London Construction Week: ISO-Chemie showcases energy-efficient sealing solutions

ISO-Chemie is displaying its range of airtightness, thermal and acoustic sealing solutions on Stand OS117 at the Construction Week Show in London, from 3 to 5 May. The foam window and door sealant tapes specialist has a presence at the show’s ‘offsite’ area, where it is set to showcase products including ISO-Top Winframer and ISO-Bloco One.

ISO-Top Winframer is a structurally solid, prefabricated installation frame manufactured in a range of variations and sizes. It can be cut quickly to length on site, and secured in position using a single component adhesive and, if necessary, fixing screws.

A multi-purpose foam tape, ISO-Bloco One provides effective and rapid sealing of windows from inside the building during construction, avoiding the need to use time-consuming and costly external access systems. This can deliver cost savings of up to 70% when compared to traditional three-component systems.

Andy Swift, ISO-Chemie’s sales and operations manager for the UK and Republic of Ireland, said that the products offer controlled, non-weather-dependent construction and rapid installation benefits. He added: “We are also targeting the retrofit sector, which is a big sector offering huge growth potential, showcasing the products’ capabilities to effectively add another outer wall to current inefficient old housing stock. This can improve thermal loss and sound reduction, and comes amid growing acceptance of sealant products, which is leading to their increasing use across the building and construction spectrum.”

ISO-Chemie is one of Europe’s main producers of impregnated foam sealants, specialising in the manufacture of foam products from polyethylene (EPE), polypropylene (EPP) and polyurethane (PUR) using the latest production techniques. The company’s UK technical and distribution operation is based in the north east of England, supported by a dedicated logistics service to ensure that customer orders are completed as quickly and efficiently as possible (usually next-day delivery).
