News #2: New product, Adseal Wet Wipes!
Adfast is launching a new line of Adseal Wet Wipes in 2021.
These wipes remove excess uncured silicone from applications or tools. They are sold in containers of 90 wipes (second product below), have a light fruity scent, are allergen-free, and will be available in 8 to 12 weeks.
News #3: Adfast is now a proud AEMQ member
Adfast is proud to join the AEMQ (Quebec Association of Masonry Contractors). The members of the AEMQ constitute a strong, autonomous and independent group that advocates on behalf of its members.
This collaboration will increase our visibility among our Quebec customers!
We hope to join many such associations in other Canadian provinces and US states in 2021 to increase our partnerships, visibility, and recognition outside of Quebec.
News #4: Adfast Technical Webinars given to Architects
Our Pardot email webinar invitations allow us to reach many architects and construction professionals. In December, a total of 132 architects attended our webinars. This visibility and expert testimony often result in our products being added to architectural master specs, and thereby in the use of Adfast products in multiple North American construction projects.
Congratulations to our sales team!
News #5: Adfast in the Media
America training solutions (ATS)
Adfast is featured in an ATS Seminar article. ATS is an important association that offers LEED continuing-education seminars to architects and that helps us extend the reach of our technical webinars to large amounts of North-American professionals. The article we are featured in discusses how we transformed our production facilities fto manufacture Adclean hand sanitizer and Adshield safety visors to help fight COVID-19.
The article was published in the ATS newsletter as well as on their website, which are accessible to over 100,000 North American architects.
Sectorial Association Manufacturers of Transport Equipment and Machines (ASFETM)
A few pages are dedicated to Adfast in ASFETM magazine. The article focuses on the actions deployed by our Health and Safety Committee to maintain a safe work environment. We even appear on the cover page!
We’d like to thank our health & safety team for their wonderful work!

Our Adseal 4600 silicone sealant will be tested in the glass ramps of Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto in collaboration with ELY’s Glass.

We will inform you of the results as soon as possible.
