Paints and coatings


No-odor enamel

Beyond Multipurpose Enamel is a no- odor, zero VOC and HAP, industrial-grade coating that allows users to paint in confined, occupied spaces without the risks associated with solvent odors and flammability. Enamel can be used on metal, concrete, masonry, wood, drywall, and tile using brush, roller, or spray gun. Coating can be used indoors or outdoors and is available in standard colors and tint bases in satin or gloss finishes.

Zinc coating

Cold Galvanize 99% protective coating is available in a 13-oz aerosol can; contains 99% pure zinc; and provides superior, long-term protection against rust and corrosion on ferrous bar metal and previously galvanized surfaces. With galvanic action equivalent to that of hot-dip galvanizing, the coating bonds easily to metal and acts as a sacrificial layer — the zinc oxidizes instead of the metal.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
