New Products

Carefree Tire
South Gate, Calif.

Carefree Tire is the world's first flat-free wheelbarrow tire. This product is constructed with thousands of microscopic air cells trapped in a matrix of incredibly tough polymer elastomer. The result is a tire that never goes flat. Nails, glass or any sharp puncturing instruments are no problem for this revolutionary product. It is also amazingly lightweight, significantly easier to roll than ordinary hard rubber tires, and lasts at least four to ten times longer than pneumatic tires. The tire comes in two diameters to fit most standard wheelbarrows, and is available as original value-added equipment on certain models of wheelbarrows. For more information, call toll-free (877) 352-8776 or visit www.carefreetire.com.

Mill Direct Lumber supplies GripStrip Scaffold Plank, a high quality scaffold plank with stricter tolerances than DI65 supplied by other manufactures. All planks are proof-loaded per ANSI specifications. Planks have Gripstrips® on both sides of the plank to help eliminate slippery surfaces, thus providing a far safer scaffold plank. Advanced performance water sealer is applied to plank ends to promote longevity. Plank sides are continuously-branded permanently with your name, "OSHA" and the date of production. Planks are hydraulically pinned and have precision mitered corners to add significant life to the ends of the planks.

Dow Corning
Midland, Mich.

Dow Corning's 756 SMS Building Sealant is formulated to reduce fluid migration, a common cause of staining of sensitive substrates like porous stone or masonry. Patent-pending surface-modified sealant (SMS) technology gives the cured sealant a low-friction surface that minimizes dirt pick-up, solving the problem of contaminants accumulating on the sealant and washing from the joint onto the substrate below. The all-new SMS technology gives building owners both improved aesthetics and long-lasting performance in a single product. The sealant provides the long-life durability and flexibility inherent to silicones. The 756 SMS Sealant is available in six standard colors and can be custom pigmented to match virtually any design requirement. For more information, visit www.dowcorning.com/construction or call (800) 248-2481.
