Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Epoxy Coatings Tough Finishes Relatively new to the con market, epoxy coating provide a tough finish hare use areas particularly where abrasion is a are available in a variety o clear and pigmented Ep oxies offer good resistance tc household chemicals, deter gents, food, beverages, oil grease and even garden chem icals like fertilizes. These coatings generally fal into two categories: Exposy-es ters (oil modified types) ani two package epoxies. Like oth er enamels, they may be spray ed, rolled or brushed onto floors, walls and other surfaces Epoxy ester types are avail- able as clear varnishes, pri- mers and undercoats, gloss anc coatings for special uses. They When To Remove Paint Splatters When painting a window sash or the putty around the glass, it's difficult to avoid getting a few paint spatters on the pane. The Canadian Paint Manufac- turers Association suggests there are two correct times to remove those spatters when the paint is still fresh or when it is hard. Keep a clean cloth bandy to wipe off any paint at once. But if you don't take this step immediately, or if the paint is too close to soft putty to risk wiping off, wait a few days. 'Then it's easy to scrape off with a single-edged razor blade. When the paint spatter is partly dry, it, smears and won't come off eaily with either a cloth or razor blade. Safety First With Solvents When working with any finish that contains solvents-, use cau- tion. Always work in a well- ventilated room with doors and windows open. This will reduce offer good resistance to mil s.smi-gloss enamels and f 1 a chemicals and provide a dui able finish especially suited t floors and stairs. Two package epoxies ar available as clear, colored en aniels, undercoats, and ant corrosive primers. They ar marketed as two componen kits containing two pints, tw quarts, etc. You mix the com ponents yourself, wait about half hour, then .paint. Two package epoxies hav a super hard finish that is high ly chip resistant. It resist chemical attack even gaso- line, oil and liquor and can withtand steam and hot water These coatings may be used on concrete floors and walls, cin derblock and other masonry surfaces, garage floors am walls, metal tools, cabinets am equipment, laundry floors am walls. Old ceramic tiles in bathrooms can be colorfully re- stored. Even the exteriors o washing machines and refrig erators treated to a new look with these coatings. One characteristic of two- package epoxies is that the saint begins to thicken and ev- entually b e comes unusable about eight hours after the components are mixed. If nec- essary, you. may be able to >rolong the "pot-life" by plac- ng the paint in a cold area of TOUT basement or- away from leat. The cold slows the ch cal process. It's best, of course to mix just enough paint for one day's use. Here are a few tips for paint- ing with epoxies: Epoxies may chalk in sun- ight so be cautious about us- ing them for outside work. Make sure that your tools lave no old paint on them be- ore you use an epoxy coating, f the tools need to be clean- ed, use the solvent recommend- ed by the manufacturer for thinning the epoxy coating. Be very careful when apply- ing epoxies to a previously painted surface. They may pen- etrate and wrinkle the old paint Test a small patch first. Finally, use epoxies in a well ventilated area since the sol- Frldqy, July 10, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 HOME OF THE WEEK 46-4- DESIGN No. CK-1001 1221 Sq.Ft. 57-8 HOMOGRAF COMPANY OF CANADA 40 JARVIS AT KING E., TORONTO 1.

City or town province ANADA SAFETY COUNCIL Lethbridge Herald steps and sidewalks, place the light bulb so that it is incon- spicuous, with just enough light showing to give the de- sired effect, as a glaring light could be dangerous. White lights create a more vivid im- pression among colored objects. Placed behind foliage or in be- tween tree branches a love silhouette effect is producer. Green lights too are exceller for trees and shrubs. Overhead colored light placed throughout the gard or just around the patio or si ting area, such as twinkler which are open at the bottom or Japanese style lantern are most attractive and give lovely soft light. The lighte colors give the best effect as rule. The mushroom type lamp are ideal to light up beds am borders and bring out the tea ture and color of the flowers If you like something diffe ent, the blue white of a mei cury vapor lamp will create charming silhouette with weep ing willows. The sealed unite of course, do not become dirtj and require little maintenance Out door units, which in elude cords, sockets, plugs anc connections, are weatherproo ed. Some people wonder if the heat from the lights will harm the plants, but there is no enough to do any damage. There are also twinkle types to stick in the ground t highlight special flowers or shrubs. Candles in container create a friendly atmospher and some are scented to kee] the bugs away, which is ai ways a big help. Gas lamps are also very at tractive and can add much to outdoor living at night. A friend of ours down East told of hav ing artificial Illy pads which she clipped onto light bulbs When floating in the water they gave a most delightful effect I have never heard of them and do not know if they are ob- tainable here or not. You can install weather-proa outlets at convenient locations on the outside of your house, or bury the wiring under- ground. Whatever method you decide on, make sure that ev- erything is safe. Also, ever type and color of lights you use do not overlight as the whole effect is then lost. Mr. When do I prune my lilacs? Ans. As soon as the bloom- ing period is over, remove all dead flowers and any suckers that have grown up from the bottom. If the lilacs are get- ting straggly, prune out some of the old stems, 1-3 each year for three years or Vi each year for four years. If done all at once, blooms will be drastical- ly reduced. Any questions should be sent with self addressed, stamp- ed envelope to Mrs. I. Young, 3620 Centre B. St. N.W., Cal- gary 43. Patching Damaged Concrete A sidewalk that has settled, a crack in a basement floor, or other damaged concrete -often can be restored by timely patching. Prepackaged concrete mixes are available to make the re- pair job easier. Be sure to pre- pare the old surface as de- scribed below and follow the manufacturer's directions for mixing and placing the patch. If you insist on doing it your- self from scratch, the Portland Cement A s s o c i a fen recom- mends these steps to ensure a satisfactory patching job: First use a chisel to roughen the area to be patched and clean the old concrete through- ly. Cut or chip the ed; straight and at right angles, or slightly undercut the surface to provide a key at the edge of the patch. Wire brush the sur- face and use clean water to wash away all dust and loose particles. Dampen the old surface but don't leave it excessively wet. Make a thick, creamy mix- are of cement and water and 3 r u s h it on the prepared sur- face. The patch should be jlaced before this creamy mix- jire dries. Then make a stiff mix of 1 art Portland cement, 2 parts isnd and 2 parts pea gravel. Tamp the mixture firmly into he cavity and smooth it off lightly with a wood float. After the concrete begins to stiffen, finish it with a hand toat. You may use a steel rowel if the surrounding con- crete has a steel trowel finish. 'or narrow cracks where pea gravel cannot be used, use a mortar made of 1 part cement aad 3 parts sand. Keep the new patch damp for at least 5 days. Grow Cornflowers A lovely blue for the garden comes from cornflowers. If you will scatter the seeds among your spring-flowering bulbs, the plants will help hide :he yellovying bulb leaves. About the time leaves have dis- appeared; you'll have a new crop of blooms.
