It is a building material which will last for years under most trying conditions. It will outlive the steel frame to which it is attached. Every factory, power plant, railway or mine has buildings for which Tran site makes the most serviceable partitions, walls and roofs. Transite never wears out. It will not burn, warp, rot, rust or buckle and is impervious to the great majority of industrial and chemical gases. Transite has been used by many large corporations for en closures of widely varying types. In some cases many acres of Transite have been used on one building. Nor is it only as a ma terial for walls and roofs that Transite is useful. Scores of other uses could be cited. These include boiler casings, arc barriers, paper machine hoods, laboratory fume hoods and other purposes requiring resist ance to fumes, gases or heat. J-M Transite is furnished, either flat or corrugated, in a wide variety of sizes and thick nesses. Though relatively light in weight Transite is surpris ingly strong and rigid. It can be worked with carpenters' tools. Another important advantage of Transite is that it requires no painting or maintenance what ever. In fact exposure to the weather actually strengthens this remarkable material. J-M Service is Widespread Industry and the home are both served in many ways by Johns Manville.
