UBiee Team Spawns Global Harmonic Circle of Friendshi

Offering hope beyond the worst personal conditions, UBiee Team’s harmonic trio of business opportunities reaches out to friends around the world by offering a safe harbor to make money, save money, and protect our environment.

(PRWEB) May 27, 2021 -- Friends sharing with friends global eBusiness opportunities that create a harmonic healthy welfare circle of friendship – that is what the UBiee Team is all about. The ever-widening range of leveraged global business opportunities now engulfs transportation and two communications products and services.

Offering hope beyond the worst personal conditions, UBiee Team’s harmonic trio of business opportunities reaches out to friends around the world by offering a safe harbor to make money, save money, and protect our environment.

On May 13, 2005, TMCnet News reported that, “Rising Gasoline Prices Worry Majority of U.S. Workers, According to Monster Poll; 77 percent of those surveyed say gas prices affect their job search and willingness to commute.”

In an article written by staff writer, Ron Scherer, of The Christian Science Monitor, “The price of gasoline has begun a springtime surge that experts believe will push it to a national average of $2.50 a gallon by Memorial Day.”

It is the view of the American Express Financial Corporation, Equity Market Update for April 2005, the “Record high oil prices of $57 a barrel, increasing signs of higher overall inflation and slower-than-expected job growth…” have taken “…a toll on investor confidence in March and the first quarter of 2005.” They further stated that “…speculation increased that a global supply shock might lead to even higher oil prices.” It was further noted that “Gasoline prices hit $3 a gallon in some areas on the West Coast.”

The most recent addition, the UBiee PowerPill Fe-3, offers the global community personal savings by not only improving the environment, but also by economizing fuel consumption while conditioning engines. The UBiee PowerPill Fe-3 business opportunity provides a three-prong approach to healthy welfare.

Savings by maximizing fuel economy, increased mileage of up to 42% per tank, conditioning and cleaning carburetors, injectors, and entire fuel system, lubricating valves, and ability to integrate with both gasoline or diesel engines.

Global Environmental Impact addresses the six major air pollutant gases: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, sulfur oxide, and hydrocarbons (benzene, terpene,etc.). These gases have significant environmental and health impacts.

The UBiee PowerPill Fe-3 reduces harmful exhaust emissions by up to 78% for carbon monoxide, 73% for smoke pollutants, and 23% for hydrocarbon emissions. It is made of non-toxic, all natural formulation, with 100% active ingredients and improves fuel combustion by enabling engines to burn completely with absolutely no residue left

Global Business Opportunity offers personalized websites, free VoIP with active licenses, global internet marketing rights, and live 24/7 support with personal training.

OVUM Research submitted projections for the new era of communication known as VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). “The consumer VoIP market is forecast to grow from almost 16 million users at the end of 2004 to 197 million users at the end of 2008…Total revenues will rise from just over $1 billion in 2004 to just over $15 billion in 2008.”

AT&T; Corporation, the industry behemoth that started the telephone business in the 1870s, describes internet telephones as a "…communications tidal wave…”, and that “VoIP traffic is projected to account for approximately 75% of the world’s voice traffic by 2007”.

Seattle venture capitalist, Greg Gottesman, calls it "…one of the most important changes in communications in the past 100 years."

The union of 3WTel Superior VoIP and the UBiee team has provided global community savings with its highly leveraged communication business opportunity.

The 3WTel Superior VoIP communication global business opportunity creates savings of up to 80% on calls from PC to telephones or mobile phones, free global communication PC to PC between subscribers 24/7, and includes eTools, eLearning for the entire family, and software packages.

Fluorspar Market Recovering from the Phasing-out of CFCs

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18036) has announced the addition of The Economics of Fluospar to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) May 27, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18036) has announced the addition of The Economics of Fluospar to their offering.

The early years of this decade have seen a gradual growth in world demand for fluorspar as well as significant price rises for acid-grade material. The market is recovering from the impact of the phasing-out of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and is responding to their replacement by more ozone-friendly and also more fluorspar dependant products. Production of fluorspar fell to a low of 3.6Mt in 1994 in response to the restrictions imposed by the Montreal protocol on the use of fluorocarbons, particularly CFCs in refrigerant gases, aerosol propellants and foam blowing agents. Production has not yet recovered to the peak of 5.48Mt in 1989 but since 1995 there has been some stabilisation and output has remained between 4.2 - 4.5Mt since 1997. With the rapid reduction in world output in the early 1990s there was considerable rationalisation of production and many mines closed. However, the recent fall in exports of fluorspar concentrates from China and the envisaged modest growth in the market has resulted in some increases in production in Mexico, Mongolia and Iran. There are several proposals for new mine operations, including developments of deposits in Vietnam and Western Australia, and the re-opening of Burin mine in Canada. Overall requirement for fluorspar is expected to rise to 5Mt by 2030 and acid-grade will account for around 3.5Mt of this total. This represents an average annual growth rate of just under 0.5% for fluorspar as a whole and 0.9%pa for acid grade.

The key trends, issues and developments in the market are now analysed in this major new report. It provides a clear insight into all areas of the industry and an authoritative analysis of the prospects for the future.

Silicon & Ferrosilicon Markets Move in Different Directions

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18009) has announced the addition of The Economics of Silicon & Ferrosilicon to their offering.

(PRWEB) May 26, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18009) has announced the addition of The Economics of Silicon & Ferrosilicon to their offering.

Although the production of silicon metal and ferrosilicon are closely associated, the markets are very different. Silicon, which is used in the growing aluminium, chemical and electronics industries, is expected to show growth in demand of about 6%py over the next five years, with silicone chemicals being the fastest-growing sector in volume terms.

Ferrosilicon, on the other hand, depends for a major part of its demand on cast iron, the market for which has been stagnant for some years. Demand for ferrosilicon in carbon and alloy steels is growing, however, and the market almost equals that in cast iron. Market growth for ferrosilicon is expected to be less than 1.5%py up to 2007, but demand for use in steels will exceed 2%.On the supply side, world production of silicon metal increased from about 730kt in 1992 to almost 1.2Mt in 2002, mainly because of increasing Chinese output, the data for which are unreliable. Silicon metal is produced in 15 countries and in 2001 Chinese production accounted for about 39% of world production, with output in Norway (12%), the USA (11%) and Brazil (10%) accounting for most of the remainder. World production of ferrosilicon stood at 4.23Mt in 2001, a decline of 1.7% on the previous year in which production had increased by 12%. Again, Chinese output is the largest in the world, but it peaked at 1.46Mt in 1996. Nevertheless, output in 2001 stood at almost 1.4Mt, compared with 376kt in 1985.

'The Economics of Silicon & Ferrosilicon' analyses the key trends, issues and developments in the market. It provides a clear insight into all areas of the industry and an authoritative analysis of the prospects for the future.

Sharp Rise in Synthetic Gypsum Consumption

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18013) has announced the addition of The Economics of Gypsum & Anhydrite to their offering.

(PRWEB) May 26, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18013) has announced the addition of The Economics of Gypsum & Anhydrite to their offering.

Natural gypsum is the most common form of gypsum used around the world but consumption of synthetic material has started to rise sharply, especially in Europe and North America. The most commonly used type of synthetic gypsum is produced by flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) equipment at coal-fired power stations. Other forms of synthetic gypsum, such as titanogypsum, fluorogypsum and phosphygypsum can be used, but levels of impurities and the local availability of natural gypsum affect demand.

Consumption of synthetic gypsum, especially FGD gypsum, in industrialised countries started to rise in the 1990s and is expected to continue to do so. This rise was caused by two main factors affecting electricity companies: the introduction of environmental legislation in the 1980s, and the rising cost of disposal of coal combustion products. Global consumption of gypsum in all its forms was estimated at 149Mt in 2003.

The main market for natural gypsum is as a retarder in Portland cement, especially in industrialising economies where production of calcined gypsum products is much smaller than the developed economies. In 2003, cement production consumed an estimated 76Mt of gypsum. Plasterboard and plaster production was estimated to have accounted for 58.5Mt, and the other main market for gypsum was in agriculture, where an estimated 6.5Mt was used. Cement will continue to be the main market for gypsum, despite the recent increases in plasterboard capacity in North America, Europe and Asia. Over the next five years consumption of FGD gypsum will rise at a faster rate than most other forms of gypsum.

The key trends, issues and developments in the market are now analysed in report 'The Economics of Gypsum & Anhydrite'. It provides a clear insight into all areas of the industry and an authoritative analysis of the prospects for the future.

The report covers the following countries:
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Laos, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mauritania, Mexico, Moldova, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Sudan, Sweden, Syria, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, UK, USA, Uzbekistan

China Emerges as Dominant Primary Metal Producer

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18015) has announced the addition of The Economics of Magnesium Metal to their offering.

(PRWEB) May 26, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18015) has announced the addition of The Economics of Magnesium Metal to their offering.

The price of magnesium metal has been in slow decline since 1995 and has only recently (late 2003) started to recover. World consumption in 2003 was of the order of 660,000t, a significant rise from 338,000t used in 1993. If substantial capacity expansion plans are realised and the period of price stability continues, world capacity for primary metal should be around 670,000tpy by the end of 2004.

There are two process technologies currently used commercially to produce primary metal; electrolysis of magnesium chloride and thermal reduction of magnesium carbonate ores with ferrosilicon. The conventional wisdom has been that thermal processes would gradually be replaced by electrolytic technology, however, in recent years there has been less incentive to invest in new electrolytic projects. In the early 1990s, around 76% of world capacity used an electrolytic process, while this figure had dropped to 54% in early 2003. Thermal technology is particularly well suited to use in a developing economy, as plant sizes are small, capital investment is low and the process is relatively labour intensive. In contrast electrolytic technology requires substantial capital investment, significant amounts of electric power and produces little waste. This trend is reflected in the number of sizeable electrolytic units in economically more developed countries that have been closed or idled and the remarkable increase in Chinese capacity. In 2003, Chinese primary production of magnesium was reported at almost 65% of the estimated world total, compared to less than 5% in 1994.

The key trends, issues and developments in the market are now analysed in 'The Economics of Magnesium Metal'. It provides a clear insight into all areas of the industry and an authoritative analysis of the prospects for the future.

Countries covered in the report include:
Argentina, Australia, Autria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Republic of Congo,Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Serbia and Montenegro, Singapore, Slovenia, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, Ukraine, UK, USA

Worldwide Consumption of Dead Burned Magnesia Expected to Increase

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18027) has announced the addition of The Economics of Magnesium Compounds & Chemicals to their offering.

Dublin (PRWEB) May 26, 2021 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c18027) has announced the addition of The Economics of Magnesium Compounds & Chemicals to their offering.

The world refractory magnesia market continues to be in a state of over supply but has been moving back closer to balance for a number of years as companies in Italy, the UK and the USA exit from the market. The majority of global magnesia is located in China, North Korea and Russia, accounting for around 75% of global dead burned magnesia capacity based on magnesite. In developed economies such as Japan, the USA and Western Europe, total capacity for production of magnesia is just 0.7Mtpy out of a world total of around 10Mtpy. World consumption of magnesium compounds is dominated by the refractories industry, which accounts for around 70-80% of global usage.

Magnesite and magnesia producers have experienced very little growth in this market for many years as advances in refractory technology continue to design out their products. However, over the next few years worldwide consumption of dead burned magnesia is expected to increase slightly in response to strong growth in the Chinese steel and non-ferrous metals industries.

This report forecasts that overall consumption of dead burned magnesia, caustic calcined magnesia and fused magnesia will rise to around 8Mtpy in 2008, compared to 7.6Mt in 2005. While a significant increase, this rise would only take consumption back to 2001 levels and will be highly dependant on a sustained price rise in Chinese consumption of dead burned magnesia in refractories.

'The Economics of Magnesium Compounds & Chemicals' analyses the key trends, issues and developments in the market. It provides a clear insight into all areas of the industry and an authoritative analysis of the prospects for the future.

Oil Pollution Treatment Developed by International Environmental Products

International Environmental Products has developed an oil pollution treatment for any size of oil spill. This bioremediation treatment, The Ultimate Oil Guard, can clean an oil spill in only one application, with no ecological after affects, in as little as seven days.

(PRWEB) May 18, 2021 -- International Environmental Products (IEP) has developed the most cost-effective bioremediation program for oil pollution treatment on land or water. With only one application—not the multiple applications required by other oil pollution treatments—this non-toxic, ecologically friendly oil pollution treatment can show results within 7-45 days, depending on the type and location of the oil pollution and the weather during the treatment cycle.

“The technical mechanism of bioremediation and its advantages have been well understood for some time now,” said Joseph Dougherty, Vice President of Sales at IEP. “We have built on the success of two of the largest oil pollution bioremediation projects in history, the Exxon Valdez, which polluted over 70 miles of shoreline, and the Prestige Spill bioremediation. Whether the spill is small or large, our product will resolve the problem of oil pollution on land or as sheens on water.”

The Ultimate Oil Guard bioremediation treatment is a nutrient soup that stimulates the rapid growth of natural, oil-eating microorganisms. These microorganisms digest the oil pollution into its harmless components, carbon dioxide and water. Once the oil pollution is eliminated, the microorganism population returns to its normal size.

The Ultimate Oil Guard only needs to be sprayed over the oil pollution. It should be used by:
• Environmental companies that want a complete environmental clean-up solution for oil spills and leaks
• Petrol companies and transporters, to treat and take an action on any possible leak
• Ships, to spray over any accidental bilge leak
• Ports and fuelling stations, to treat leaks from pumping fuel and other small spills
• Oil Spill Response Institutions, to act on any type of oil spill

The Ultimate Oil Guard bioremediation treatment will not harm rubber, metal, wood, or fiberglass, will not wash away in tidal areas, contains no bacteria, and is totally biodegradable. To order a supply to keep on hand in case of oil pollution or spills of any size, visit www.UltimateOilGuard.com.

About International Environmental Products
Since 2000, IEP has been working to improve the bioremediation treatments used to clean up oil pollution. The Ultimate Oil Guard and the Ultimate Oil Guard Bilge Cleaner have been tested and listed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at http://www.epa.gov/oilspill/ncp/UltimateOilGuard.htm, and by the Florida, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania Departments of Environmental Protection.

DOJ Files Civil Action Against MagCorp for PCB Violations

Leading U.S. polluter, US Magnesium Corporation of Salt Lake City, has been on the EPA's list as the largest toxic air polluter in the country. Though it emissions have improved, they are still significant. Local inventor said he demonstrated the successful burning of some of their emissions for energy and clean-up, but they declined to integrate the technique.

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) May 13, 2022 -- The U.S. Department of Justice filed a civil action against US Magnesium Corporation (MagCorp) of Salt Lake City Thursday for illegal manufacture, disposal and lack of cleaning PCB waste.

MagCorp is the only producer of primary magnesium in the United States, drawing from the Great Salt Lake. They also manufacture liquid chlorine.

This is not the first time MagCorp has been charged. For nearly 13 years, they topped the EPA's list as the largest toxic air polluter in the country. In 1998, MagCorp emitted 57.7 million pounds of chlorine gas into the atmosphere. By 2003, they had reduced that down to 2.9 million pounds. The waste-water ditches around USMC-SLC are contaminated with dioxin at levels as high as 170 parts per billion. EPA action levels for clean-up begin at one part per billion. (ref)

According to today's filing, PCBs are toxic chemicals that are extremely stable and persistent in the environment. They have been proven to cause liver damage, adverse skin effects, and changes in other biological functions, and are suspected of causing cancer in humans. PCBs bioaccumulate in humans and other organisms.

When MagCorp propositioned the local government about locating their facilities in Utah in 1969, a deal was struck in which MagCorp was promised certain tax advantages and a set power rate of 2 cents per kilowatt hour of energy, in exchange for so many jobs brought into the economy. The 30-year electricity contract expired in 1999, and, after several years of court disputes, was renewed at 2.514 cents per kW-h in Nov. 2004. That amount is slightly lower than "cost of service" according to Public Service Commission docket number 03-035-19. (ref) A good rate for municipalities purchasing power at wholesale rates is 4 cents per kW-h.

Though MagCorp filed for bankruptcy on August 2, 2001, the principals do not seem to be hurting for cash. According to KSL radio in Salt Lake City, one of the members of the board of directors of the Renco Group, Inc, which owns MagCorp, Ira Rennart, recently bought an entire city block outside of New York City (Hampton) and built a multi a mansion worth tens of millions of dollars.

Late in 1994, Salt Lake City inventor, Paul Pantone took a sample of the emissions from MagCorp and demonstrated that he could burn it in his GEET engine. He noted significant reduction in toxic emissions. When he approached two MagCorp engineers about integrating this solution, they said to him, "You don't seem to understand. We do not have an emissions problem." When Pantone pointed out the extent of paint corrosion on the cars in their parking lot, again, they denied that the emissions from their plant were to blame. Pantone has a phone conference appointment tomorrow morning with Tom Tripp, a manager at MagCorp, to present this proposal once again.

Pantone commented that when he first moved to Salt Lake City, he noticed that the bridges appeared as though they had been acid washed. When he learned of MagCorp and investigated their facility, he realized why this is the case, considering the amount of acid steam emitted from the plant. He thinks he can make a difference. Will MagCorp listen?

Perhaps Mr. Rennart can spare some of his personal wealth for some research and development into Pantone's claim.

OX-GEN, INC. Announces a New RIGID Line of Self Rescue and First Aid, Non-Pressurized, Non-Explosive Oxygen Breathing Units for Emergency Use

OX-GEN is pleased to announce the development of a new Rigid O2 Generation System product that is in final research and development phases that exceeds FDA requirements.

Boise, ID (PRWEB) May 11, 2022 -- The OX-GEN Rigid O2 Generation System provides instant, emergency oxygen at a minimum rate of 6 liters per minute for a minimum of 15 minutes. It uses a rigid three-chamber container with the necessary pre-measured chemicals in place in each chamber. A rotary valve (or valves) connects each of the chambers. A reaction catalyst is stored within the interior of one of the rotary valves. The unit is activated when all of the valves are opened in the proper sequence. This allows the catalyst and chemicals to mix and start generating oxygen immediately. The valves remain open during the unit’s use to allow the generated oxygen to leave the generator and be conveyed to the oxygen mask. The unit generates 99.9% pure oxygen.


In addition to government agencies, other organizations that are interested in the system are fire stations, rescue teams, combat military operations and mine operations where pressurized oxygen is unsafe to use.

The OX-GEN Rigid O2 Generation System can be used in the various places as follows if ever oxygen supply is reduced to an unsafe level. Remember, a person can survive for weeks without food and days without water, but only minutes without oxygen.

- Homes
- Swimming Pool Areas
- Automobiles
- Police Cars
- Schools Offices
- Military Vehicles
- Churches
- Athletic Facilities
- Industrial Facilities
- Wilderness Areas
- Construction Sites
- Remote Location
- Hotels and Restaurants
- Mass Transit
- Boats and RVs
- Ski Resorts/Ski Patrols
- Public Buildings and Vehicles
- Non Commercial Planes

Frank Fosella, Chairman and President of OX-GEN explained, “Oxygen is vital for life, yet it is not readily accessible. Until recently, a call to 911 was the only way to receive oxygen in an emergency. The availability of this product will ensure greater safety and peace of mind.”

SoftPoint Industries Introduces Asper Grit Non Skid Additive for Paints and Coatings

Asper Grit is a new, polmeric, non-skid additive that is harder than other polymers used for this application. Asper Grit is also lighter than sand which reduces settling when mixed into paints Asper Grit is free of crystalline silica and is economically priced.

Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) May 5, 2022 -- SoftPoint Industries today announced the availability of Asper Grit polymeric particles for non-skid applications. Asper Grit represents the latest in polymer technology and offers several advantages over conventional non-skid additives such as micronized waxes, silica sands, and aluminum oxides. Asper Grit is derived from a thermoset polymer and is harder than the waxes. It is lighter than both silica sand and aluminum oxide which reduces its tendency to settle. Unlike virtually all other additives, Asper Grit is clear and can be used with any color paint.


“We screened dozens of additives before selecting Asper Grit as the best in class for this application” said Dr. Richard Porter, the company’s founder. “We also utilize a special grinding technique to create angular particles that provide an aggressive non-skid surface. An independent test lab measured a significant increase in the COF (coefficient of friction) of paint samples prepared with Asper Grit. The dry COF was measured at 0.85, which is well above the recommended ADA level of 0.5.”

Asper Grit is designed for use in most floor coating applications. These include marine areas such as boat decks, outdoor patios and balconies, as well as household areas like garage floors, pool decks, and basements. Since the particles are compatible with most urethane, epoxy and acrylic coatings, they can be used on most any surface appropriate for these resins, including concrete, wood, fiberglass, steel, etc. The particles can be mixed into the coating prior to application or applied using the broadcast technique.

Asper Grit is conveniently packaged in a tube with a shaker top for easy dispensing. The shaker top features both a wide opening for pouring and a sifter opening that is ideal for sprinkling the product onto a painted surface. Asper Grit is economically priced at $12.99 per pint and is available today for sale exclusively on the company’s website www.softsandrubber.com.

Modular Soap Dispensing System Changes the Way People Clean Their Hands in North America

Protonics Chemical Corp. introduces the Modular Soap Dispensing (MSD) system. The first of it’s kind in North America that uses a simple snap-in modular technology. This gives people total control over the design and the functionality of their hand soap dispensing system. Testing the Vancouver, BC hand soap market in the first four months of 2005 proved that people prefer the flexibility and savings they get from the Modular Soap Dispensing (MSD) system.

(PRWEB) May 1, 2022 -- Today, the latest trend in North America is to use foam hand soap to wash your hands. If a person wanted to upgrade their older style soap dispensers to the newer style foam generating systems, the old dispensers would have to be removed and new ones installed in their place. When they are using a MSD system there is no need to change dispensers to upgrade from liquid hand soap to foam hand soap, or to spray mist hand soap, or to a no touch system. This is done in seconds by simply snapping out one module and snapping in the desired replacement module in its place. A person will never have to change their hand soap dispensers again to keep up with the latest trends. To see some of the benefits of the new MSD system, a detailed on screen movie presentation can be viewed at http://www.protonicschem.com.

There are problems that arise when a person decides to change their hand soap dispensing systems. Hand soap dispensers are firmly mounted to walls and mirrors with any one, or a combination of, permanent adhesive tape, screws and assorted wall mounting hardware. Removal of the old dispensing system often leaves parts of the wall torn out when the permanent adhesive tape is removed. The screws and other fastening systems leave holes in the wall when the old dispensers are removed. This may have to be repaired before new dispensers can be installed. All dispensers are not the same size and walls may even need touch up repainting to cover up the areas that were hidden behind the old dispensers.

With the Protonics Chemical Corp. MSD system you never have to go through this scenario again. The MSD system is “Modular”, which means that in only a few seconds’ new modules can be snapped into place. You can use the MSD system and replacement modules to dispense liquid, foam, and spray mist hand soaps and sanitizers and not have to change your existing dispensers to accomplish this. The exterior of the dispenser is also a modular design and offers various snap-in design-coloring combinations that accent the most discerning hand washing areas. Even when you redecorate, the MSD system can be easily converted to a new design combination that suits your coloring scheme.

Best of all, the MSD system saves people money on their hand soap costs. In tests performed by Protonics Chemical Corp. it was revealed that other hand soap systems dispensed up to 3.5 mls of detergent with every dose. This is significant when you realize that the average person uses 2 to 3 doses of hand soap, from a dispenser, each time they wash their hands. Compare this to the MSD system, which boasts of a stingy .5ml dose of hand detergent or sanitizer. Test data collected in the Vancouver, B.C. market during the first four months of 2005 shows that people experienced an average cost reduction of 16.0% with the MSD system.

Protonics Chemical Corp. manufactures a full line of hand soaps and sanitizers exclusively for use in the MSD system. With their manufacturing plant conveniently located in Vancouver, BC, they are very well positioned to be strong competitors in oversea, Western and Central USA, and the Canadian hand cleaning market. The MSD system will be officially launched in May of 2005 and will be distributed from a network of exclusive distributors throughout North America. To meet with the anticipated product demand, there is an immediate need for distributors in many cities. To open the MSD system launch with a bang, Protonics Chemical Corp. is offering their exclusive distributors a unique dispenser rebate program, which will provide the MSD dispensers at no cost. More information about the MSD system and the exclusive distributor opportunity is available at the Protonics Chemical Corp. web site at http://www.protonicschem.com.

Permabond Introduces UV-Curable Adhesives

Permabond is pleased to announce the launch of their new range of UV-curable adhesives. This product line compliments our existing lines of adhesives and sealants offering rapid cure times and adhesion to an even wider variety of substrates.

Somerset, NJ (PRWEB) April 1, 2022 -- Permabond is pleased to announce the launch of their new range of UV-curable adhesives. This product line compliments our existing lines of adhesives and sealants offering rapid cure times and adhesion to an even wider variety of substrates.


UV-curable adhesives are single part and cure within seconds of exposure to ultra-violet light. This allows for accurate alignment of components as the adhesives do not cure until exposed to the UV light. Once exposed to the UV light, cure is virtually instant. This provides the user considerable savings in production time and increased throughput.

Permabond’s new UV-curables can be used on a wide variety of applications from bonding glass furniture and cabinets to tiny electrical components on a high-speed production line.

The products have been especially developed to provide maximum optical clarity and are non-yellowing, so they will give a perfect aesthetic finish. They are also available in a range of viscosities to suit the gap fill requirements of the joint. The adhesives are high-strength and have exhibited excellent durability. A flexible, shock and impact resistant grade is also available which is suitable for applications where differential thermal expansion would be an issue.

Permabond is a leading manufacturer and supplier of adhesives and sealants for component assembly, manufacturing, maintenance and repair, with quality solutions for bonding, threadlocking, retaining, gasketing, and sealing applications. Contact Permabond by mail: 20C World’s Fair Drive, Somerset, NJ 08873; phone: 800-640-7599; fax: 800-334-3219 or email: e-mail protected from spam bots.
