Metallic coating of building materials may be grouped under five heads : (1)Electrical deposition of spelter and nickelling, chiefly on iron sheets and on small structural members and accessories; (2) plating with thin sheets; (3) gilding or silvering; (4) painting with certain kinds of metals reduced to powder and held in suspension in a fatty or spirituous medium, as in aluminium painting, and the whole range of processes known as “ bronzing. ” A development of this last is (5) the spraying of metal powders or vapours.

Concrete Block Building

Concrete Block Building

THIS subject is of particular importance in these times of shortage of bricks and skilled labour, since concrete block building provides a simple means of obtaining a really satisfactory substitute for the older methods, and offers a solution to the present difficulties. Major W.H. Smith

Aluminious Cement ("Ciment Fondu") Pure or Mixed (Sand Cement)

Aluminious Cement ("Ciment Fondu") Pure or Mixed (Sand Cement)

SINCE the year 1920 the Compagnie de la Fonte électrique, at Bex, has been manufacturing an aluminous cement, which it has placed on the market under the name of Electro-Cement. This article, produced in accordance with the formulae of the French chemist Bied, has been subjected in Switzerland to various interesting uses, advantage being taken of its rapid and high mechanical resistance, with two or three days’ hardening, and its chemical unalterability in the presence of selenitic waters.
