This letter confirms that your products have been used in various trials to treat asbestos sheeting in several telecom installations.
The treatment has been in service for several months and has proven to be satisfactory over this period.
It is proposed to use your product on appropriate future projects.
I am writing to let you know that we are delighted with the success we have achieved using one of your products.
We have applied the Binder to asbestos sheeting, lagging and fiberglass insulation, with excellent results. Our painters are very happy with the products applicability.
It is our intention to continue a program of asbestos abatement and containment, utilizing this highly satisfactory product.

I have to admit that after you treated our roof the temperature inside the house is considerably lower and most times very cool and as I jokingly say I need a central heater, but now this has made all the difference.

Re: Work performed at the above address
This is a short note to comment about your workmen and your product.
Our ridgecapping was quite rusted and was replaced. This job was done quite speedily and my husband (who was asleep at the time) assured me that it did not disturb his sleep pattern. No mess was left to even indicate that this job had been completed.
The workmen that did the sealing and paintwork, also worked very studiously and completed the job in a clean/tidy and true workman like way. They were also aware of the surroundings around them and requested the moving of certain vehicles so that these would not sustain any damage. Once again no mess was left.
I will have no hesitation in recommending your product or workmen, to anyone who may either call upon me or make comment about my roofing.
It is with great pleasure that I write to offer my earliest congratulations on an excellent product. The roof is now everything I could have wished.
Your team of workmen were unfailingly prompt, polite and efficient. I have no hesitation in recommending your product, and have in fact already done so.
Thankyou from a satisfied customer.

It’s my pleasure to write to you regarding the SSC roof treatment carried out by your firm on my property at 12 Hill Street, Lambton. The roof, which is corrugated asbestos sheeting, is generally sound, but was quite old and dirty. This has been a concern to me for some time, but the problems of working with asbestos, the desire to minimise disruptions to my tenants, etc, had caused me to put off work on the roof.
Your display at Woolworth’s Jesmond store at the end of March took my interest because it offered basically the solution I required and it presented the coating well enough to effectively show the finished product.
Prior to giving me the quote, I received a presentation of your company’s credentials, previous work, your plans and intentions. This was quite good, because it answered (with documents) most of the questions I would have wanted to ask and a few I probably wouldn’t have realised. I was sufficiently comfortable with your Company and the quote to sign on the spot. I hadn’t even fully considered colours at that time but the range provided to be quite satisfactory.
You’ll no doubt recall we had some rotten weather, so I was delighted to hear that you’d completed the work so promptly. I am more than happy with the final result. The house can be easily viewed from the street and the final work speaks for itself. I’d like to speak for your firm and say that my experience with you has been a good one. I received only genuine, helpful and unintrusive assistance and advice and you delivered the goods in excellent time.
Anyone contemplating similar work would do well to have you at the top of their shopping list.
We wish to express our complete satisfaction with your application of coating system at our premises.
Our work within the confines of a steel garage is a real test of your product. After the application of the INSULATION PAINT SYSTEM, the inside temperature of our offices has been considerable lowered.
We thank you for your fast and efficient service and will not hesitate to recommend both you and your product to any of our clients.
We would like you to quote on John Curtin High School in Fremantle at your earliest convenience with a view of using the Durashield system only.
I am pleased with the test work carried out thus far, our advice is that your company is one that is able to comply with the strict health and safety requirements.
I would be interested in arranging for a further viewing of your video and will arrange for people from other ministry departments to attend. I shall make a quick phone call to confirm times and advise you accordingly.

Recently your company treated my tile roof which I am very happy to say when finished turned out extremely good in fact better than I anticipated.
I would like to commend your workmen also as nothing that I asked of them was too much trouble and they went about their task in a very tradesman like fashion.
You can use my home as a sample of your product it you wish.

Re: 580K Roof Paint Static Temperature Test
A survey was done at Morce in which we registered the temperature in cabin before the roof was painted.
Roof temperature for period 12.00pm to 1.30pm
Outside temperature started at 42° in sun
Inside Cabin temperature started between 40° – 50° with all windows closed.
After painting roof temperature in cab dropped to 36° without opening the door. This made a great improvement in the operation of the air conditioner, as soon as you start it cold air instead of hot air circulated.
Thank you for your sample of this product and we hope to be using this frequently.

It is now over three years since we had our fibro roof coated with you product. Looking at our contract, ours was one of the first jobs done (JOB013). After three years, the roof still looks freshly done. Quite a few people have asked us when we had our new roof put on.
Before having the coating done, we were very concerned about many leaks in the fibro. The hassle of having a fibro roof removed were many. It would also have been very expensive even if we could have found a person to do it.
We had read of Roof Coatings in the Sunday paper so decided to make some enquiries regarding it. We are so glad that we did. The job was completed 8.8.91 and we are very happy with its appearance. Also, the interior of our home is very much cooler and most important there are now no leaks.
We can honestly recommend your product to anyone considering what to do about their fibro roof. Our back verandah has a zinc roof and the coating on that is also making it much cooler as there is no ceiling.
Thank you for a great product.
Jean and Jim Carrigan
It was good to see you at the Show and to let you know how pleased we are with our roof.
We found that our house is much cooler during the hot summer months. We did not need to use a fan even in the hottest parts of the day, and there certainly have been no leaks during the recent rainy weather.
Our neighbours have commented favorably and we have been happy to tell them about your company.
Hope you are adding a lot more happy customers to your list.
With best wishes,
I have found them to be an efficient company that carries out all work with quality products at a cost effective rate.
The products are more than satisfactory and satisfy every requirement of our department.
Having proven the product’s viability in the successful application to some six hundred state housing properties over a period of years there is no doubt I will be asking them to carry out further work in the future.

As you are aware we had our roof treated with your system in February 1992. Shortly after the work had been done we indicated to you how pleased we were with the professional manner in which the application was made and also how we noticed within a day or two the remarkable difference to the inside temperatures of the house.
We just wanted you to know that we are still absolutely delighted with your system.
We had been contemplating air conditioning the house, but having gone through the tail end of one of the hottest summers and through a fairly mild winter we have completely abandoned that idea.
Your systems continue to work extremely well and we would have no hesitation in recommending it in a totally unqualified sense.
We wish you well in the future.
Durashield Protection Coatings Ind on 24/4/86
Tank water after roof was coated with binder. First filling (after coating) was dark coloured. Roof and tank cleaned and emptied and second filling was still coloured and “smelly”. Mr Brown submitted a sample of this water to Durashield.
pH : 5.7
Appearance : very slightly cloudy with a grey deposit
Colour TC Units : 200
Odour : nil
EC (mS/m @ 25°C): 20 mg/L
Surfactants : less than 0.1
(Methylene Blue active substances as LAS)
The assumption that coating the roof caused discoloured “smelly” rainwater in the tank is not supported by the sample characteristics. Though the water is coloured the applied coating was polar white. Surfactants used as emulsifiers in coatings are commonly non-ionic which do not show in the above surfactants check, but also anionic – these are absent.
There was no smell in the sample as received though at Mr McCormicks office it was thought to have an “off” odour. The very slight sediment contained some cellular material – not from an acrylic coating – of common microorganisms.

We, as you know, operate our offices from an unlined, steel building. The summer heat is often oppressive even though our roof was white.
I am quite amazed at the difference. The coating has made and am somewhat embarrassed with my initial skepticism of your product.
Please do not hesitate to offer us as a referral should you require.

I would like to indicate to you my satisfaction and pleasure it has been in dealing with your company.
The personal service has been exemplary and as a customer your willingness to cooperate with my personal needs in a most competitive market place was most appreciated.
Completion of the roof treatment was finalised in a most professional and workman like manner and has consequently enhanced the aesthetics of my property. I have no hesitation in recommending your company’s product and services.

I recently contracted with Armaseal to have the asbestos roof at my above named property treated with the your insulating product.
From the time of my initial contact with the representatives of the Company to the completion of the application of the product, I found the Company and its representatives most professional in their outlook and service and friendly in their approach.
If a problem arose during the course of the job all it took was a phone call and it was addressed immediately to my satisfaction.
As far as the product itself is concerned, my wife and I are entirely satisfied with the finished product both from a maintenance and safety angle and also the “lift” it has given to the overall look of our house.
I am sure it has added value to our home from a future sale point of view.
I could thoroughly recommend the your Company and its product to anyone considering its application.

I have no trouble in recommending your protective coating. In the weeks preceding our roof being coated we found everyone most helpful in answering all our enquiries and they even suggested to us to make all the enquiries I felt the need to.
I made many phone calls to Consumer Affairs, the Australian Standards Association in Sydney and the CSIRO National Building Technology Centre in Sydney and I found that I could not get any negative feedback from any of the enquiries that I made.
While working on site the men were all introduced, were all courteous and helpful. They left the site tidy and were always prompt in turning up at appointed times. As far as the finished job is concerned we are extremely pleased at the appearance of our house.
It has improved 100% and we are getting feedback already from friends who all agree the improvement of the appearance of the old asbestos roof is wonderful.
As supplied weathered corrugated AC Sheeting treated with Fungirid fungicide and coated with Acrylic Binder as supplied.
