  • New fibre reinforced tile adhesive from Ultra Tile

    New fibre reinforced tile adhesive from Ultra Tile

    Ultra Tile, the premium adhesives, grouts and ancillaries brand from the Instarmac Group, is improving its expertly formulated range of powder adhesives with the introduction of FibreGrip FX. This adhesive is the result of pioneering research into product technology and advancement, conducted in-house at the Ultra Tile premises in conjunction with industry advisors.

    The company’s research project concluded that using fibres aided adhesive capabilities making it stronger. The inclusion of specially selected fibres means the adhesive is perfect for porcelain, natural stone and quartz tiles. The reinforced grab ensures a stronger bond – making it more than ideal for fixing large format, heavy tiles.

    FibreGrip FX also offers reinforced body creating thixotropic behaviour. This means that the product is workable but holds its density and will not slump, even under the weight of such large format tiles.

    Ultra Tile FibreGrip FX is suitable for wall and floor installations in both internal and external locations. It is classified under CE marking regulations as a C2 FT and is compatible with underfloor heating systems. Formulated for flexible working, it adheres to most common substrates including screwed and fixed over-boarded wooden floors and it excels where vibration is likely.

    FibreGrip FX can be laid at bed thicknesses from 3-12mm; it has a pot life of 40 minutes and sets within 2.5 hours. For more information please call 01827 871871 or email Visit the InstarmacGroup YouTube page to view this product in use.

    Durapipe PLX Blue for AdBlue fuel

    Durapipe has launched PLX Blue, a plastic pipework system specifically designed to transport AdBlue fuel in forecourts and other transport refuelling applications.

    As AdBlue is becoming more widely used within diesel fuelled vehicles, especially HGVs and tractors, PLX Blue enhances Durapipe’s existing offering, providing a solution to convey AdBlue around forecourts, from tank to pump. Designed to lower fuel costs and exhaust emissions, in order to meet European emissions standards, AdBlue is available in selected forecourts across Europe and internationally and is set to continue PLX’s legacy in the forecourt industry.

    Suitable for the variety of applications required in a forecourt, from pressure and suction systems, to offset fill and vent pipework and tank chamber connection, PLX Blue is adaptable in any project ensuring a reliable pipework system is fitted.

    Made from a specialised high grade polyethylene, a high quality material that is extremely robust, PLX Blue will safely carry the substance around forecourts, without fear of the fuel leaking into the environment. The product’s durable properties also provide a design life of more than 30 years, with little maintenance required during the lifetime of the product.

    PLX Blue is available in sizes from 32mm to 63mm, in both single wall and dual contained options. The pipework is lightweight in nature and allows for a simple installation process using an electrofusion jointing system.
