Providing Convenience in a Bag - LaHabra Launches Two New Products

LaHabra Wall Sanded One-Coat and BasiC926 Sanded Scratch & Brown Stuccos Available Now


Anaheim, CA — July 23, 2008 - LaHabra, the leading producer of quality stucco since 1926, today announced the launch of LaHabra Wall Sanded One-Coat and BasiC926 Sanded Scratch & Brown to their family of products. These products, previously only available as a concentrate, offer the convenience of a pre-mixed product with the reliability of quality controlled sand that meets or exceeds ASTM C144 & C897 standards.


"Our customers are our priority at ParexLahabra," said Jamie Makuuchi, Director of Marketing. "It is our goal to continue to provide innovative solutions to improve the quality and convenience of our products."


Pre-sanded products eliminates the practice of "guesstimating" the amount of sand added to the product, which helps to ensure a more consistent quality product overall. This also means that there is no need for sand piles on site and storm drains are no longer an issue.


Used under cement stucco or acrylic finishes, both LaHabra Wall Sanded One-Coat and BasicC926 Sanded Scratch & Brown are pump-able products providing additional applicator convenience. BasicC926 Sanded goes beyond normal quality control measures meeting or exceeding ASTM C926 standards. Packaged in 80 lb. bags and 3,000 lb. super sacks, these products are available through our network of West coast distributors.
