illbruck, part of the Construction Products Group (CPG) portfolio, utilises the latest in technology and innovation to develop its new TP654 illmod TRIO 1050 window and door sealing tape.
Setting the pace for the specification sector, TP654 offers a premium solution to meet the modern demands for energy and acoustic performance. This comes with exceptional weather tightness, strength and safety features as standard.
Recognising airtightness is a crucial element to achieve high energy performance buildings, TP654 has been engineered under a new geometric system to ensure warm (or cold) air is kept within a building.
As a result, the system will help architects and specifiers to achieve new levels of energy efficiency when considering the installation of windows and doors.
Alistair Inglis, Sales Director for Construction Products Group (CPG) UK’s Sealing, Bonding & Insulation division – which includes the illbruck brand – comments: “We have gone back to the drawing board to bring TP654 to the UK construction marketplace.
“Sustainability is a key driver for construction, as the industry is now working to nearly net zero energy use in new buildings since January this year, and achieving airtightness in buildings will be a key component of that.
“TP654 offers a lock tight solution to meet this need, centred around the development of new closed cell foam and airtight film technologies within the product’s design, combined with a new geometrical shape for maximum performance.
“The system helps to create a comfortable and safe environment for building users too, with the design offering enhanced thermal and sound insulation to deliver good acoustic performance, as well as the reassurance of a B1 flammability class,” he continues.
“Longevity is also assured, with TP654 formulated to robustly withstand weather conditions including UV rays and driving rain resistance up to 1050 Pa.”
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 includes Tremco, Flowcrete, Vandex and Dryvit, as well as Nullifire.
