The Loctite 5510 Adhesive/Sealant is a permanently elastic, primerless formulation that is able to bond and seal a variety of dissimilar substrates, including metals, glass, nylon and plastics. The single-component, oderless adhesive is free of solvents, isocyanates, PVC or silicones. It bonds and seals simultaneously, skinning over relatively quickly and cures to a tack-free surface in 24 hours. Able to fill gaps, resist weather and moisture and withstand ongoing shock and impact, it has many potential uses, including air/water penetration joints, expansion joints, doors, windows, wall penetrations or precast panels. The sealant is available in white, black or gray. Henkel Corp.; 800-562-8483; www.loctite.com.

The PowerTower is a battery-based backup power system that can be installed or set up indoors without the hassles associated with a fuel-based generator. The system can be configured to switch on automatically when normal power is lost, or serve as a portable power source on jobsites where generators are not convenient. It runs quietly and is able to provide backup to multiple circuits, at power levels equivalent to normal service. Gaia Power Technologies;
