PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS INDUSTRYNEWS TOOLFAIR TAKEN BY STORM » » ADHESIVE, SEALANT AND TAPE specialists illbruck went down a storm during the Manchester and Exeter legs of Toolfair, the travelling trade show for builders and tradespeople. Hitting Event City in Trafford between the 16th and 18th of March, and Westpoint Exeter between the 19th and 20th of April, Toolfair drew thousands from all around the country to see the very latest in tools and construction tech. At the illbruck stand, visitors could glimpse a host of cutting-edge sealant solutions – perhaps most notably, the innovative multi-use construction adhesive, PU700. PU700 is a high-performance solution for bonding bricks and other construction materials. Capable of replacing traditional mortar, as well as serving as very high strength adhesive for wood and joinery, PU700 can offer huge time and cost savings. It would take 12 cartridges of traditional sealant to perform the same number of jobs that can be completed with one can of PU700. What’s more, the product cures quickly, allowing joints to be handled within just ten minutes of application. It cures fully within 24 hours. illbruck will continue to exhibit at Toolfair this year at Harrogate, Coventry and Sandown Park, Surrey.

The collection even includes a framed Listers sponsored shirt for an XI formed by World Cup winning keeper Gordan Banks, and a framed athletics shirt from British pole vaulter Steve Lewis. The special lot will be up for grabs as part of a fundraising auction, taking place at the Dougie Mac Annual Ball in October.
