Making the switch

Martindale Windows and Developments has become the latest firm to endorse Tremco Illbruck’s TP650 Trio window installation tape.

Martindale director, Russell Tarry, said: “We’d been hearing more and more about TP650 Trio and silicone-alternatives in general over the past few years. We were immediately intrigued by a product that claimed to offer the end-user much better performance than conventional installation methods.

“We’d also noticed customers becoming increasingly concerned with energy efficiency, and, in some cases, minimising their impact on the environment in recent years – all of which made TP650 a very appealing prospect.

“We were still a bit sceptical when the first box arrived. As good as the tape sounded, it was going to take a lot to trump a product as user-friendly as silicone. But as soon as we started using it, we were sold. It doesn’t just offer exceptional performance – it’s incredibly quick and easy to use, too.”

TP650 Trio is a compressed foam window installation tape. Once you remove the backing paper, the tape steadily expands to effectively seal all gaps and spaces between the frame and wall. Impregnated with a flame-retardant resin, the Tremco Illbruck said it is extremely safe, and offers outstanding thermal efficiency, outstanding air-tightness and driving rain resistance of at least 600 PA.
