Now in its second year, METALCON is thrilled to announce this year’s TOP PRODUCT Award winners. This year’s exhibitors were invited to nominate their top metal products introduced to the market after Jan. 1, 2021 in one of 15 product categories, “We are very excited to announce our METALCON Top Products Award winners and showcase the industry’s top products and technologies at our show in Indianapolis,” says Judy Geller, METALCON’s Vice President of Tradeshows. Winners were determined by an electronic vote and all winning manufacturers are exhibiting at METALCON ’22.

Award winners are invited to showcase their top products with special product recognition at their booths next month at METALCON. Attendees will be given the chance to vote on-site for their top three choice products and the METALCON People’s Choice award winners will be announced at “The Deck” (show management booth) on Friday, Oct. 14 at 12:30 p.m.

The 2022 METALCON Top Products Award winners are:

Accessories: Classic Gutter Systems LLC – Radius Gutter
A custom seamless radius gutter is more esthetically pleasing and worry free—the perfect solution for both historical and new construction applications. The company’s proprietary process allows them to manufacture virtually seamless radius gutters in Aluminum, Copper and GALVALUME.

Insulation and Weather Barriers: ADFAST – Adseal DWS 4580 Series
Adseal DWS 4580 is a one-component adhesive sealant that vulcanizes into a durable, resilient rubber silicone when exposed to moisture and is used for caulking, sealing and electrical insulation applications. Recommended for window and door installations, it adheres to most materials and has very little odor.

Paint and Coatings: Chemcoaters – InterCoat® ChemGuard-AG
A hot dipped galvanized G40 substrate coated with ChemGuard-AG can out-perform a G235, while delivering savings of up to 50% on zinc extras. This revolutionary coating also allows steel to be formed dry in most cases, extends die life and offers cut-edge/self-healing protection.

Rollforming Equipment: CIDAN Machinery Group – TD Double Folder
This new technology addresses top issues facing the fabrication industry today. Together, CIDAN and Thalmann have made modular automation in architectural metals possible—this type of automation has never been on display before at METALCON.

Roofs: Novagard – NovaFlex Metal Roof Repair & Patch Mastic
NovaFlex Metal Roof Repair and Patch Mastic is an exceptionally versatile, tough yet flexible, mastic and roof sealer designed for repairs to metal panels, metal roof systems, gutters, and other metal buildings/structures. It cures quickly and provides immediate waterproofing for short-term, long-term, and emergency repairs.

Safety: Ridgeline Safety Systems – Ridgeline Safety Anchor
This anchor system is a permanent roof anchor that fits under the ridge cap and under the metal. Used for both residential and commercial, it allows anyone who needs to be on a roof a place to tie off. A “hidden anchor version” is available with the TRIM 1st system for steel slopes – 6/12 and up.

Structures: Roof Hugger – Roof Hugger Retrofit Sub-Purlins
These sub-purlins represent the first structurally correct metal roof retrofit framing members specifically designed to conform with existing industry standards. They are made of the same thickness and tensile strength structural steel as the existing building, plus they have been tested as a system on typical metal building framing, providing proven performance for design and code compliance.

Technology: RoofersCoffeeShop® – MetalCoffeeShopTM
MetalCoffeeShop is an online community consisting of a progressive and informative website, podcasts, webinars, articles, classifieds and so much more that will engage the metal industry. Focusing on all metal, including roofing, walls, HVAC, gutters and more, this site delivers information that builds businesses while enabling ongoing conversation.

WallsATAS International, Inc. – Omawall PL with EVOTM
Omawall PL with EVOTM is an architectural plate panel, manufactured in .10 thick aluminum ─ a great choice for high-end application, and is made fully of non-combustible materials. EVOTM is a patented panel extrusion attachment developed by Carter Architectural. Panels are prefabricated and field-cut, saving on installation time and costs by avoiding field-fabrication.

Construction Tools & Equipment: Triangle Fastener Corporation – PANEL-TITE® Burr Buster — PANEL-TITE with patented Burr Buster thread is now available with the ZAC Zinc/Aluminum head. It is the most compatible metal-to-wood screw for attaching AZ55 coated steel panels. The performance of the patented thread and point benefits panel manufacturers, installers and building owners by minimizing burrs, which reduces corrosion and the potential for leaks along with increasing the resistance to back-out.
