“Say goodbye to the ‘80s and get FIT for the future!”

06/21/2019

tremco illbruck’s state-of-the-art sealant solutions went down a storm at FIT Show 2019. Located at the heart of the action right in the middle of Hall 20, the firm’s stand showcased a huge array of tapes, foams, sealants and other high-performance installation essentials.

Of particular note was TP653 Trio X – the best-in-class window installation tape that was appearing in the UK for the very first time.

TP653’s innovative polymer film offers exceptional airtightness and smoke-proofing performance – making it the perfect product for helping properties achieve stringent Passivhaus standards in Europe, where it’s already very successful.

The secret to TP653’s extreme performance is its thicker structure and higher rates of compression, making it much better at keeping heat in, wind and rain out and withstanding the elements than its key competitors.

On Tuesday, a busy day of meeting customers and prospects from throughout the industry culminated in an ‘80s themed party.

Fluorescent headbands, old school anthems and sugary childhood favourites all made an appearance – but it wasn’t just a bit of fun, as Product Manager David Naylor explains.

“In one sense, the ‘80s were the fenestration sector in its heyday. Double-glazing was exciting and new, business was booming, and many people still in the industry now became incredibly successful.

“But in other ways, it wasn’t great. The sector’s reputation was very poor, and so were a lot of the products we were using.

“In most respects, we’ve come a very long way since then. The windows and doors we install are better than ever. But it’s remarkable when you think about it – the way we install them hasn’t changed at all.

“That’s the point we were trying to make. We loved the ‘80s – but it’s time to move on. And with state-of-the-art window installation products from tremco illbruck, you can provide the kind of twenty-first-century performance that modern consumers increasingly demand.”
