Innovative Concrete Coatings
After graduate school, I followed my love interest to Cincinnati, OH, where
I responded to an ad for a concrete surface coater. Why not? So, I applied.
The VPs of the concrete ready mix company had set up a subsidiary to cure
freshly poured concrete. The concrete contractors were doing a poor job of
curing, and the ready-mix concrete was getting the bad rep.
The VPs had purchased an expensive low volume, high pressure gasoline powered machine for several thousand dollars. Wrong solution for a big problem. The pressure could not be turned down low enough to avoid the curing compound (watery in density) vaporizing in the wind. Spent a lot of time doing areas in 6" swatches.
Quickly, over one weekend, I constructed a low-pressure, high-volume sprayer from a garden hose, fertilizer nozzlers, 1/4 copper tubing and a 7psi air pump. Cost? Less than $100. With this 6-nozzle, 6-ft spray wand, I could cure a whole concrete drive in less time than it took to get the hose on and off the truck. What had been the weekly goal became a daily or half-day achievement.
My compensation rapidly grew as my modest weekly salary received a bonus of one cent for each square foot. I was soon making more than the VPs! Soon, out of the blue, the Senior VP said I could benefit from an office manager. News to me. I'd not had a problem in providing the accountant with needed paper work nor heard a complaint about bookkeeping problems. Soon, I was looking for a job.
