IB RE COATING is more than a
filler and more than a paint.
First, it fills the pores in the roof;
second, it lays the scales and binds them
down with asbestos fibre. Third, it builds up the body
of the roof with a coating of the same sort of material '
from which good roofing is largely made. 1
Thus one application of Fibre Coating renews the life
of the roof and covers it with a weather-resisting shield
which protects it from further deterioration.
Fibre Coating is but one of a line of six Carey Paints -each
designed for some special purpose. There is a par
ticular Carey Paint for composition roofs, for metal roof
ing and siding, ' for heated metal, surfaces, for protecting
machinery, creosoting posts, etc.-
