Trade makes the bond with new illbruck SP045 26 November 2020

Balancing cost and quality factors, SP045 multi adhesive from illbruck is suitable across short or long-term installations, where a quick and strong bond is required, and can also be used as an assembly aid for heavyweight fixing.

Combining strength and flexibility, in an easy and controlled application, illbruck says users are left with an immediate, positive first impression, with the product offering a good initial tack, while the adhesive is curing.

This secure initial fix reduces the need for mechanical fixing or additional support during the curing process. A full bond then quickly occurs, with adhesive strength maintained after curing. With a primer-less adhesion on a broad range of construction materials, typical  applications include the fixing and mounting of interior wall panels and coverings, skirting board, decorative edge, picture rails, door and floor trim, ceramic tiles and carpet grippers.

“SP045 represents an exciting development in our product range, offering the trade a fast and clean adhesive, which represents great value. Sustainability is also assured, with SP045 supplied in a foil pack, meaning no empty tubes to landfill – while the low VOC, low odour formulation, free of isocyanate and solvent, improves safety in application and reduces health risks,” explains Alistair Inglis, sales director for Construction Products Group (CPG) UK’s sealing, bonding and insulation division – which includes the illbruck brand.

Offering sealing and bonding products for windows, façades, interiors and exteriors, illbruck is one of CPG’s portfolio of leading construction product brands, which also include Tremco, Flowcrete, Vandex and Dryvit, as well as Nullifire.

These high performance building materials - including roofing and waterproofing solutions, as well as sealing, bonding, insulation, flooring and fire protection systems – together offer a single source for specifiers and contractors.
