SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - April 21, 2008) - Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) will host International Paint, an Akzo Nobel (PINKSHEETS:AKZOY) (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) company, as its special guest on Radio on Monday, April 14, 2008, as part of the weekly online broadcast of "Industry Today." Akzo Nobel is one of the world's leading providers of high-performance coatings and fireproofing materials. During this special feature of "Industry Today," learn about International Paint's Chartek 1709 and the significant role it can play in saving time and money during the construction phase of your next project.

Chartek 1709, an epoxy intumescent coating that can be quickly and easily applied by airless spray or trowel techniques, provides a highly durable, lightweight and physically robust system that is resistant to damage during transportation and erection, making it ideally suited for off-site fabrication. The excellent adhesion, superior abrasion resistance and high compressive strength of Chartek 1709 makes it ideal for modular construction of equipment that must be transported. With many operators of refineries and petrochemical plants acutely aware of the problems of corrosion under fire protection and the high cost of maintaining and repairing cracked and damaged cement based fire protection, Chartek 1709 offers a cost effective solution to providing corrosion and fire protection in a single system.

Market-leading Chartek® materials are used in the Oil & Gas, Refining and Chemical Processing industries to reduce the risk of structural collapse under extreme high temperatures of hydrocarbon fires. Join David Callahan, International Paint's Petrochemical Market Manager, along with Crazy Al of "Industry Today" to learn more about this product and its ability to exceed your expectations.
