Blackjack acquires the UK rights to the Latex·ite range

Published:  11 May, 2011

HARTFORD: Blackjack Surface Technologies has announced its acquisition of the Latex·ite driveway maintenance product range.

Latex-ite products are distributed throughout the US and Canada by Home Depot as well as a variety of smaller DIY chains with sealer sales in excess of one million pails each year.

The sealers are water-based asphaltic emulsions, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly with low VOC emissions. They are designed to be user-friendly, hard-wearing and affordable.

There is a range of ancillary products to compliment the range, from a driveway cleaner that plugs onto a garden hose with Hozelock fittings, through to various crack fillers and minor repair patch kits.

Blackjack Surface Technology is currently looking for retail partners to stock the products and is offering a variety of point-of-sale solutions and end-user instructional aids in both video and printed formats.
