Cargo Handling

Equipment — Marathon (continued from page 37) steering and traveling simultane- ously. It is a highly versatile and maneuverable machine, primar- ily due to the unique LeTourneau dc electric wheel system which provides power directly to each wheel.

The company's 2582-CH LeTro

Porter, also a container handler with diesel-electric drive, is rated to lift and carry container units weighing up to 67,200 pounds.

Models of the 2582-CH are avail- able for handling 20 to 40-foot containers.

Marathon LeTourneau's L-800, a 45,000-pound lift-capacity front- end loader, is used to load rail- cars with bulk cargoes such as coal, ore and wood chips. The diesel-electric loader is well suited for handling such bulk cargoes at port facilities because of its ma- neuverability and versatility.

Henkel's exclusive Versamid 280-B-75

Polyamide Adduct, combined with our Genamid" 2000 Amidoamine

Resin and an epoxy resin, are the basis for the tough coating systems de- fined in Navy specification MIL-P- 24441. (SHIPS)

These marine and industrial coat- ings are inherently corrosion resistant.

They outperform even traditional epoxy/polyamide systems formu- lated with costly rust inhibitive pig- ments. Even through 4000 hour salt- fog and two-year Florida tidewater testing.

The Versamid 280 System also is ideal in situations where you can't get the substrate as clean as you would like. That's because of its excellent substrate wetting and moisture dis- placement characteristics.

What's more, it is a low viscosity resin and provides the solvent savings of higher solids. And it offers improved cure at low temperatures.

Versamid 280's patented technol- ogy makes it the industry standard.

Years of use on Navy ships prove it can handle the toughest marine and in- dustrial applications.

So when you need to show your col- ors in long-lasting marine and indus- trial maintenance formulations, Hen- kel's Versamid 280 can help. For more information about this unusual resin system, write: Resins Division, Henkel
