Fontana Paper Mills Adds a New Product to The Family

FONTANA, Calif. -- Fontana Paper Mills is proud to announce a new 6% + SBS modified multipurpose underlayment, otherwise known as M40. It has an organic core with a 6% + SBS modified asphalt coating and Fontana's familiar high grip surface.

M40 is similar to our G40 but has the advantage of availability, price, enhanced flexibility while preserving the weather-ability, and extended life of a modified asphalt. M40 carries the Fontana Premium Leak warranty when applied in accordance with the enhanced provisions of the TRI moderate climate specifications by a TRI certified roofing contractor.

"M40 is a special product because Fontana is able to control the quality of the asphalt viscosity and the melting point. By controlling all aspects of M40's manufacturing process M40 is more flexible. A more flexible product makes the roofers job easier. Roofers have found they have less product break while installing M40 and it does cold bends very well," stated George Thagard, President of Fontana Paper Mills.

"M40 also has increased longevity because it is not as sensitive to UV as other underlayments are; thus it doesn't break down as quickly. M40 also has superior nail sealing ability which will decrease the risk of roof leakage due to installation."

M40 is also a more affordable product. Fontana, as a manufacturer, is able to keep the costs low while maintaining their high quality underlayment standards, which makes the product more affordable for the roofer.

About Fontana Paper Mills:

Fontana Paper Mills is a roofing underlayment manufacturing plant located on 15 acres in Fontana, California. It was started by George Thagard III, Jeff Thagard and Ray Thagard Jr. in 1987. Fontana produces well known products such as Vulca Seal G40, Vulca Seal Organic base 40#, 30# and many others. Their newest member of the product family is Vulca Seal M40.

Move For Hunger and Chadwell Supply Renew Their Partnership and Provide 200,000 Meals to Those In Need

RED BANK, N.J. -- Chadwell Supply, a trusted Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO) source of supplies and flooring for multi-family properties, and Move For Hunger, a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced the renewing of their partnership and commitment to the fight against hunger.

This is the second year of partnership that has helped provide nearly 200,000 meals to those in need. In addition, Chadwell Supply also recently hosted its own food drive at seven of its locations across the country in Virginia, Texas, North Carolina, Missouri, and Florida to support their efforts to fight hunger and food waste. Each of the locations' food was transported to a food bank in the local area.

Hunger impacts every community and every state. Forty-two million Americans, including 1 in 6 kids, struggle with food insecurity, an increase of 5 million people since the start of the pandemic.

Move For Hunger has the unique ability to coordinate nationwide food drives and food rescues through its network of 1,000+ movers and transportation partners in all 50 states and in Canada. Since 2009, Move For Hunger's network has transported more than 24 million pounds of food - the equivalent of 20 million meals. It's through the support of partners like Chadwell Supply that Move For Hunger can continue to expand its impact by launching a new fresh food program.

The program focuses on recovering fresh produce, meat, and more from farms and food manufacturers and then deliver it to local food banks. In its first season, the fresh food program has delivered 400,000 meals.

Move For Hunger also continues to expand its reach in the multi-family industry partnering with over 2,500 properties nationwide. Properties collect unused, perfectly good food when residents move out and also host community food drives to support their neighbors in need. Move For Hunger's multi-family network is having a record year by already collecting more than 100,000 pounds of food (83,000 meals).

"Chadwell Supply is proud to support the important role our customer companies serve in the lives of their resident families," says Pete Wheeler, VP of Marketing and Sales Enablement. "The multi-family industry is in a unique position to reach struggling families, literally where they live. Move For Hunger is a very special representation of the true heart of this industry and we could not be more excited to be partners in their important mission."

"We are so grateful for the support of Chadwell Supply," says Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "They've been helpful in big ways and small including sponsoring our Hunger Action Month webinar last month where we showcased our collective impact the multi-family industry has had on fighting hunger. This is a relationship in its second year that will only get stronger."

About Move For Hunger

Move For Hunger is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger. We have mobilized the leaders of moving, relocation, and multi-family industries to provide their customers, clients, and residents with the opportunity to donate their food when they move. Members of Move For Hunger also organize community food drives, participate in awareness campaigns, and create employee engagement programs.

Capital Industrial Shares the Benefits of Sealing Concrete Floors

MATTITUCK, N.Y. -- Capital Industries, a leader in industrial concrete repair products, has released a tip sheet on how concrete floor coatings benefit commercial businesses.

Repore urethane concrete sealer is a one-step system made up of moisture-cured urethane. It is typically applied to the surface of concrete floors to create a moisture, chemical, and abrasion-resistant coating for your flooring. This product provides various benefits that make it one of the most beneficial things property owners can utilize on their floors.

The benefits of sealing concrete floors are plentiful and can help industrial businesses in the long run. Here are four reasons why it is beneficial to seal concrete floors in industrial buildings.

1. Sealing concrete floors in industrial buildings can protect them from harsh chemicals and cleaners.

Sealing concrete floors in industrial buildings can help to protect them from harsh chemicals and cleaners. Applying a sealant is very important because the lifespan of a non-sealed floor can shorten the lifespan by the chemical used.

Repore floor sealant is also popular for sealing warehouse floors, factory floors, and even commercial kitchen floors. It can be a much more cost-effective solution than digging up the floor and replacing it with something else. A recent study has shown that the average cost of replacing a floor is around $10,000, whereas sealing the floor is much less. Companies should consider these benefits before deciding whether to seal the floors.

2. Help the floor last longer to increase its lifespan.

Sealing a concrete floor improves durability by protecting it from cracks and stains. The most common type of sealer used is called a urethane sealer. These sealers offer moderate protection against staining and wear.

3. Improve the safety of working conditions for employees in the industrial building.

Concrete is a building material that, if left unsealed, can cause major slip hazards for workers. The spills created are also a safety hazard because they create a slip hazard as well. However, sealing the concrete floor will reduce the risks for workers.

Seal concrete floors at any point after pouring them. It helps keep the concrete from becoming slippery and spilling onto the floor, creating more hazards for employees.

4. Reduce the costs associated with repairs and maintenance.

Concrete floors can easily get damaged when they are not maintained properly. The cracks and chips in the surface will make the floor uneven, increasing the risk of falls.

Commercial concrete floor sealer can help to reduce costs by increasing its lifespan, making it more durable and easier to clean.

It also helps to avoid any damage caused by spills and other incidents. Concrete sealing also helps to save energy, as you will not need powerful cleaning equipment or boiling water that may cause damage to your floor.

* The sealer protects against stains and scratches by filling in imperfections on the surface

* The sealer makes it easier to clean up because dirt particles do not get embedded in the surface

* It can also act as an additional protective layer

Capital Industries is the best place to find industrial concrete floor sealers. We have a one-step floor sealer to suit any size of business at an affordable price. Our floor sealer is a single component moisture-cured urethane, clear coating and cure time, provides a convenient solution to the need for high-performance floor coating.

Contact our team today at (631) 298-6300 to learn more about purchasing high-quality, affordable industrial concrete floor sealers for your business. If interested in a long-lasting product that is resistant to wear and tear, contact us to learn more about sealing concrete floors.

Assessing Lightning’s Potential for Catastrophic Risk is Key for Building Lightning Safe Communities

FORT PIERCE, Fla. -- Those familiar with New York's "Darkest Hours" likely remember the mayhem of the city's July 13, 1977 blackout. But few may be able to recall it was lightning (three sequential strikes), which caused the catastrophic event that shut down one of the world's largest cities in a matter of minutes, says DEHN, Inc.

"A single lightning event can have enormous consequences in terms of safety, damaged equipment, loss of vital data and operational breakdowns," said Mark Hendricks, vice president and technical director at DEHN, Inc. "Unfortunately, too many industries, businesses and property owners find out the hard way that lightning protection is an essential measure for safety and building resilience."

According to the National Lightning Safety Council, a typical lightning strike is about 300 million volts and can heat the air to 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit-five times hotter than the surface of the sun. Compared to a household electrical current of 120 volts and 115 amps, lightning's extreme electricity packs a massive punch, which can have devastating results to unprotected structures.

As the global market leader for lightning protection, grounding and surge solutions, DEHN, Inc. is supporting International Lightning Safety Day (ILSD21) and its Building Lightning Safe Communities initiative by providing solutions to protect lives, property and material assets from a leading weather threat. The company's track record in total lightning protection solutions includes a dedicated research and development department, more than 4,000 tested LPS products and a worldwide network of 1,900 employees in over 70 countries-including the U.S.

"Effective protection against lightning-internal and external, direct and indirect surges can be provided by safety standard compliant lightning protection systems," explained Hendricks.

Both international lightning protection system guidelines of IEC 62305 and U.S. safety standards of NFPA 780 require grounding, bonding and surge protection to address total solution protection. Unfortunately, building codes set minimum standards which may not take lightning into account, which is why DEHN provides a comprehensive Lightning Risk Assessment as a mitigation tool for calculating a structure's potential for exposure.

Capital Industries Offers Solution for Cracks in Concrete Flooring

MATTITUCK, N.Y. -- Capital Industries, a leading supplier of industrial concrete repair products, is proud to offer a solution for concrete cracks in industrial flooring. Concrete is a durable material, making it ideal for industrial flooring, particularly in warehouses, factories, distribution centers, and beyond, where floors tend to experience a significant amount of wear and tear. Over time, this wear and tear can lead to holes and cracks in the concrete. Capital Industries highlights the benefits of their KwikBond cement crack filler. This product helps businesses maintain and repair their industrial cement flooring, providing an effective, sustainable solution to a common problem.

What Is KwikBond?

KwikBond is a 100% resin polyester compound used to fix concrete cracks. Capital Industries created KwikBond to understand that concrete flooring is used in buildings that house various industries and that different industries are bound by different health and safety codes. For this reason, KwikBond is USDA-approved for federally inspected meat and poultry plants and is safe for use in virtually any other industry's building.

1. There Are Several Causes of Cracks in Concrete

Cracks in concrete are often caused by voids in the soil underneath the concrete. They are also usually caused by temperature fluctuations, such as when heat causes the concrete to expand to the point of cracking. Freezing temperatures cause concrete to become rigid that impacts its strength. As the water in the concrete evaporates, cracks also form. Poorly done concrete jobs have a higher likelihood of resulting in cracks.

2. It Is Essential to Fix Cracks in Concrete Flooring

Even if a crack in concrete flooring doesn't seem too large, under the surface, the concrete's integrity reduces, and other benefits like its water resistance and durability are compromised. If left untouched and not fixed, even minor cracks have the potential to escalate into a larger, much more expensive, and time-consuming problem in the future. Once a concrete crack is repaired, the concrete's strength will improve, excess liquids won't be able to leach into the concrete, durability improves, prevent corrosion, and the floor looks better safer to walk on.

The advantages are clear, particularly when compared to the risk of not doing any repairs.

KwikBond Offers a Fast, Affordable Solution to Cracks in Industrial Concrete

KwikBond provides a secure, quick set to any concrete finish at any temperature. This USDA-approved cement crack filler is a 100 percent solid polyester resin-based product that is pre-mixed. KwikBond is resilient to corrosion and moisture, and it will not shrink, allowing for a long-lasting concrete repair.

"We are proud to put all the tools to make the most of concrete industrial flooring in our customers' hands," said Len Garrett, GM of Capital Industries. "We are experts in repairing concrete flooring, and we encourage you to reach out to us at any time for all your concrete flooring needs and with any questions."
