Founded in 1959, Abatron, Inc., specializes in the research, formulation, and manufacture of epoxy and related compounds. Abatron, Inc.’s business initially served the OEM market with compounds for electronics, adhesives, coatings, composites, molds, and castings. In the early 1980’s the company expanded and began to fill the demand for high-quality building restoration products. During this period the company introduced LiquidWood® and WoodEpox® for wood restoration, ABOCRETE™, Aboweld™ 55-1, and Abojet™ for concrete restoration, and Metalfix™, Bronzeweld™, and Ferrobond™ for metal restoration. Early on these products were specified for architectural restoration and sold exclusively to contractors for installation. Soon thereafter, the high demand for these products made it necessary to facilitate direct sales to end-users. A network of retailers was also established for our wood repair products.
American Building Restoration Products, Inc. was founded in 1970 in Franklin, Wisconsin.

The company is still owned and operated by its founders, Jack and Sandra. ABR Products, Inc. offers an extensive line of specialty products including environmentally friendly paint removers, wood stripping products, wood finishes, graffiti removers and barriers, concrete sealers and masonry restoration products.
More than anything else, Frank Sliney is a problem solver. From his early introduction to the screen Printing industry at trade shows, and in the normal course of building a business, Frank realized that the existing chemistry used by screen printers was not only unhealthy and unsafe, it was not good for our environment. Frank’s awareness of soy’s ability to replace the highly toxic and expensive petrochemicals used by screen printers gave him the vision of providing a safer, more economical workplace. With the assistance and support of his wife, Marilyn, the couple started down a path of chemistry and innovation, seeking natural products that could do the job safely and affordably. The implementation of their vision proved that safe cleaning with natural products was possible and their actions have helped fuel a change – for the better – to cleaning techniques and philosophies throughout the world.
The first soy based product Frank formulated, BEAN-e-doo®, replaced the use of mineral spirits, xylene, toluene, even gasoline, in screen printing cleaning operations. As all screen printers will tell you, it was an amazing innovation. BEAN-e-doo® was born! And from that exciting first innovation, product after product, supporting industry after industry, has emerged. Throughout all of the innovations, all of the research and development, Frank and Marilyn have guided Franmar’s growth with this simple principle: provide an efficient product that is economical to purchase, and safe to use. Today, many call this “Green.” At Franmar we refer to it as doing the right thing!
