70 MARCH 2016 COATINGSPROMAG.COM epoxy coating, which is UL Water Quality certifed to United States and Canadian National Science Foundation (NSF)/American National Standards Institute (ANSI) 61 and NSF/ANSI Standard 372. It is certifed for tanks of 50+ gallons (189.3 L) as well as for pipes 16+ inches (40.6 cm) in diame- ter. It can be applied with a brush and roller or airless spray equipment, with return to direct water contact in fve days. No specialized equipment or curing procedures are required.

By means of measur- ing the electrical impedance, the moisture content of concrete can easily be determined by just pressing the instrument against the concrete surface. Te electrical impedance is measured through generating a low frequency electric feld between eight electrodes at the bottom of the instrument. Depending on the moisture content, the measure- ments are made to a depth of several centimeters. Four scales allow fexible use of the instrument as an accurate measuring device or just as a detector to fnd moisture traces or leakage. Te meter measures low intensity alternat- ing current fowing through electric feld, and on that basis, calculates moisture of tested material. Concrete Moisture Meter L19200 does not detect concrete moisture through electric- ity conducting materials like metal coverings/linings, PE-rubber, or any wet surfaces.

Grace & Co., a global innovator in technologies for industrial and specialty coatings, is launching Syloid A matting agents for the architectural market to meet consumer demand for high-performance, low-gloss paints. Tis is the company's frst product designed specifcally for the archi- tectural coatings industry. Grace designed the Syloid A Series to provide paint formulators with more efcient matting agents that deliver improved performance in premium interior fat paints. Tese enhancements include exceptional stain resistance, a noticeably smoother fnish, improved hiding characteristics, and superior burnishing resistance. Te performance attributes of Syloid A have been verifed by Marschall Labs, an independent paint consulting and testing laboratory. "Grace continues to expand our exper- tise in silica technology to provide novel products that ofer superior value to the coatings market," said Jim Bowler, Coatings Global Marketing Manager, at Grace. "Te Syloid A Series will help customers diferentiate their products with enhanced performance." For more information, contact: W. R. Grace & Co., Reader Inquiry #3595 Measure Surfaces Faster With New Elcometer 130 SSP Soluble Salt Profiler Measuring soluble salts is now more accurate, easier, and faster than ever before thanks to the new Elcometer 130 SSP Soluble Salt Profler. Te Elcometer 130 SSP is a portable, hand-held gage, which accurately and reliably measures four Bresle equivalent readings in less than three minutes — more than four times faster than Bresle test methods. Key features include: • Bresle (ISO 8502-9) equivalent readings • Four times faster than Bresle Patches • Displays the peak salt concentration — not just the average reading • Pass/fail maps and 2D and 3D salt density profiles provide visual indication of salt contamination • Stores up to 3,500 sets of readings or transfer data via Bluetooth or USB to ElcoMaster for PC or mobile devices or your own inspection app for instant report generation • Rugged and reliable, ideal for use in the field or the laboratory For more information, contact: Elcometer, Reader Inquiry #3596 Hempel Launches Long-Awaited High-Grade Pure Epoxy Tank Coating Highly anticipated as a replacement to its world-renowned Hempadur 15400 tank coating, leading marine paints manufacturer Hempel announces the launch of Hempadur 15460.
