Sustainable choice for decorative paving
TrafficPrint is a hot-applied, thermoplastic- based surfacing material that looks like brick pavers for crosswalks, roundabouts, roads, and sidewalks. Quick to install, it can be opened to vehicles and pedestrians in an hour or less. The surface treatment is made of natural and recycled components including resins, vegetable-derived oils, and recycled glass, and resists cracking and indentation.

Year-round salt storage
The multifunctional Hi-Arch Gambrel features an interior clearance of 30 ft. or more, allowing tractor-trailers to dump salt directly under cover, and mixing and loading operations to be done inside too. This protects the environment and enables crews to work more safely and efficiently while saving time and money. Advanced Storage Technology Inc. www.saltstorage.com. Booth 1139.

HOBAS Pipe is a centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced, polymer mortar pipe that's inherently corrosion-resistant, providing a low life-cycle cost. It can be used in every installation method of new construction and rehab including open-cut, sliplining, jacking, microtunneling, two-pass tunnel, casing carrier, and aboveground. The pipe's leak-free, push-together joints reduce installation time and costs. HOBAS Pipe USA. www.hobaspipe.com. Booth 347.
