GBlist: Couple O' Products

Hi, All--

I came across a couple of interesting products that I wanted to
pass on--

Had been looking for a non-toxic one-part urethane caulk for concrete
joints and found one from Flex-Bon Paints in Fort Myers, Florida called
"Raincheck". It is non-toxic, cleans up with soap and water and "has been
designed to compete with silicone rubber and solvent-borne one component
urethanes in terms of general physical performance properties". Contact
Kevin Phillips at (941)489-2332.

The other is Medite FR, a version of Medite containing a fire retardant,
with a UL 723 Class 1 flame rating test. It is also formaldehyde-free,
although the factory says that could change in the future if they decide to
make a cheaper version.

--and another I want to know if anyone has tried? A straw board called
"Wheatboard" from Primeboard in North Dakota, that looks like it's
somewhere between a particle board and medium density fiberboard.
