New Products for Masonry Contractors

Arnco has introduced QuikGel, a self-sealing polyurethane liner that provides protection from punctures up to 5/16" in diameter and a lighter alternative to Arnco's line of polyurethane flatproofing fill materials. QuikGel is ideal for skid steers, telehandlers and other applications where less weight is needed. The self-sealing polyurethane gel membrane provides constant protection against small punctures, is sufficiently lightweight to allow the tire and vehicle to perform as designed, is centrifugally cast balanced to ensure a smooth ride, and is re-treadable for the best return on investment. For additional information, call (800) 821-4147 or visit www.arnconet.com.
