  • 0

Kenosha-based Abatron, Inc. and U-C Coatings, LLC in Buffalo, N.Y., have merged through acquisition, the companies recently announced.

Abatron, located at 5501 95th Ave., is a market leader in products for wood and concrete repair and restoration, while U-C Coatings is a leader in specialty stains, sealants, end coatings, and treatments for wood.

The merger creates a wider range of products, along with bigger sales and service teams, increased technical capabilities, and improved supply capabilities, company officials said.

“The more people who know about our products and use them, the more we are able to offer viable solutions to problems which would otherwise be very challenging to address,” Abatron President Marsha Caporaso said.

Abatron products include LiquidWood and WoodEpox for wood restoration, while Abocrete and Aboweld 55-1 are products for concrete repair.

Condensation is a big issue in many homes, with moisture buildup usually leading to the formation of mold. Here are five tips on how to reduce the amount of condensation in your home. 1. Keep Doors Closed When Cooking And Taking A Bath Keep doors closed when cooking and taking a bath to prevent moisture from entering the rest of your house. Instead, open windows when cooking or taking a bath or shower to let the moisture escape. 2. Dry Clothes Outside You should always dry your clothes outside in the sun when possible or by using a dryer. If it isn't possible dry them in the bathroom with a window open and the door closed. 3. Keep Doors And Windows Open Keeping doors and windows open whenever possible will improve ventilation and air circulation in your home. This is an inexpensive and quick way to reduce the level of moisture in your home.

“Abatron is a great addition to U-C Coatings that will expand our specialty offerings, especially to the contractor and DIY markets. The acquisition continues our emphasis on environmentally friendly, high performance products.” said Eric Degenfelder, CEO of U-C Coatings.

The U-C Coatings portfolio includes the Seal-Once line of eco-friendly, long lasting, water-based sealers. The company also offers Anchorseal end sealers, and Fence Guard stain for softwood fences.

The combined company will continue operations in Kenosha, Buffalo, Portland, Ore. and Seattle.
