Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

"We intend to leverage RPM's established sales and distribution network to take the PDS product line deeper into the European marketplace.

RPM's consumer products are used by professionals and do-it-yourselfers for home maintenance and improvement, boat repair and maintenance.
