Heritage putty goes back to black

Hodgson Sealants has launched ablack variant of its heritage putty, which was originally available only in white, in response to demand from customers and the steel window market.

The heritage putty provides the visual appearance of a traditional putty, yet benefits from the fact that it can be painted within a matter of hours with water or solvent based paints.

The introduction of the black colour will enable businesses to restore and replace windows where there is a requirement for slim or reduced sightline heritage glazing, the company said. Heritage glazing includes applications in conservation areas, listed buildings and in period properties.

Hodgson Sealant’s heritage putty has been developed and tested so that it’s suitable for use in contact with the edge sealant of insulated glass units and the PVB interlayer of laminated glass. It can also be used for internal and external applications, and is isocyanate, silicone and solvent free, and is in a moisture cure format, durable and permanently elastic.
