FEATURED, MEGA RUST

Mega Rust Workshop

Date : 2009-03-12
2 Separate Workshops on “How to Inspect for Flash Rust”
To replace the description sent out on 2009-03-09
Contact Person: Lydia Frenzel

Frenzel tried to cover two workshops with one write-up. This was confusing to some people.

The tag line “Practical Solutions for Practical Problems” reflects Dr. Frenzel’s approach to life with the “Keep it Simple Stupid” approach. If you are an inspector and never been on a waterjetting job, OR If you have ever been in an argument concerning light, moderate, or heavy flash rust, this workshop is for you.

Here are two separate Press Releases.

    I heard there are some new safety risks when applying teflon. any advice?

  2. lydia frenzel Says:

    This is not my area of expertise. I don’t know about any safety risks when applying teflon. I can enquire of my certified industrial hygienist colleagues.
    Are you talking about applying coatings that have teflon fillers; or applying a sheet of teflon to a surface?

  3. Mulch Hockessin de Says:

    Intriguing , I am curious what the statistics are on your first point there…

    i was starting to believe that i might probably be the only woman / man which cared about this, at the least at present i recognize im not loonie 🙂 i will make it a point to find out more about a handful of different articles right after i get a little caffeine in me, it can be very hard to read without having my coffee, I was really late last evening grinding zynga poker and after getting my fill with a few brewskies i ended up getting rid of all my zynga poker chips adios for now 🙂
