Ancon introduces new super-Bond basalt fibre wall tie

  • 5 May 2016

Ancon has launched a new super-Bond basalt fibre wall tie with specially moulded safety ends that enhance mortar bond strength by up to 80%.

The Teplo-BF is based on Ancon’s award-winning TeploTie, which has been used on a number of Passivhaus and Zero-Carbon buildings throughout the UK. The wall tie boasts an ultra-low thermal conductivity of 00.7W/mk which eliminates the majority of heat loss through thermal bridging in cavity wall construction.

Due to its user-friendly design and mortar grabbing capability, the Teplo-BF is particularly suitable for use with slow-drying mortars such as lime.

The Teplo-BF is created by setting pultruded basalt fibres in a resin matrix to provide a combination of high strength and outstanding thermal efficiency.

Its ultra-low thermal conductivity means that is excluded from U-value calculations to BS EN ISO 6946, helping to minimise insulation and wall thickness. 

The wall tie is available in the same wide range of lengths as the original TeploTie and is suitable for cavities up to 450mm wide and buildings up to 18 metres in height. It also carries BBA and NHBC approvals.

Ancon marketing manager Annabelle Wilson commented: “This range extension provides the market with three distinct Teplo options – the original TeploTie for new-build applications and resin-fixing into an existing structure during retrofit, the Teplo-L-Tie for surface fixing to an in-situ structural frame, and the Teplo-BF, an improved new-build cavity wall tie with high bond strength even in slow-drying mortars and moulded safety ends.  

Ancon’s comprehensive wall tie range includes a low thermal conductivity fixing for almost any masonry construction project.”
