MMFG Announces Major

Changes For Duradek

Fiberglass Grating

Morrison Molded Fiber Glass

Company (MMFG) of Bristol, Va., recently announced that major changes in Duradek® fiberglass grating have recently been made to improve and upgrade the product and make it more readily available to the customer.

Over one million dollars' worth of the new product is now in stock and can be shipped within 48 hours to a customer anywhere in the country.

Duradek is manufactured by the

AFC Division of MMFG located in

Chatfield, Minn. The changes to

Duradek are described below.

A surfacing veil is standard on all

ARC gratings (including polyester grating). This enhances both corro- sion and UV resistance.

All Duradek gratings (including vinyl ester) are fire-retardant. This means they meet all the require- ments of Class 1 on ASTM E-84 and the self-extinguishing requirements of ASTM D-635.

All Duradek gratings will have a

Only specialists can build fou r floating drydocks within one year... ... 89 in a century. Floating docks have been on the pro- gramme of MAN GHH since 1878. Between April 1982 and

May 1983 we designed, built and supplied a 20,000-t and a 30,000-t dock for the U.S.A. as well as a 22,000-t and a 10,000-t dock for Saudi

Arabia. From June 1982 until

September 1983, two GHH floating docks were commis- sioned by our specialists at their final destination in the

U.S.A., another two in Saudi

Arabia, one in Indonesia, and one in Singapore.

Our dock construction yard is also fully equipped for build- ing floating cranes, such as the three 200-t units deliver- ed to Saudi Arabia in 1983.

For further information we shall be pleased to send you our brochures.

UV inhibitor added to the resin. UV coatings remain as an option to be used only when UV inhibitors are not considered adequate for the ap- plication. UV coating is still the best long-term solution to UV exposure.

Now the construction of Duradek more closely parallels the construc- tion of Extren fiberglass pultruded structural shapes.

All Duradek gratings have a new cross-rod spacing of 6 inches center of bearing bar to center of bearing bar. This makes the product more acceptable and gives a higher yield when complex field cutting is re- quired. Cross-rod spacing (12-inch) is also available with a reduction in price.
