Granastar coloring system
The one step, hassle-free Granastar coloring system allows for incredible cost savings. Our dry granular pigments are ground into the wood, reducing the amount of pigments and water needed in the coloring process. Less pigment and less water means reduced manpower and shipping costs. mulch

Admixtures for Mortar

Polystar Mortar Admixture
An integral polymer admixture for water-repellency and efflorescence control in mortar. PMSA
VSA-10 Veneer Stone Adhesive
VSA-10 is specially formulated to increase the adhesiveness of mortar, thereby making it easier to place artificial and natural Stone Veneer. VSA-10 is a high-adhering mortar admixture that allows stones to be placed on vertical surfaces without requiring someone to hold them until the mortar sets them in place. VSA-10’s unique properties allow you to finish the job faster, saving time and money. vsa-10

Admixtures for Slump Concrete

Interair
