Producers can add value to their services by selling labor-saving construction supplies and tools. If a contractor can buy supplies to finish the job, he may drive a few extra miles to visit the producer that carries them. Following are products that producers can sell to contractors. WOC booth numbers were correct at time of publication. For exhibitor updates, visit www.worldofconcrete.com.

Keep surfaces clean

The durable, lightweight 125 iVac is ideal for use with surface preparation tools and cutting equipment. The product's oversized main filter ensures minimal maintenance, while an external filter shaker maintains maximum suction power and filtration performance.

Add another panel

Insulating concrete form (ICF) structures become even more energy-efficient with Extra Panel. Adding one panel behind the exterior panel of a standard ICF wall during construction creates more thermal mass and insulation values up to R-84. The panels are reversible and are molded to integrate with other ICF components. Quad-Lock Building Systems. 888-711-5625. www.quadlock.comWOC Booth #N1717, O30511
