Or you can simply get it right the frst time. We all know the hassles of getting measurements right and the frustration of measurement mistakes. Designed by a professional builder, eTape16 solves all those problems in one tough, compact tool. Like a tradi- tional tape measure, eTape16's metal blade is available in U.S., metric, or U.S. and metric markings, but that's where the resemblance ends. eTape16's large, easy-to-read digital readout is accurate to 1/16 inch (1 mm). A simple push of a button allows one to read the measure- ment easily in inches, feet, fractions, and decimals, and it converts to metric, too. Another feature is inside/outside measurement; with the simple touch of a button, it toggles between outside measurement of the blade length alone and inside measurement, which automat- ically adds the 3-inch (7.6 cm) width of the tape measure case to the readout. Te tape is built to last, with a tough polycarbonate case and rubber bumper to protect the readout. Te CR2032 coin battery can last up to 64 hours of contin- uous use, and replacements are widely available and easy to install without tools. To prolong battery life, eTape16 shuts down automatically after fve minutes of non-use.

Apollo Safety ofers the follow- ing battery brands: Banana Boat, BugBand, Duracell, Energizer, Zenaro LED, Duracell Portable, Exell, Maxell, and Xeno Energy. Tese are available in various sizes including AA, AAA, 9 volt, C, and D. "We have customers who invest a fair amount of money in their carbon monoxide and other gas detection products but often don't keep a supply of batteries on hand to ensure those devices — detection systems and handheld devices — are working at all times," said John Carvalho, founder and president of Apollo Safety, Inc. "We began ofering batteries so that our customers could stock up rather than waiting for the batteries to run out and then, ultimately, heading down to the local pharmacy or grocery store and paying more." Carvalho noted that many people are hesitant to buy more than a pack or two of batteries at a time for fear the batteries will lose their power if not used by a certain time. "Batteries, just like a gallon of milk or any number of food products, come with expiration dates," said Carvalho. "As long as you store the batteries correctly, they should last as long as the expiration date says."

It features: • Single-side determination of slab thickness • Detection and localization of voids, pipes, delaminations, and honey- combing • Advanced echo tracking to help identify the main echo • Area scan for slab thickness unifor- mity testing in grid patterns • Measure variations in tunnel lining thicknesses according to RI-ZFP-TU
