As our Captain, we decided to celebrate giving him a symbolic present with a nautical theme, thanking him for being our Commander, who always guided our ship into safe harbour.

Wishing all the best for your birthday!

CGM Running Team at Milano Marathon 2024

After last year’s success, Running Team CGM took place again at the starting line of the Relay Milano Marathon 2024 on Sunday 7 April, full of enthusiasm and a desire to have fun.

Our acclaimed champions, already authors of last year’s adventure, Anna Mori, Ramona Tiengo and Eugenio Feneri, once again competed in the relay race, joined this year by our new Technical Office Manager Giuseppe Melis, replacing Michele Burei; he temporarily gave up the relay race for this occasion in order to achieve an even more ambitious goal: complete the 42 km route alone!

Obviously, ours achieved their respective goals with their usual stubbornness and tenacity, contemptuous of the fatigue and heat that hindered them: our relay runners finished the race in 5 hours and 6 minutes, while Michele completed the titanic task in 4 hours and 6 minutes.

However, beyond this purely and sporting aspect, CGM has once again committed itself to supporting the charitable initiatives, which characterizes the event. We have decided to renew our commitment to the Dynamo Camp Foundation, which has been dedicated for years to offering specific Recreational Therapy programs free of charge to children and adolescents suffering from chronic illnesses – either in therapy or in the post-hospitalization period – to restore their self-confidence and their abilities, trying at the same time to improve the quality of life of their families.

Having fun does not mean only this: we do not want to forget initiatives aimed at improving our society and, as far as possible, we want to offer our concrete contribution, always aware of the importance of solidarity, especially considering the times we are all living in.

Anyway: once again, congratulations guys! Not only for representing our company in the best possible way, but for once again bringing a smile to people in need. We are all very proud of you!

But now the time for celebration is over: Marathon 2025 is coming up and you cannot be caught unprepared!

Rotvel Avio Stick

Technical datasheet

General description

The Rotvel Avio Stick is a color contrast penetrant for high temperature controls with excellent resolution in detecting surface discontinuity indications. It generates an excellent red color contrast with good penetration characteristics. The penetrant is in the solid state; once in contact with the hot surface, it liquefies and penetrates into the possible discontinuities. For removal it is suggested to use a cloth soaked in Velemulsior H2O. Due to the remarkable penetrant fluidity , the formation of the indications is practically instantaneous after the application of the developer.
