Specialty Solutions Manufacturing, Inc. Introduces Sand-Rich at the '07 World of Concrete

European Decorative Waterproof Overlay System Now Available in the US

NEW HYDE PARK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 17, 2007 -- Sand-Rich waterproof flexible stone overlay decking system, brings home the "feeling of the beach" the week of Jan 22nd, at the World of Concrete show in Las Vegas.

Specialty Solutions Manufacturing, Inc. (, located in New Hyde Park, New York, introduces beautiful Sand-Rich™, the only watertight resurfacing system with a rich sand finish and luxurious feel. SSM is offering free certification training to contractors who visit booth S20430, and "stand on sand."

Unique to the industry, Sand-Rich™ is a flexible coating process that adheres to most any surface. Based on proven European technologies, it consists of a waterproofing membrane, overlaid with a tough "flexible stone" coating with that familiar "beach feeling."

Sand-Rich™ renews and beautifies deteriorating or unattractive surfaces on rooftops, balconies, concrete and pool patios, tile floors, and wood decks. It has unlimited uses and aesthetic possibilities. Apply to flat roofs made from EPDM, multi-ply or foam to convert any rooftop into an attractive outdoor patio. Sand-RichTM turns unusable roofs into valuable real estate!

This environmentally friendly, liquid applied, fully adhered system is just 1/8" thick and weighs 20 oz. per square foot. Low height and weight eliminate the need for costly demolition, reinforcement, or construction work. This saves time and money compared to other methods such as tile, pavers, or wood. No other product offers more benefits, or solves more problems, at a lower life-cycle cost than Sand-Rich™!

Company President Scott Richards says, "This is our flagship product embodying our company philosophy of 'Work smarter, not harder.' To the waterproofing, masonry, tiling, and roofing professional, this is the all-in-one solution you've been seeking. For architects, designers, property managers and owners, it offers endless possibilities to upgrade and repair failed surfaces, while putting an end to chronic leaks. Response has been very enthusiastic."

Use outdoors to resurface and repair leaky tile decks. Use indoors over tile to create slip-resistant and attractive safety surfaces for wet areas in public bathrooms, health clubs, hospitals, schools, country clubs, etc. Customers say that walking barefoot on a Sand-Rich floor feels like they're getting a foot massage.

This tough, multi-use, application-specific system is highly resistant to mold, chemicals, and harsh UV rays. It is infinitely maintainable and never needs to be removed.

SSM Inc. specializes in products that provide easier, better, smarter ways to solve difficult problems with building exteriors. They are now offering certified dealer training programs to qualified contractors in the U.S. Educational seminars for architects and designers are also available in some areas.
