Untitled (Fred Smith at Raychem Desertclad Tape Trial in Alaska), November 1975. This color slide shows Raychem employee Fred Smith standing in front of a section of pipeline that is wrapped in white Desertclad tape with snowcapped mountains in the background. Smith wears an Alyeska Arctic Wear Parka that was issued to workers on the Trans-Alaska pipeline construction project along with a blue Raychem hardhat and an orange knit face mask.
Desertclad was a product that the Raychem Corporation was testing for coating oil pipelines in desert conditions. The trial was performed in Alaska during the time that Raychem was also working on coating the Trans-Alaska Pipeline.
