To provide further efficiency, the three-component, organic, zinc-rich epoxy primer elimi- nates the need for sweat-in time. In addition, its packaging allows applica- tors to mix components directly in the Part A container for faster and more accurate mixing. Designed for use over properly prepared blasted steel, the coating is suitable for a wide range of shop and field applications, including bridge structures, stadiums, steel fabrication shops, piping, barges and ships, drilling rigs, and refineries.

Wagner Meters Partners on Software Wagner Meters' concrete flooring division and Sitefotos, a software company, have announced a partner- ship that enables integration of the Sitefotos photo documentation app with Wagner's Rapid RH Bluetooth Smart Reader. Wagner Meters is the first company in the flooring industry to use a Bluetooth- enabled device to allow users to take compliant relative humidity (RH) readings. is partnership allows contrac- tors and other app users to read Rapid RH data via Bluetooth and automati- cally upload the readings to the user's account in the cloud. e moisture readings, along with any photos, are tagged to the location and project. ey are then time stamped and stored on the cloud for easy and quick retrieval by the project personnel. For more infor- mation, contact: Wagner Meters, (844) 847-3792, Epoxy Linings for Municipal Wastewater Market Sauereisen added the SewerGard 210XHB to its epoxy lining systems for municipal wastewater markets. A moisture-tolerant, fast-setting, 100 percent solids epoxy polymer, it provides a barrier for concrete, masonry, brick, and steel substrates. Applications range from manholes and lift stations to tankage, struc- tural steel, clarifiers, and secondary containment at treatment plants. e system features a lining with coverage of up to 300 mils (7,620.0 microns) in one coat, eliminating the need for second-coat applications. e coating can be applied to saturated-surface-dry substrates and resists hydrogen sulfide (H 2 S), sulfuric acid (H 2 SO 4 ), microbi- ologically influenced corrosion, and wastewater treatment chemicals. It contains no volatile organic compounds and dries to the touch in 2 hours at 70 °F (21.1 °C). For more information, contact: Sauereisen, (412) 963-0303, Premium Antifouling Coatings Released Hempel launched two new premium antifouling coatings, Globic 9500M and Globic 9500S. e coatings offer customers a potential 2.5 percent reduction in speed loss, leading to significant fuel savings and lower CO 2 emissions. is coating series builds on the company's Globic technology to provide antifouling performance for new buildings and dry dockings. Using its patented Nano acrylate technology, the range provides a fine polishing control mechanism to bring the integral biocides to the surface at a stable rate, ensuring a clean hull. By combining the strongest binder and biocide package at different trading speeds, Globic 9500M and Globic 9500S outperform other self-polishing coatings (SPC), according to the company, particularly when slow steaming. For more informa- tion, contact: Hempel, +45 4588 5518, LED Flood-Curing System for Thermally Sensitive Materials Dymax Corp. unveiled the BlueWave MX-250, the latest in its line of light-emit- ting diode (LED) flood-curing systems that offers unique curing flexibility and expansion capabilities in a smaller unit. e system is ideal for curing thermally sensitive materials. Designed with a user-friendly touchscreen interface, it offers higher, more consistent curing intensities. It can cover an active 50 mm by 50 mm (2.0 in. x 2.0 in.) curing
