I
TEM 2 - MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION
AND RESULTS OF OPERATION

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

GENERAL - The Company conducts all foreign transactions based on the U.S.
dollar, except for its investments in foreign joint ventures. The exchange rate
differential relating to investments in foreign joint ventures is accounted for
under the requirements of SFAS No. 52.

SALES - Net sales increased by $485,642 or 30% during the second quarter of 1997
from those of the second quarter of 1996. Net sales increased by $788,457 or 24%
during the six months ended February 28, 1997 compared to the six months ended
February 29, 1996. These changes in sales are due to the volume of corrosion
inhibiting products sold to existing or new customers. There has been no change
in product pricing, introduction of new products, or entry into any particular
new markets.

COST OF SALES - Cost of goods sold as a percentage of net sales for the second
quarter of 1997 was 46% compared to 48% for the second quarter of 1996. The cost
of goods sold percentage of net sales was 47% for the six months ended February
28, 1997 and February 29, 1996. Variations are due primarily to the mix of
product sales.

OPERATING EXPENSES - As a percentage of net sales, total operating expenses
increased from 31% in the second quarter of fiscal 1996 to 38% in the second
quarter of fiscal 1997. Operating expenses were 41% of net sales for the six
months ended February 28, 1997 and 34% for the six months ended February 29,
1996.

</TABLE>


Selling expenses increased during the second quarter of fiscal 1997 as compared
to the same period in fiscal 1996 due to increase in staff salaries, distributor
commissions, and travel. These same factors account for the increase in the
selling expense for the six months ended February 28, 1997 over the same period
in fiscal 1996. Selling expenses as a percentage of net sales increased for the
quarter and six months ended February 28, 1997 as compared to the same period in
fiscal 1996 due to the increased level of net sales in fiscal 1997 not fully
offsetting the effect of increased fiscal 1997 selling expenses.

General and administrative expenses increased during the second quarter of
fiscal 1997 as compared to the same period in fiscal 1996 due to increases in
salary expense, travel, and real estate taxes and other expenses associated with
the Company's expanded warehouse facility completed in December 1996. These same
factors account for the increase in the general and administrative expenses for
the six months ended February 28, 1997 over the same period in fiscal 1996.
General and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales increased for
the quarter and six months ended February 28, 1997 as compared to the same
period in fiscal 1996 due to the increased level of net sales in fiscal 1997 not
fully offsetting the effect of increased fiscal 1997 general and administrative
expenses.

Research, engineering, and technical support expenses increased during the
second quarter of fiscal 1997 as compared to the same period in fiscal 1996 due
primarily to increases in staff salaries and travel. These same factors account
for the increase in research, engineering, and technical support expenses for
the six months ended February 28, 1997 over the same period in fiscal 1996. Such
expenses, as a percentage of sales were largely unchanged for the three and six
month periods ended February 28, 1997 as compared to fiscal 1996 periods.

JOINT VENTURES AND FOREIGN COMPANY - Net earnings from corporate joint ventures
and foreign company were $467,837 and $1,013,464 for the three and six months
ended February 28, 1997, respectively, compared to $280,522 and $607,061 for the
three and the six months ended February 29, 1996. This net increase reflects
increased sales volume at the Company's corporate joint ventures and reduced
travel and legal expense incurred by the Company in its support of existing and
new corporate joint ventures.

INCOME TAXES - Income tax expense for the three and six months ended February
28, 1997 and February 29, 1996 was calculated based on management's estimate of
the Company's annual effective income tax rate. The Company's effective income
tax rate for fiscal 1997 and 1996 is lower than the statutory rate primarily due
to the Company's equity in income of corporate joint ventures and foreign
company being recognized based on after tax earnings of these entities. To the
extent joint venture's undistributed earnings are distributed to the Company, it
does not result in any material additional income tax liability after the
application of foreign tax credits.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At February 28, 1997, the Company's working capital was $5,034,130, including
$3,052,595 in cash and cash equivalents, compared to working capital of
$5,284,403 and $4,955,821 as of August 31, 1996 and February 29, 1996,
respectively.

Net cash provided from operations has been sufficient to meet liquidity
requirements, capital expenditures, research and development cost, and expansion
of operations of the Company's joint ventures. Cash flows from operations for
the six months ended February 28, 1997 and February 29, 1996 was $536,752 and
$627,563, respectively. The net cash flow from operations for the six months
ended February 28, 1997 and February 29, 1996 resulted principally from net
income and joint venture dividends offset by equity income of joint ventures and
increased trade receivables. During the six months ended February 28, 1997, the
net cash flow from operations was further reduced by payments on income tax
liabilities.

Net cash used in investing activities for the six months ended February 28, 1997
was $689,572 which resulted from investments in joint ventures and European
holding company, additions to property, and trading investment. Net cash
provided by investing activities for the six months ended February 29, 1996 was
$373,747 of which $743,875 related to the payments received on notes receivable
offset by additions to property of $370,128.

Net cash used in financing activities for the six months ended February 28, 1997
was $502,105 which resulted from the payment of dividends to stockholders of
$504,733 and the repurchase of common stock of $24,600 offset by proceeds from
the exercise of stock options of $27,228. Net cash used in financing activities
for the six months ended February 29, 1996 resulted from the payment of
dividends to stockholders of $424,877 and the repurchase of common stock of
$70,875 offset by proceeds of $12,250 from the exercise of stock options.

The Company expects to meet future liquidity requirements with its existing cash
and cash equivalents and from cash flows of future operating earnings and
distributions of earnings and technical assistance fees from the corporate joint
venture investments.

The Company has no long-term debt and no material lease commitments at February
28, 1997.

The Company has no postretirement benefit plan and does not anticipate
establishing any postretirement benefit program.

RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARD

In October 1995, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued SFAS No.
123, ACCOUNTING FOR STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION. SFAS No. 123 encourages companies
to adopt a new accounting method that accounts for stock compensation awards
based on their estimated fair value at the date they are granted. However,
companies are permitted to continue following current accounting requirements
for employee stock-based transactions, which generally do not result in an
expense charge for most options if the exercise price is at least equal to the
fair market value of the stock at the date of grant. Companies that continue to
follow existing standards would be required to disclose in a note to the
financial statements the effect on net income and net income per share had the
Company recognized expense for options issued to employees based on SFAS No.
123. SFAS No. 123 is effect for the Company's fiscal year ending August 31, 1997
and will require disclosure information in those financial statements about
stock options granted in fiscal 1996 and thereafter. The Company has determined
that it will not adopt the fair value method prescribed by SFAS No. 123 for
employee stock-based transactions. The "as if" disclosures will be included in
the Company's annual financial statements for the year ending August 31, 1997.

In February 1997, the FASB issued SFAS No. 128, EARNINGS PER SHARE, which is
effective for interim and annual reporting periods ending after December 15,
1997. The implementation of SFAS No. 128 is expected to increase earnings per
share by an immaterial amount.

SFAS No. 128 supersedes Accounting Principles Board Opinion No. 15, EARNINGS PER
SHARE, and replaces the presentation of primary earning per share with a
presentation of basic earnings per share. It also requires dual presentation for
all entities with complex capital structures and provides guidance on other
computational changes.
