Tape extends pipe life
Boa-Tape infiltration sealing tape requires no torch and no primer. The pressure-sensitive woven polypropylene tape seals concrete, steel, and polyethylene structures. Designed to seal concrete joints against groundwater infiltration, the 50-mil elastomeric adhesive in combination with 15 mils of a woven polypropylene makes this tape extra sticky for extra grip. An economical solution to extend structure life, it can also be applied to pipe structures to control corrosion. Pipeline Seal & Insulator Inc. www.boatape.com.
Multiple-use safety device
Made of recyclable paper, the DisposaCone folds flat to fit under vehicle seats, motorcycle saddlebags, backpacks, and emergency kits.

Comes prepackaged with three cones/bag or in boxes of a dozen three-packs. DisposaCone, a division of Vanguard ADA Systems. www.disposacone.com.
Compostable trash bags
The Natur-Bag compostable trash bags are available in 33-, 39-, 55-, and 69-gal. capacity. They do not contain any polyethylene or other conventional plastics, so they reduce the use of conventional plastics. They also meet ASTM D6400 Standard Specification for compostable plastics.

Doesn't interfere with emergency response
Unlike speed humps that extend the entire width of a road and cause vehicles to come to almost a complete stop, speed cushions have a series of several small humps with spaces between them. Emergency vehicles straddle the cushions, but cars must actually drive over them. Solid rubber construction with patented interlocking feature keeps the cushions securely in place.
