Elmer’s new glue message: Strong without the foam

BY Ken Clark

Columbus, Ohio-based Elmer’s Products has introduced Elmer’s ProBond Advanced adhesive, which is being promoted as a multi-purpose glue that’s as strong as a polyurethane competitor, but without the foamy mess.

“We developed ProBond Advanced in response to demand from consumers,” said Emily von Stein, associate product manager for Elmer’s hardware category. “They’ve told us that they don’t like the messy foam of polyurethane glues, but still need an adhesive that can provide heavy-duty adhesion on nearly any surface. ProBond Advanced satisfies that need and goes a step beyond by not only eliminating the annoying foam mess, but also being easy enough to clean with just water.”

ProBond Advanced works on wood, concrete, metal, glass, ceramics and more. It is 100% weatherproof, making it ideal for both interior and exterior projects. Unlike popular polyurethane glues, ProBond Advanced won’t foam up after it’s dry, thanks to its acrylic formulation. This saves DIYers, contractors and woodworkers the time and hassle of cleaning up their projects and hands after working.

The product comes in 2-, 4- and 8-ounce bottles at suggested retail price points of $4.99, $6.50 and $10.99, respectively.

Blind Chalet introduces John Gidding Collection

BY Ken Clark

Who is John Gidding? He’s a TV show host with some ideas about window coverings. 

He recently created a line of window treatments for Mesa, Ariz.-based Blinds Chalet.

"The John Gidding Collection is the result of a very ‘hands on’ collaboration between John and the entire Blinds Chalet Team. What started as a few simple ideas, photographs, sketches and material swatches has evolved into this incredibly unique line of designer shades," said Jayson Ellingson, CEO of Blinds Chalet.

The John Gidding Collection will introduce more than 100 designs in solid colors, printed textures and patterns. Each of these will be available in light filtering roller shades, blackout roller shades, single cellular shades and double cellular shades in both blackout and light filtering, according to the company.
