Information for Masonry Contractors

MSA's Aptura LT30 Self-Retracting Lanyard (SRL) has many new, versatile features. The Aptura LT30 has a field-replaceable lifeline option. Should the webbing become damaged, this option allows a user to replace the web lifeline in the field, without sending anything back to the manufacturer. With a lightweight design starting at 7.5 pounds, it's the lightest 30' SRL on the market. A 400-pound working capacity is a standard feature. And annual factory recertification is not required due to high-quality design. This not only reduces the cost of ownership, but it also eliminates down time. For more information, visit the MSA web site at www.MSAnet.com.

Chemprobe Coatings Systems, L.P.

Information for Masonry Contractors

Series 626 Dur A Pell GS (Graffiti Shield) is a new coating designed to shield against graffiti. Because Series 626 is a silicone rubber-based barrier, acrylic latex paints, enamel spray paints and markers will not permanently stick to the surface of structures treated with this coating. If a structure is tagged with graffiti, it can easily be removed with Chemprobe's Series 680 Mark Away citrus cleaner. Additionally, because the coating is non-sacrificial, structures can be tagged multiple times and the graffiti can still be removed. For more information, call (800) 670-6776 or visit www.chemprobe.com.
