Several different types of caulk are available in the market today. It’s important that you pick the right type of caulk for the job you have in mind. For example, bathroom caulk won’t be as effective for your windows as exterior caulk designed for use outside the home. Some homeowners and contractors prefer the look of clear silicone caulk (as opposed to colored caulk) so it doesn’t draw attention from the home’s facade. However, the choice of whether to pick colored or clear caulk is up to you.
While some caulk can only be applied in warm weather (40 to 80° F), certain rubber or silicone caulk can be applied in weather as cold as -20° F. The rubber or silicone base prevents the caulk from freezing in cold temperatures.
You can buy caulk as either a squeeze tube or cartridge. We recommend using a cartridge and caulking gun so you can apply an even bead around the perimeter of your windows. Silicone caulk is not only long-lasting, but it effectively fills in gaps that are leaking cold air into your home.

Epoxy putty refers to a group of room-temperature-hardening substances used as space-filling adhesives. They are usually cylindrical tubes that combine two parts – a cylindrical tube of hardener surrounded by another larger cylindrical tube of epoxy resin.
Why design it like that?
So that the hardener, which when exposed to air goes bad, is protected by the outer layer of epoxy resin. This design increases the product’s shelf life.
What is Steel Epoxy Putty?
Usually dark grey in color, this metal epoxy putty repairs metal components, can patch steel as well as being able to repair or rebuild anything made of metal. This stuff when molded into any shape creates a steel reinforced non rusting putty that when applied, will repair and rebuild just about anything.
Uses of Metal Putty
- Automotive & Machine Parts
- Exhaust Systems
- Leaking Transformers
- Stripped Threads
- Rust Damage
- Household Repairs
In some applications where the applicable force is compressive, it can also be used as a cold weld bonding compound.
Now that we have understood so much about steel epoxy putty and what to use it for, which Steel epoxy putty works best?

If you want the best when it comes to epoxy putty repair sticks, look no further than this steel reinforced non-rusting epoxy putty. QuikSteel Epoxy Putty Stick by Bluemagic, USA is a permanent solution to any fix you may need.
LANOPROTECT LIQUID is sprayable form of the famous Lanolin Grease, which leaves a non‐drying liquid film that does not evaporate or wash off. The film left by LanoProtect is your protection barrier against oxidation and corrosion and with the films resistance to acidic and alkaline solutions you can count on LanoProtect to do exactly that.
There are multiple benefits when LanoProtect is used for Timber Preservation:
- Forms a Non‐toxic lanolin film
- Penetrates surface and prolongs timber life
- Does not evaporate or leach
- No breakdown with exposure to U. V. Rays
- Highlights the natural timber grain
- Seals timber to prevent moisture loss or gain, thereby protecting against rotting, splitting and drying out
- The anti‐corrosive qualities in the oil will protect nails, screws and all metal fittings from rust and corrosion.
- Non‐slip when wet
- Easy to apply to all external timbers
- Apply LanoProtect evenly coating the surface. Dry patches will need extra attention to achieve an even finish. Best results achieved with lambs wool applicators.
- As this is a penetrating liquid and not a surface finish, any excess will remain tacky and must be removed. This is easily accomplished with a terry towelling cloth and requires only light rubbing. Buffing of the surface will provide best finish.
- Should additional applications be desired in the future, simply reapply – no special preparation is necessary.
LANOPROTECT – NATURALLY SUPERIOR !!
Hot sunny days can be dangerous for people working outdoors. Heat stroke occurs due to prolonged exposure to high temperature or sun. Heat stroke progresses from mild illness like cramps, fainting to heat exhaustion. Heat stress hazards together with the harmful effects of the sun can seriously endanger the health and safety of outdoor workers.
In general, not only outdoor workers, but also others must take safety precautions during hot sunny days.
What are the symptoms of Heat Stroke?
A body temperature above 105 degrees Fahrenheit is the vital sign of heat stroke. The other symptoms include dry skin, nausea, vomiting, faintness, rapid heartbeat, shallow breathing, muscle cramps or weakness, throbbing headache, confusion, disorientation, staggering, seizures, and unconsciousness.
Victims of heat stroke must receive immediate treatment to avoid permanent organ damage. First and foremost, cool the victim.
How to avoid Heat Stroke?
It is always better to remain indoors. If possible postpone outdoor activity or else shift it to early morning or after sunset hours. But if you have to go out then take these precautions:
Wear a good hat, light-colored and light weight, loose clothing. Don't forget to keep a damp EVERKOOL Evaporating Cooling Towel with you.
Drink a lot of fluid all day
Drink lots of water prior to beginning work and about one cup in every 20 minutes while working. ORS or Liquids with sodium content are also a good choice. Coconut water is the best choice. In addition to this, drink fruit juice, vegetable juice or electrolyte rich sports drink.
हीट स्ट्रोक को उष्माघात भी कहा जाता है। यह ऐसी अवस्था है जिसमें पीड़ित के शरीर का तापमान अत्यधिक धूप या गर्मी की वजह से बढ़ने लगता है। मनुष्य के शरीर की बनावट ऐसी होती है जिसमें अत्यधिक गर्मी या तापमान पसीने के रूप में बाहर निकलती रहती है जिससे शरीर का तापमान ज्यों का त्यों बना रहता है। परन्तु हीट स्ट्रोक की स्थिति में शरीर का प्राकृतिक कूलिंग सिस्टम सुचारू रूप से काम करना बंद कर देता है जिसकी वजह से शरीर का तापमान कम नहीं हो पाता, जिसके परिणामस्वरूप शरीर का तापमान बढ़ता जाता है और अगर इस तापमान को बाहरी मदद देकर या घरेलू उपचार या डाक्टरी सहायता देकर कम ना किया जाये तो बहुत ही गंभीर स्थिति उत्पन्न हो सकती है और मरीज की जान भी जा सकती है।
Epoxy adhesives consist of an epoxy resin and a hardener. With many resins and different hardeners to choose from, they allow great versatility in formulation. They also form extremely strong durable bonds with most materials. Epoxy adhesives are available in one-component or two-component form and can be supplied as flowable liquids, as highly thixotropic products with gap filling capability of up to 25 mm, as films or even in powder form.
Why choose one-component epoxy adhesives ?
- Excellent adhesion to metals, thermoset and thermoplastic composites
- Outstanding lap shear strength and peel strength
- High fatigue resistance
- Very high impact resistance
- Excellent chemical resistance
- Easy processing
Why choose two-component epoxy adhesives ?
- Excellent adhesion to metals and thermoset composites
- High strength and high stiffness
- High creep resistance
- High fatigue resistance
- High temperature resistance (adhesive specific up to 260°C)
- Excellent chemical resistance
- Low shrinkage
A wide range of epoxy applicators are available in the market that make it easy to dispense epoxies properly and easily. These include manual, pneumatic & battery operated models.
Seen in the picture is COX, UK CEO Leigh Smith, himself using an Ultrapoint Manual applicator in his garden to do some DIY work. He sealed the spaces between the pavement slabs. COX ULTRAPOINT MANUAL is a pointing & grouting gun. An extremely useful tool for professionals & do-it-yourselfers. It is specially developed for low viscosity pointing and grouting materials.
The concept of DIY is catching up in India too.

Across industry, great emphasis is placed on the handling and application of lubricants from the moment they arrive at a facility to the time they are introduced into service. However, proper handling techniques do not end when the oil has been put into service. Once the life of the oil has been exceeded, you must ensure the lubricant is captured and disposed off, both safely and in an environmentally friendly way.

Air leakage, or infiltration, occurs when outside air enters a house uncontrollably through cracks and openings. Properly air sealing can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs, improve building durability, and create a healthier indoor environment.
