New Products for Masonry Contractors

Hundreds of light- to medium-duty construction tasks — from bonding and sealing to caulking and filling cracks — in almost any substrate can now be done from the same tube of POWERSTICKTM. The new all-purpose high-tack polymer is the first product in the U.S. to offer strong adhesive properties with reliable moisture and solvent-resistance, and can be used on masonry, concrete, tile, wood, metal, plastic and even polystyrene foam board. The non-toxic POWERSTICK comes in seven- and 10-ounce tubes, and a controlled bead can be dispensed with either a caulking gun, at right, or by using a spray top with fingertip control, at left. It reaches a tack-free stage within 15 minutes, cures for bonding in less than 24 hours, and full sealant cure is within five days. For more information, visit www.powers.com or call (914) 235-6300.

Your metal fenders not looking so good due to dents, rust and cracks? Then you want to try the new MinimizerTM Poly fenders. The Minimizer plastic fender is proving that lightweight fenders hold three major advantages over traditional steel or aluminum products. First, the Minimizer is made of molded plastic that won't dent like traditional products. With the total weight being only 15 pounds per axle, there is a significant weight savings per truck and trailer. And the Minimizer keeps rocks and water spray off loads and the back of truck cabs, and keeps tie-down straps and the bottom of the truck free of slush and mud. The Minimizer line has a full range of styles and mounting options, and can be installed in a few hours. For more information, visit www.minimizer.com or call (800) 248-3855.
