PROTECTING SHIPPER'S FREIGHT BY PROTECTING THE CONTAINER

A new process for use in the reparing of containers is described. This process utilizes a special resin which hardens with fiberglass reinforcements to cover the damaged parts of the container. This material repairs the damaged areas, and other areas in various stages of decomposition are similarly covered with the material to prevent any further corrosion. The inventors of this process believe that it will enable a container to have from 8 to 10 years of corrosion-free service. A description of the process itself, as well as a table showing the strength and other properties of this process, are included in the article.
