Chemicals company ABE Construction Chemicals, which holds the local distributing rights for several major products from manufacturer of high-quality sealants and adhesives UK-based Geocel, has launched three new Geocel products onto the South African market.
The three new products are the Geocel The Works sealant and adhesive, the Geocel Joiners Mate mitre bond instant bonding system and the Geocel Ecoseal Painters Mate flexible acrylic filler.
The company reports that the Geocel The Works sealant and adhesive is suitable for any kind of do-it-yourself task that a traditional solvent or water-based adhesives cannot handle. Further, it can be applied in wet or dry conditions on virtually any substrate for a secure bond that seals quickly and easily.
This product also does not stain and shrink and will resist mould growth. It is flexible and can be painted over with water-based paint. Quick curing offers excellent resistance to ultraviolet radiation and, unlike solvent-based adhesives, it will not attack synthetic materials.
The product is environment- and user-friendly, nonhazardous, nonflammable and leaves no odour, which means that it can be used in confined spaces and public areas. It is available in a wide range of colours and packed in a 290-mℓ ecofriendly sausage pack, which reduces waste.
The Geocel Joiners Mate system is a two-part, instant bonding system comprising a 50-mg adhesive container and a 200-mℓ aerosol activator. It is simple to use and bonds in ten seconds. The product is also suitable for medium-density fibre- board, wood, rubber, metals and most plastics.
It is ideal for use on cornices and profile mitres, trims, picture frames, skirting and architrave joints, worktops and strips, and rigid plastic trims, ABE reports.
The Geocel Ecoseal Painters Mate flexible acrylic filler is the brand leader in the UK decorators’ filler market. The product can be used indoors and outdoors for doors and window frames, skirting boards, ceilings, walls, architraves and plasterboards.
Its benefits include high flexibility that resists cracking and it contains a fungicide component that prevents mould growth. Painters Mate can be repainted within an hour, requires no sanding and can be used to fill hairline cracks. It is now also available in 310-mℓ ecofriendly sausage cartridges and comes in brown, brilliant white or magenta colours.
