The cutting-edge product has been flying off shelves across the region, but some depots have been particularly inundated with interest.
Eurocell Yeovil is one of those depots. “My customers love TP650,” says branch manager Jay Hannam. “Initially, quite a few of them were sceptical. Like thousands of other installers around the country, most of them had been using silicone for years, if not decades, and saw no reason to use anything else.
“But they’ve also watched as thermal efficiency has become more and more important when it comes to making sales. Recent years have seen homeowners become increasingly conscious both of their environmental impact, and the rising price of energy. And governments, local authorities and other rule-setting bodies have brought in strict environmental legislation.
“Installers realise that, if they’re going to thrive in that ever-changing commercial environment, they need to start considering sealant solutions beyond silicone – and when they hear about the outstanding performance offered by TP650, it’s not long before they want to give it a try.”
Jay has since been presented with a £100 Love2Shop voucher for TP650’s excellent performance at Eurocell Yeovil. TP650 Trio is a pre-compressed, multi-functional polyurethane tape that’s impregnated with flame-retardant resin. Designed for new-build and replacement installations, it’s quick and simple to apply, and is vapour-permeable while still offering driving rain resistance of up to 600 Pa.
What’s more, it’s fully compliant with BS8213-4:2016 CoP for the survey and installation of windows and external door sets, and the Glass and Glazing Federation’s Guide to Good Practice.
