The Rapid RH® L6 concrete RH testing system from Wagner Meters improves upon the already popular 4.0EX system with more digital functionality for an easier, faster and more reliable ASTM F2170 test method.
Compact, efficient and powerful, the new US Hammer GB-70 is easy to transport from job to job. With 64 pounds of impact force, it delivers the same power-to-weight ratio as many pneumatic and hydraulic breakers.
Tenax’s Fixtop Epoxy Adhesive is a true, 100%, two-part epoxy glue, which isn’t water-based. Perfect for use with tile, super strong and very easy to mix and spread, Fixtop is suitable for gluing and bonding ceramic, porcelain, natural stone, as well as hardwood, cement board, laminate and plywood.
The new Schluter®-App puts all the necessary Schluter resources for planning a tile project in one place — on any iPhone or Android mobile device. Information on all of Schluter’s systems can be found on the app.
Sika Corporation recently introduced SikaTack® Panel-50, a one-component neutral curing silicone, which combines mechanical strength with excellent elasticity. This product is ideally suited for use in structural joints in ventilated facades between the vertically installed substructure and the facade panels.
The Delta Tile Leveling System is ideal for laying large-format ceramic tiles using the back-buttering technique. This new Rubi innovation prevents the movement of parts when the adhesive is setting and improves the resulting surface flatness.
The Prova Pan-Multi from Prova Products is one pan and one solution with multiple uses. The pan accommodates the most common shower sizes, can be cut down to any desired size by following the molded gridlines and can be used for curbed or curbless installations.
Prodeso Heat Grip System from Progress Profiles is the ultimate revolutionary electrical heating system for floors and coverings that provides warmth only where desired in a few minutes, and is a cost-effective, time- and energy-saving solution.
