New Product Stops Hull Leaks, Promotes Environmental Safety

Friday, September 03, 1999
21st Century Technologies Inc. has announced that a new product, the Sea Patch, has completed extensive testing by a major oil company. This system, patented by Los Alamos National Laboratory, utilizes a magnet technology designed to stop leaks in hulls of ships, promoting environmental responsibility in the maritime industry. After weeks of extensive testing, the sea patch has outperformed all previous expectations. It was tested against a variety of surfaces, including scale, welds and uneven plates. With each purchase of a sea patch, an aluminum sealed carrying case will be provided to prevent any possible long-term UV degradation of gasket material. Trident Technologies Corp. will be attending the Chemical Emergency Preparedness and Prevention Conference Sept. 20-23 at the Hilton Washington Towers in Washington, D.C., and the Maritime Legislation, Regulation and Policy Conference Sept. 22-23 at the Washington Marriott Hotel. 21st Century Technologies will be handing out its brochures and educating the maritime officials on the benefits of its product regarding environmental safety. Environmental leaks are a huge concern of the EPA and 21st Century Technologies, and the company has designed this product with this in mind. "We are sure that with all of this exciting news as well as the overwhelming positive response from the shipping industry, that we have great things to come," stated chairman Ken Wilson.
