A Bonsal American An anti-microbial agent added to sanded and non-sanded grouts inhibits the growth of mold and mildew without affecting workability, color-fastness, and other properties. Grout joints are easier to clean and stay cleaner longer, the firm says. The mildewcide will not wash away over time or lose its mold resistance. 800.738.1621. www.bonsal.com.
B Cosella-Dörken The 3-D stud-and-channel structure of the Delta-Dry weather barrier creates a continuous airspace on both sides of the wrap to facilitate drying and drainage of the wall cavity. Water that penetrates the air gap flows down the drainage channels to a drainage track at the wall base. The membrane helps maintain indoor climates and increase energy efficiency by reflecting radiant heat with its metallic silver coloration, the manufacturer says. 888. 433.5824. www.delta-dry.com.

D Mar-Flex Waterproofing and Basement Products Made from a closed-cell, cross-linked polyethylene foam, the Shockwave drainage board absorbs pressure to protect below-grade walls during backfilling and helps channel water away from the foundation. The flexible, crush-resistant board moves with the soil as it expands and contracts, the firm says. A cloth backing prevents silt from infiltrating through the board and clogging drainage channels. 800.498.1411. www.mar-flex.com.
