Mix It Up With OX Tools’ mix m8

OX Tools
Cranford, N.J.

With its unique “rabbit ear” design, the mix m8 mixing paddle is ideal for mixing small batches. The highly flexible and durable non-porous plastic mixing paddle creates a smooth and consistent mix. The patented mixing system can mix up plaster or other mortar compound including aggregates even with a cordless drill (18v). Working well with both cordless (3/8-inch hex shaft) and corded drills (9/16-inch hex shaft), it is a must-have for jobsites where a cordless drill is the only option.

A new range of Watershed Block uses local materials that celebrate the region of their origin, all produced with the latest in sustainable building materials technology. The Lime White block uses zero cement and offers a bright, glacier-white appearance that emerges from lime and white clay. The Stanford block is inspired by the rich, reddish-brown sandstone beneath the Stanford University campus. The sunrise hue of the Sweetwater Watershed Block comes from the warm, almost peach tone of its predominant crusher fines. More colors are available.

PERM-A-BARRIER Liquid Flashing

GCP Applied Technologies Inc.
Cambridge, Mass.

PERM-A-BARRIER Liquid Flashing
PERM-A-BARRIER Liquid Flashing
PERM-A-BARRIER is an advanced liquid flashing technology created for difficult detail areas and applicator productivity. This fluid-applied flashing protects window and door rough openings from the damaging effects of air and water entry. It creates an air-tight seal equal to traditional sheet-applied flashing and applies and dries at 20 mils, eliminating the need to calculate for water evaporation. PERM-A-BARRIER liquid flashing cures to form a durable, resilient, monolithic and fully bonded elastomeric flashing when applied to existing or new construction.
