Salwico Offers Literature
On Sal-Glas Protective
Primerless Marine Coatings
Sal-Glas protective coatings are now available from Salwico Glass- flake, Inc., Hoboken, N.J., for use wherever corrosion, abrasion, and chemical resistance are required.
Needing no primer, Sal-Glas can be applied by brush, trowel, or airless spray rig on most metal, concrete, fiberglass, and wood surfaces, including the internals and externals of pumps, piping and valves. Technical service and application equipment are avail- able.
Salwico literature describes
Sal-Glas as consisting of 100 per- cent solid polyester or vinyl res- ins with inert glass flakes. Two coats yield a 30 to 40 mil. seam- less monolithic lining with over 150 layers of micron-thick glass flakes. Designed for maximum protection in marine environ- ments, Sal-Glas linings have wide use in other marine industries and applications, including power, chemicals, waste water, and sew- age treatment, desalination, fer- tilizers, metal refining and finish- ing, pulp and paper, steel, tex- tiles, food and beverages, and transportation.
