This issue of

highlights some of the new soy products that have recently come to
market thanks in part to soybean checkoff funding.


ELMS Raises the Roof, to a New Level of Quality

Research by the United Soybean Board

(USB) and s
oybean checkoff has once again helped bring a
new product to market with the addition of the Environmental Liquid Membrane System (ELMS)
Platinum series. The ELMS line is
manufactured

by Green Products, LLC, and is made of
renewable,

domestical
ly
grown soybeans.
The product

is a solar
-
reflective
,

biobased urethane roof
coating to be applied as

a liquid
.

Some of the benefits offered by this coating include 100 percent
waterproofing even under ponding water, low VOCs and UV resistance, as well as
stain, mildew and
mold resistance.


Use Soy, Not Water

A new soy

soybean solve
nt base to remove heavy
-
duty soils safely and easily. The cleaner can be used with or
without water and contains aloe
