Bonding Solutions Introduces Innovative Line of Specialty Brushes That Improve Productivity
Sparks, NV (9/24/18) – Bonding Solutions has introduced Like90 Shoppie™ Brushes.

According to Bill Kernahan, Bonding Solution’s Marketing Manager, having the right brush for each application saves time and money and improves productivity for the professional user.

TECUMSEH, MICHIGAN: When quality meets innovation, hot rodders and racers are the winners. Such is the case with steering company ididit’s newly updated line of collapsible columns.
Quality comes with the use of Delrin® shear pins that offer improved resistance to fatigue and wear. Often used in bushings and other components, acetal plastic—commonly known by the brand name Delrin®—is a thermoplastic polymer manufactured by the polymerization of formaldehyde.
Innovation comes from a new inner-workings design developed by ididit engineers that features shift tube improvements and additional perforations for double the amount of column collapsibility over previous models.
For drivers of custom cars and racers, it simply means a safer steering column in case of an accident.
TECUMSEH, MICHIGAN: Custom steering column company ididit has made further inroads with fans of unique hot rods and customs with its acquisition of Vintage Wires, a Holland Michigan-based business offering classic ignition cable sets.
Vintage Wires Ignition Cable Sets include 7.8mm spark plug wires featuring a lacquer-covered cotton braid. They are EPDM silicone insulated, with a spiral-wound suppression core. Boots, terminals and installation instructions are included. The wires are popular choices for vintage racecars and other classic projects as they have the appearance of classic fabric wires but the safety of modern wiring systems.
The acquisition adds a complementary product line to go with ididit’s renowned steering columns and accessories, allowing customers to outfit their projects with vintage spark plug wires that give engines a classic hot rod appearance using proven spark-carrying technology.
CORONA, CALIFORNIA—Off-road enthusiasts continue to install LED lighting and other electrical accessories as important aftermarket additions to aid them when traversing extreme terrain and tackling tough elements. But controllers for electrical accessories often use complicated wiring; and installation is often problematic, even for experienced installers.
Aftermarket-focused marketing company Performance Business Media partnered with Piggott and River City Rods to foster relationships with top performance manufacturers and secure products and promotion for the GTB100.
“Working with Craig and the River City Rods team has been an exciting project,” PBM Brand Manager Michael Murray said. “As a full-service marketing firm, our focus is not only on advertising and metrics, but relationships and partnerships. By making connections and creating real value for companies to support this blockbuster build through promotion and management, we have been able to ensure “el Chapo” will feature the best aftermarket products from bumper to bumper.”
At SEMA 2018, the German manufacturer SATA, producer of high-performance spray guns, breathing protection equipment, filter regulator units, cup systems and accessories, displays its new product launches under the exciting motto: Welcome to the "Sweet Sixties".
The SATAjet X 5500 featuring the new X-nozzle system now defines a new application standard for the future.
Why a new nozzle technology system?
During recent years our industry has seen a lot of changes. Complementing the introduction of waterborne paints, primers, clearcoats and other paint materials too have also been adapted to comply with legislation. As a result, a wide range of paint system technologies with different viscosities as well as new paint application methods have been and are still being developed.
What was the situation up to now?
Depending on the recommendation of the paint manufacturer and on the properties of the paint material, painters could choose whether they wanted to use the HVLP or the RP technology.
