C O M The key to the offer is compatibility between the products in the range. tremco illbruck has extensively tested the products, both in its laboratory and on-site to determine which products work with each other, dramatically reducing the risk of products not bonding together and putting at risk the integrity of the entire system. It’s now possible to successfully link the window interfaces and building fabric membranes with products from one source. As UK Sales Manager Alistair Inglis explains, “As acknowledged experts in the sealing of windows and facades, we were constantly being asked about internal and external sealing of the building envelope especially detailing at interfaces. As part of tremco illbruck we have access to some of the best airtightness and vapour products in the marketplace. So we brought these together to complement the existing range.” As a final point, many of the products have been brought into the range with modern methods of construction in mind. For example the ME010 Breather Membrane UV + Fire is permanently UV resistant, and EuroClass B fire rated, ideal for buildings over 18 metres where a fire rated façade is required. The full range is available to order from tremco illbruck. For more information, and to download the product literature, please visit www.illbruck.com.
