| CARBOZINC 11 SG HAS BEEN DETERMINED TO HAVE A REPORTABLE DEFECT.            
|
|                                                                              |
| Carboline has been notified of stability problems with some Carbozinc 11 SG  |
| product over the last year.  The material is exhibiting premature gellation  |
| or thickening prior to the end of the published shelf life expiration date.  |
| Carbozinc 11 SG that is gelled or exhibiting significant thickening will not |
| atomize or spray properly, resulting in poor adhesion to the substrate.      |
| When this occurs the coating cracks during the spray process and the coating |
| process and the coating flakes off the substrate.                            |
|                                                                              |
| On December 14, 2001, Carboline will send by register mail to all purchasers |
| of Carbozinc 11 SG reporting Part 21 Reporting of Defect.                    |
|                                                                              |
