 Formica DecoMetalFormica Canada announces the expansion of its popular DecoMetal Laminates line with seven new designs. As designers continue to give a nod to Art Deco styling by using luxe metal looks in commercial projects, these new additions add even more unique metal finishes for use in vertical surface applications, expanding the possibilities of metal surfacing designs.

“The DecoMetal collection is loved by designers across the country who use it to bring warmth and innovation to the spaces they create,” said Christelle Locat-Rainville, marketing director for Formica Canada. "These seven new designs aim to make the collection even more versatile to help design future spaces that are more elegant and unique."

The new designs include four printed solid metal options—solid aluminum sheets artistically detailed and textured with a protective finish—as well as three metal laminate designs that use metal foils as the decorative surface.

Printed Solid Metal

Zinc Patina and Oxidized Silver Patina: Channeling the beautiful natural effects of weathering and age on metals, the two Patina series additions are usable in both modern and traditional environments. Zinc
Patina offers a warm silver-gray finish and Oxidized Silver Patina brings a bolder and dramatic de-silvered, blackened visual.

Platinum Linework and Black Linework: Finely detailed with rippling vertical line weights, the Linework design emulates the ribbed panel trend. This design is available in a warm silver look or with a popular blackened effect.

Metal Laminate

Antique Rubbed Copper:
A timeless metal visual, the Rubbed effect utilizes a decorative, hand- rubbed oil technique on real copper foils for a classically crafted finish.

Woven Argent and Woven Brass: The linen-like fabric texture of the Woven series brings a rich tactile experience to silver and brass foils.

CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart.
