Duo E gasketed window membrane
The new push-fit Duo E gasketed window membrane from Tremco illbruck has been installed at a student residence in London.
In its first UK application, the window membrane was installed at the student residence in Wedgewood Court in North London as part of a project for the UNITE Group.
The house has a concrete frame and used UNITE’s modular construction techniques, with components manufactured off-site and delivered on a just-in-time basis.
The membrane is for application to windows and doors after installation.
The membrane has a tear-proof woven fleece fabric with a polyethylene copolymer film.
To seal a frame, Duo E is attached to the wall with butyl adhesive and then to the window or door with the gasket or self-adhesive strip.
The product has a specially designed reactive membrane whereby the sd value (water vapour permeability) changes depending on the humidity inside the joint.
This enables Duo E to perform as an intelligent seal for airtight internal joints, and weathertight, breathable external joints.
The intelligent system ensures that the joint dries out quickly, protecting against mould and moisture damage.

Tremco illbruck’s ES600 moisure vapour suppressant has recently attained BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method) accreditation as well as EC1 compliance. Water-based ES600 has a low VOC content and is used for tackling residual moisture in new constructions. It is a single component moisture vapour suppressant which can be applied within one hour, allowing some floorcoverings to be applied the same day.
Tremco SF108 (formerly known as Treadfast 108) is a pressure sensitive adhesive for vinyl floor and wall coverings as well as most rubber floor coverings that has been awarded BREEAM compliant recognition for its sustainability. SF108 is also solvent- free, non-flammable, offers low toxicity and meets current legislation for low VOC requirements. The BREEAM recognition makes it the right specification, especially for schools, hospitals and other sensitive projects.
Tremco illbruck compares the ideal cricket test pitch to that of a contract flooring installation – both need to be very flat, offer a safe footing and be able to withstand heavy wear. Tremco illbuck’s range of tackifiers offer ease of application and compatibility across the range. All adhesives are trialled to ensure they work in partnership with compatible underlayments, moisture vapour suppressants and damp proof membranes.
