Tuesday October 30th members of the ATD team attended the Chicago Women In Trades. Led by tradeswomen, CWIT continues to work toward changing these statistics by providing support and education to tradeswomen; increasing training for women and girls to enter nontraditional jobs; providing technical assistance to employers, unions, and other tradeswomen groups; documenting trends in the nontraditional workplace; and advocating for improved policies and practices that support women’s access to nontraditional training and jobs, as well as success and safety on the job.
To preserve a donated piece of art located on an affluent college campus in Northern IL ATC was requested to develop a long lasting coating system to remedy heavy red rust corrosion and discoloration. To maximize long term protection the old coating was removed by abrasive blasting. A zinc rich epoxy and polyamidamine epoxy and hybrid polysiloxane were applied. This was performed on off hours not to disrupt normal campus operations.
