COATINGSPRO MAY 2016 71 Award-Winning DataMaster Now Available as an iOS App for Mobile Devices Wagner Meters is proud to announce the DataMaster app for contractors, fooring installers, and others who utilize relative humidity (RH) testing, specif- cally the Rapid RH 4.0 EX, to assess the moisture condition of concrete foor slabs. A lready recognized by industry leaders for innovation in the digital reporting of RH data, the original DataMaster was awarded Most Innovative Products Industry Choice at the World of Concrete 2013 when frst introduced three years ago. Now it's even better as the all-new DataMaster app. Wagner Meters has transformed the DataMaster from wireless hardware to an iOS application that provides an intuitive and easy-to-use interface for iPhones and iPads. Now you' ll enjoy wireless, seamless fow of digital data from any Wagner Meters' Rapid RH sensor to your mobile device.

MAPEI has been heavily engaged and very successful in below- grade waterproofng markets elsewhere around the world for some time, to say nothing of the company's long history of providing waterproofng solutions in many other complimentary market segments. One of the below-grade waterproofng systems introduced was Mapeproof, a sodium bentonite geotextile waterproofng membrane. Mapeproof is constructed using a layer of woven and nonwoven, puncture- and tear-resistant polypropylene fabrics. Encased within these fabrics is high-swelling, self-sealing sodium bentonite. Mapeproof is ofered in a standard grade (Mapeproof HW) and an alternate grade designed specifcally for sites where contaminated or salt groundwater is present (Mapeproof SW). Te other below-grade waterproof- ing system introduced was Mapethene, a self-adhering, rubberized-asphalt sheet waterproofng membrane. Mapethene is constructed of a 4-mil-thick (101.6 microns), impact-re- sistant, cross-laminated, high density polyethylene (HPDE) flm laminated onto a proprietary 56-mil-thick (1,422.4 microns) rubberized-asphalt compound. Mapethene is ofered in both high temperature (Mapethene HT) and low temperature (Mapethene LT) variants. For more information, contact: MAPEI, (800) 426-2734, Reader Inquiry #3604 Paul N. Gardner Company Introducing the New USB Microscope Te unique optical design combines the advantages of a USB-microscope digital camera to the precision optics of a microscope illuminated with LED lights. With the 20–200 times magni- fcation, you can determine the fne structure of surfaces. Tis compact digital microscope is ideal for analyzing coating failures, imperfections, pretreatment quality, etc. Te micro- scope can be used in direct contact to the surface or at larger distances. Te eight integrated white light LEDs are adjustable in strength, guaranteeing a clear view without causing refec- tions. Special software for editing and making videos comes with this USB microscope. With this software, you can determine the length, width, height, and angle to the radius of the objects. Te USB microscope will also be supplied with a magnetic microscope holder, which gives the microscope a steady and straight position. It also enables the microscope to be used in a vertical position on Fe material, due to its three very strong magnets. For more information, contact: Paul N. Gardner Company, Inc., Reader Inquiry #3605 Cortec Releases New Brochure Addressing the Highly Corrosive Desalination Industry Cortec has published a new brochure for those wonder- ing how to combat the highly corro- sive nature of the desalina- tion industry. "VpCI Technology for Desalination Industry" not only acknowledges the inherent risks for corrosion in the extremely high chloride environ- ments of desalination plants — it also proposes ways to protect these plants from the safety risks, process interruption, or plant shutdown that could result from corrosion. As a highly corrosive industry, desalination needs the most efcient Nano VpCI solutions available. Te brochure explains that Cortec VpCIs can be added to systems at multiple points for versatile 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
