DUR-O-LITE -- NEWS [cached]

About the inventor - Charles Below, the inventor of the inorganic composite powder Dur-O-Lite and of the high temperature coatings and paint (C-Temp 900 series and Tempra-Coat series paints and coatings), with accredited degrees in architecture, chemistry, and horticulture, a Captain in the United States Navy Reserve, retired, and attached to NASA development of heat shielding and thermal coatings and paints (Columbia made space shuttle inaugural orbital flight on April 12, 1981 with the 1 st stage fuel tank coated with Dur-O-Lite, a gel coat color white). In the last ten years more people, or should I say companies, have picked up his patents and copyrights, and have changed them for their own benefit so they would not have to give accreditation to Below. Some of the other projects he is working on is an underwater coating system to be able to preserve and anti foul large ships, a cement Dur-O-Lite pipe (Dur-O-Con) that can be used to move crude oils long distances at high temperatures, high temperature steam insulation covers for steam pipe and boilers, low frictional nonablative antifouling coatings for marine use, and prefabricated paneling and modular home construction for space and undersea use.

Charles Below has offered to license his thermal paint and coating formulas to other paint manufacturers or anyone interested in the Dur-O-Lite materials.
