UGL develops Clear Masonry Waterproofer
United Gilsonite Laboratories developed what it calls the first clear masonry waterproofer.
Scranton, Pa.-based UGL introduced the Drylok Clear Masonry Waterproofer as an alternative coating to traditional pigmented waterproofing systems. According to the company, it is a ideal for waterproofing new and existing construction made of masonry block, pre-cast, poured walls, interior and exterior, and decorative elements, such as split faced block, stone, brick and stucco.
The coating holds back water under pressure, 5 psi, greater than a wall of water 9 feet high, according to UGL. When used on floors, Drylok Clear Masonry Waterproofer will stop water from coming up through the horizontal masonry and can be used prior to applying adhesive and flooring material such as carpet, tile, hardwoods, etc.
A new Lavender hits the market
Peace Tree Farm and Cultivaris introduced Lavender ‘Phenomenal,’ a new intermedia type lavender to the horticulture market.
The companies describe the plant as hardy to Zone 5, with a winter survival and overall performance that surpasses all other hardy lavenders.
“Phenomenal lives up to its name with its dense, bushy habit and spectacular performance,” said Lloyd Traven of Peace Tree Farm. Lloyd, with his wife Candy, discovered ‘Phenomenal’ while propagating thousands of lavenders for Carousel Farm Lavender from an intermedia selection made by Niko Christou. The uniform growth habit makes ‘Phenomenal’ well suited for bench-run production that requires little maintenance after transplanting, according to the company.
