One-component polyurethane foam sealants TITEBOND has developed a line of one-component polyurethane foam sealants that use less prod- uct to produce a more durable seal. The line of WeatherMaster X-Treme foam sealants includes a multi-purpose foam, a window and door foam, and a fireblock foam. It also includes a heavy-duty dispenser gun and multi-purpose cleaner to remove uncured sealant and keep the gun operable. All three can cure in temperatures from 0 to 100 F; they also achieved GreenGuard Gold Certification.

Circle 6 on inquiry card Installation hanger for vinyl siding GLIDE-LOCK MFG. INC. 's installation hanger for vinyl siding will eliminate buckling, warping and up to category 5 wind blow off. The ASTM-tested hanger snaps into the top course of the siding, right behind the nailing flange, and holds it tight without a nail through the siding itself. The hanger fastens to the wall with a 2.5-in. exterior screw (or Tapcon if siding over masonry), creating six times more attachment contact over standard nails and allows the sid- ing panel to move freely. The hanger also holds the siding away from the substrate Ƈ-in., creating a rain screen with- out having to use furring strips.
