Innovative Masonry Cleaner Strips Away Surface Grime

Cathedral Stone Products, Inc.
Hanover, Md.

Dust, dirt and grime can be easily removed from brick, stone and other masonry surfaces — without scrubbing — using an innovative “strip away” latex cleaner from Cathedral Stone Products, Inc. that is also waterless. The new masonRE Latex 20 cleaner applies as a liquid and hardens to a rubbery film. After about 24 hours, the latex film is then simply peeled away, bringing grime with it. Dust and fine particles are trapped and lifted as the film dries.

Hearing Protection for Loud Working Environments
Hearing Protection for Loud Working Environments
ISOLATE by Flare Audio Ltd. is a new, patent-pending ear protector for any professional who works in loud environments. While traditional earplugs rely on absorption to attenuate sound, ISOLATE protectors reflect sound away from the ears and therefore achieve much greater attenuation, as they do not accept sound into the ear canal. They are ideal for industrial workplace environments to replace both in-ear and over-ear alternatives, and help contractors meet their health and safety obligations.
