World of Concrete has come and past and yet again it was a success. Attendance wasn’t quite what it has been the past few years but none the less it was a success for Synpro. We were able to see and visit with current clients as well as have very productive conversations with soon to be clients. It’s also nice to see the latest and greatest the industry has to offer in equipment.
WOC was a great success on multiple fronts; most importantly on our Revive-Crete truck wash/concrete remover (the only OEM approved truck wash that is a true triple zero HMIS and the only truck written into Mack’s warranty not to void their warranty. (please contact me if you would like a copy of the warranty and it’s also public knowledge and can easily be seen.
Our other product that people were absolutely amazed with is our Fusion product, the anti-stick internal drum treatment that prevents concrete from building up on the inside of the drum for up to six months, eliminates the need for chipping, no build up of weight to haul, AND Fusion users average less than 30 gallons of water for washouts and have faster loads and pours. Please contact me for samples and driver training regarding the use and advantages of Fusion.
Many say, and I would agree, that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. I say this because as I walked the halls I noticed company’s booth that are competitors of ours and what really stuck out to me was how all these “key words” they use are exactly like ours, as if they copied them, verbatim. I say this because you the consumer have to be ware of this because as of right now there is nothing from any “chemical” company making any claims they wish. Some of these key words companies like to use and “brag” about are:
· The Environmental Choice
· Acid Alternative
· Phoshate free, Chloride free (easy way to hide the other acids they contain)
· Active ingredient occurs naturally in sugar cane syrup (another way to hide the fact their product still contains acid..it’s just a play on words)
· “Environmentally friendly X-Concentrate” – acids are not environmentally friendly
· Replaces harsh and Dangerous Acids – ALL acids are dangerous
· Some companies even use the word patented – having a product patented by an independent lab, not the US Federal Patent Office doesn’t qualify as patented.
When choosing a truck wash/concrete remover, be very concerned if there are limitations on where you can use the product, when the proper time to use the product, and be very concerned about the key play on words they use.
Our entire line of Synpro Products are the only products that carry a triple zero HMIS an is the only product that is truly PATENTED, meaning there is not another product on the market that can come close to us. Also, all of our products do work as advertised as proven by our OEM partners Mack, McNeilus, Shumaker, London, Elkin, the US Navy and Coast Guard, and Blue Bird.
If you would like to see written proof of our endorsements from our OEM partners, please contact me and I would be more than happy to provide that to you.
Here’s to looking forward to the ConcreteWorks 2018 and next years World of Concrete.
