United Gilsonite Laboratories manufactures over 80 paint specialty and home maintenance products which are sold nationally and internationally at hardware stores, home centers, paint stores and lumberyards.
UGL has come a long way since 1932; meeting new and changing challenges and demands have kept us profitable along the way. By maintaining our emphasis on keeping with the latest technology and market trends we have been able to grow our product lines and uphold our quality.
This was apparent when in 2002, DRYLOK Masonry Waterproofer was rated again, for the second time, as America’s #1 Masonry Waterproofer by a leading consumer ratings publication.
In 2001, the need for speed in home improvement products became very important. With society changing and the increasing dual family incomes, time had to become a factor in the drying of these products. UGL incorporated quick drying packages in most of their ZAR products including the ZAR Wood Stain and created an ULTRA line of wood finishing products.
Meeting the demanding environmental regulations set forth by the U.S. government has and will continue to be an on going challenge. With environmental regulations and quality at the forefront of our product development, UGL has developed many revolutionary products.
In 2005, UGL developed a low VOC ZAR Oil-Based Wood Stain and a Low VOC Latex-Base formula of DRYLOK Masonry Waterproofer.
Using revolutionary new resin technology in 2006, UGL was able to formulate a Waterborne Oil Modified Polyurethane, ULTRA Max, which blends the quick drying properties of a latex base and the durability of an oil base finish. Also formulated was DRYLOK E1, one part epoxy concrete floor paint. This is another product developed with new technology that only UGL would have.
With over 15,000 dealers nationally and internationally, there is always a friendly UGL salesman nearby. Our sales team consists of direct salesmen who work one-on-one to provide our dealers with the best products and service available in the market.
