Save the Glass with New
System from Equalizer
Equalizer Industries in Round Rock, Texas, now offers a scratch removal system that the company says can easily pay for itself after just a couple of scratch removals. The Equalizer system utilizes polishing discs that have a surface consisting of precisely shaped, fine-grade cerium oxide “pyramids.” As the “pyramid” tops wear down, fresh polishing material is continually exposed, resulting in a fast, consistent polish rate with distortion-free results, according to the company.

The Equalizer scratch removal kit contains a 120-volt multi-speed buffing machine, wax pencil for marking scratch location from inside the vehicle, general purpose backup pad, 50 cerium oxide polishing discs in a protective case, bottle of pre-mixed cerium oxide polishing compound, Velcro® backup pad/sponge for final polishing, and a video user guide. All of these components come in a heavy-duty carrying case.

Equalizer also released a new website earlier this year, which it says is packed with new features and information, and has been re-designed over the last year based on input from visitors from all over the world. “We really took this design to the next level,” says Equalizer president Eric Asbery. “What we were striving for was more simplicity and ease of use while keeping the same great presence we’ve had on the web for so many years now. I think we accomplished just that.” ❙❙➤ www.equalizer.com

Hangin’ Tough
with Tuff-n-Lite
Textile Research and Development Co., a division of the Supreme Corp. in Conover, N.C., has developed Tuffn- Lite, a material designed to protect technicians from injury from handling glass. The company says the new cut, slash and abrasion protective material is stronger than steel, but provides the comfort and flexibility of cotton.

“ T h r o u g h
many years of research, we’ve developed a groundbreaking product for the glass industry,” says owner Nat Kolmes. “Not only does Tuff-n- Lite outperform the cut and slash resistance of the commonly used aramid material, it’s comfortable and cool to wear.”

In addition, company officials say Tuff-n-Lite is not affected by ultraviolet light and can be washed, bleached and disinfected without harm.

The company offers gloves, a jacket and sleeves in the material. ❙❙➤ www.tuffnlite.com
