'The Magic Underwater Coating' 

They say that familiarity breeds contempt and it is certainly true that we all can sometimes take for granted those things which are always around us, not noticing how amazing they might be just because they are just part of our every day life. So, it was with some surprise that we watched the astonished reaction of attendees at AOG to the Alocit underwater application demonstration on our stand. As Chris Harrey, Australian manager for A&E, reported:

... the underwater coating demonstration went down a storm! No one had ever seen such a thing and watched in amazement. People would come back and bring other people to show them the 'magic underwater coating' ...

Obviously, we need to do more to ensure that everybody takes us for granted. No point in keeping all that amazingness to ourselves! Click on this link: AOG Underwater, if you would like to see a 'live' application.

As well as this bit of unexpected excitement, the show went really well. Very high quality visitors, lots of interested attendees. A really worthwhile exercise ... particularly for Jeff Fraser of E&M Industries who went home with a case of wine courtesy of A&E - and Tracey Winn of the Australian Corrosion Association who graciously agreed to draw the winning card.
