This new cordless 18-volt 1.5Ah impact driver combines the high torque of automotive wrenches with the precision of traditional driver drills. The driver includes an electric brake and is designed for use in fastening, driving and drilling applications. Compact and lightweight, the driver allows maneuverability in awkward or overhead applications. The lithium ion battery reduces the tool’s weight lessening user fatigue. The driver features a two-piece magnet motor with a tightening torque of 1150 in-lbs and its electronic feedback power control switch provides the user with equal torque and speed in both forward and reverse. The driver also features an integrated LED work light to illuminate dim workspaces.
Stainless steel pins ET&F FASTENING SYSTEMS

The screw drill bit sleeve is able to work with both sizes of the drill bits, eliminating the need for two drills.
Gas-driven fastening system HILTI
Ergonomically designed, Hilti’s gas-driven fastening system allows contractors to drive nails in tight corners and narrow track profiles. Designed for a wide range of repetitive fastening jobs, the GX 120 drives nails into concrete, rendered masonry, sand-lime block, concrete block and steel with ease. It can drive 750 nails with a single gas can. In addition, a gas level indicator displays how much gas is left at the touch of a button, eliminating guesswork as well as the need to remove and check the can. The gas injection is electronically controlled so there is no battery to charge.
Polyurethane foam adhesive FOMO PRODUCTS, INC.
The Handi-Stick adhesive is a one-component, pressurized polyurethane foam adhesive for ICF construction that is designed to create a strong, permanent bond while offering a three-minute open time to ensure quick bond strength. It cures when ambient moisture in the air reacts with the adhesive. Once mounted, more than 1,000 lineal feet of adhesive bead can be applied without changing cans. It was developed without VOCs, making it an environmentally-friendly product.
High-pressure fastener AEROSMITH FASTENING SYSTEMS
This new High Pressure StepPin was created, tested and marketed to attach cold-formed steel track to concrete. Originally designed for use in 400 psi high pressure pneumatic tools, the new fastener has been improved with a rolled point with a smooth step shank that allows for fast, smooth penetration into 6,000 psi concrete.
