(IPC) is aimed at improving the early detection of structural issues or degradation on bridges. According to IPC, the company's robotic systems utilize geophysical non-destructive test (NDT) protocols to x-ray concrete and other infrastructures, making it possible to identif y early-stage deteri- oration and allow recommendation of repairs before deterioration spreads and compromises a structure's ability to carr y its design loads. Proper diagnosis allows improved planning and repair of early-stage deterioration, including the possible breakdow n of protective coatings. For more infor- mation, contact: IPC, (727) 372-2900, w w Façade Restoration Coatings Named Top New Product A n independent panel of judges from the education industr y selected the NeverFade façade restoration coatings from APV Engineered Coatings as a Platinum Award w inner in the annual New Product Award program from 1105 Media. T he NeverFade exterior coatings are a line of water-based, low VOC coatings that uniquely restore and protect building exteriors w ith long-term performance. T he products, which work w ith compatible APV primers, are formulated w ith Ky nar Aquatec — a tough poly vinylidene f luoride (PV DF) resin that resists thermal, chemical, and ultraviolet degradation. Incor porated into the NeverFade coating technolog y and coupled w ith additives and specialty grade inorganic pigments, Ky nar Aquatec is resistant to color fading, dirt pickup, staining, algae, mold, fungal growth, and erosion. For more information, contact: APV, (800) 772-3452, w w Sealant Protects Architectural Stone, Tile From Stains A rchitectural stone and tile must repel liquids and oil to maintain appearance and value. In response, the AsahiGuard sealant from AGC Chemicals provides an effective deterrent to liquid- and oil-based stains. AsahiGuard is effective for polished stones, porous stones, and ver y porous materials. T he product uses f luoropoly mers dispersed in water to repel liquids by forming a low-energ y surface coating on treated stone. Liquid beads when spilled on stone or tile treated w ith AsahiGuard sealants. T his beading action minimizes the amount of surface area that the spilled f luid contacts, neutralizes penetration, and enhances cleanability. T he product is applied by brush or roller, cures quick ly, and is odor-free. It is available in a range of custom formulations. For more infor- mation, contact: AGC, (800) 424 -7833, w w Patented Polyolefin Repair Method Milliken Infrastr ucture Solutions was awarded a U.S. patent for its method and apparatus to repair polyolefin pipes and str uctures. T his patent descr ibes a system and method for the repair of polyolefin pipes and str uctures used in the oil and gas industr y. Invented by James Souza and Law rence Cercone, the technolog y enables the repair of polyethylene and poly propylene pipes used in corrosive env ironments. T hese innovations also prov ide a method of repair for polyolefin-based str uctures, such as holding tanks and pressure vessels. T he system enables the direct bonding of compos- ite mater ials to polyolefin pipe, and this process allows the adhesion of a fiber-reinforced poly urethane or a fiber-reinforced epox y coating system to repair microcracks, dents, or gouges.
