The Mica Insulator company of New York, Chicago and London is now putting on the market the Empire brand of oiled cloths and papers, in rolls of 50, 100 and 500 yards' length. It is also prepared to furnish, it in any length desired. A new and original process enables the manufacturer to coat the material with two very evenly distributed coats of pure linseed oil. Experience has proven, it is said, that pure linseed oil, refined and treated by the M. I. C. process is superior as a coating for cloths and papers to any linseed-oil. substitutes, which sometimes contain adulterations and are likely to harden and crack. It is asserted that Empire cloth will retain its high finish and rubber-like flexibility indefinitely, and may be kept in stock a long time without any deterioration, either mechanically or electrically. It is thoroughly dried before leaving the factory, and does not need any wax paper between the sheets to prevent them from sticking together. The manufacturer will be pleased to furnish samples, circulars and prices to any who may be interested.
