THE LATEST GENERATION of high performance sealing solutions for the building sector will feature on the stand (D48) of ISO-CHEMIE, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of foam sealant tapes, at Scotland Build 2016. Among the products will be the recently launched ISO-BLOCO WIN2WALL multi-level sealing tape, which combines excellent performance with competitive cost and is designed for sealing the perimeter joint between windows, doors and walls in most UK buildings.

Also on display will be ISO-BLOCO ONE and ISO-BLOCO 600 foam sealant tapes alongside ISO-BLOCO FILLER, which provides a fast and cost-effective solution for sealing the cavity wall and weatherproofing the window in a check reveal situation.
