PRC Reports On Navy Use Of PRORECO III Deck System
— Brochure Available Products Research and Chemical Corp. (PRC) of Glendale, Calif., recently released data confirming the extensive use by the U.S. Navy of the firm's PRORECO5 III weather deck system.
PRC reports that the PRORECO III system is now utilized on more than 100 U.S. Navy ships of all types including the newest guided missile cruisers, the famous Battleship New Jersey and aircraft carriers. In addition, for years PRORECO III has been used aboard hundreds of commercial vessels of all types worldwide.
The system has a 15 year service history of providing deck maintenance cost savings on all types of high wear deck surfaces including aircraft carrier flight decks, helicopter landing platforms on military ships and on offshore drilling rigs, cruise ships, cable laying ships, icebreakers, fishing vessels and oceangoing vessels of all types.
"PRC coatings protect your decks because they protect themselves" is the attention-getting head over the first of four sections in an eight-page color brochure from Products Research & Chemical Corporation. This heading leads into a discussion of PRC PRORECO deck coating systems designed to resist the heaviest abrasion, impact, vibration, or movement.
The company says that once durable PRC coatings are applied, surface touch-up and renewal is all that is needed, virtually eliminating maintenance costs for 10 years or more.
The second section in the publication explores the advantages of PRC PRORECO Marine Rubber Caulk™ sealants as truly all-purpose caulk; and the third section points up the fact that PRC technology and its broad base of protective products can solve unique problems in the marine, aerospace, railroad, telecommunications, automotive and construction industries.
The attractive brochure features .a breaking ocean wave on the cover as a reminder of the powerful forces of nature coatings and sealants must protect against. Color illustrations and photos are used throughout, and a partial listing of some of the PRC products available, with a description of each, is given on the back cover.
