According to the company, Microplane's Stainless Steel Sanding Discs sand five times faster than traditional sandpaper and last seven times longer. The discs are made in coarse, medium and fine grit categories and feature a razor-sharp cutting surface that resists rust and fits most five- and eight-hole vacuum configurations.

Following the company's 30-inch dishwasher, the Millennia 24-inch dishwasher by Dacor features a Soil Sensor that detects the amount of debris on the dishes and determines the precise water temperature and cycle time for cleaning. The unit is fully insulated for quieter operation and has five wash cycles and three wash options.

All models feature the company's universal comfort grip ergonomics and PosiLcok depth-retention nose piece as well as a lock-on button for extended use and a forward/reverse lever located in front of the trigger.

Backed by a 10-year system warranty, Laticrete's Hydro Ban antimicrobial load bearing, waterproof and anti-fracture membrane does not require fabric in the field. According to the company, it bonds directly to copper, steel, PVC, and pipe penetrations and can be flood-tested in a day.
