Company Creates Coating for Hazardous, Low-Level Radioactive Waste Containers

Carlsbad, CA - Technology Visions Group, Inc. has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its proprietary method of preparation and material composition for coating hazardous and low-level radioactive waste containers.

The company's coating material is prepared using a method of procedures based on the combination of unique container properties, waste content and specific performance requirements.

Thorough testing and evaluation of the company's coating method, which includes container surface preparation, application of a polymer material over the entire surface area and application of an outer protective coating, has demon-strated that the coated container is also able to withstand moderate tension and compressive loads and acid/alkali environments, in addition to providing fire, water and corrosion protection.

The company also announced it is pursing the sale of its Project Services Division (PSD), a unit of IOG. The company's Metal Services Group will continue to operate as a separate division of PSD.
