For the roofing and cladding industry HQB1 has been independently tested to the requirements of the NFRC (The National Federaton of Roofing Contractors) Technical Bulletin 36 and acheived class “A” rating. A copy of the independent results can be downloaded HERE
HQB2 HIGH QUALITY BUTYL TAPE
GENERAL DESCRIPTION :
HQB2 is a similar product to HQB1 but with enhanced adhesive characteristics for more demanding applications where there are requirements for a degree of bonding particularly difficult materials such as polyethylene in the damp proof/jointing market.For this sector, HQB2 has a lower water vapour permeability than HQB1. A copy of results carried out on HQB1, HQB1T and HQB2 by an independent body,(VERSAPERM LIMITED), with regards to water permeability can be found (HERE).
HQB1T HIGH QUALITY BUTYL TAPE
GENERAL DESCRIPTION :
HQB1T is a preformed high performance butyl rubber based sealing tape available in single strand or multi-lane rolls. This product has been developed primarily for the tunnelling industry where a firmer sealant is required to seal against air and water ingress. This product is often required in much larger profiles and can be manufactured in sizes up to 45mm in thickness. The product is cost effective, non toxic and requires no tools to apply.
HQB1P STRIP SEAL HIGH QUALITY BUTYL TAPE
GENERAL DESCRIPTION :

- HQB1T Butyl Tape
All our tapes should be applied to surfaces at a temperature range of between +4 and +30 deg.C. For best performance the surfaces should be clean, dry, and grease free. The product should be unwound and lightly pressed into position leaving the release paper in place. On forming the joint the release paper is removed and the closing surface pushed firmly in place, pressure applied along the length of the joint and mechanically fixed if necessary.
TAYFIRE UNIVERSAL FIRE (TUF) SEAL – 4 ½ HR SEISMIC SEAL
The Tayfire Universal Fire (TUF) Seal is a passive linear gap seal which has been independently tested by Warrington Fire Research Centre to BS 476: Part 20: 1987 including joints, achieving over 4 hours integrity.
It is intended for use as a fire and smoke sealing system for all kinds of gaps and joints including larger than normal movement, expansion and contraction, typically as required in metal framed buildings, airports, shopping malls & tunnel joints. It also forms a specialised system to address the typical 3 axis movement that occurs in the event of seismic shock.
Gaps and joints created during construction tend to be uneven in width and the formation of a weather resistant fire and cold smoke seal can cause problems whilst at times ensuring adequate air flow through cavities in ambient conditions.
Tayfire Universal Fire Seal
The Tayfire Universal Fire (TUF) Seal has been designed to overcome these problems. The system consists of retaining brackets bonded with specialist intumescent material. An outer layer of glass cloth bonded with intumescent encompasses the seal.
It is available in 1 metre lengths, is easily and quickly installed. TUF seals are durable and require minimum maintenance. The fire properties of the seal are not affected by water and can therefore be fitted in areas subject to water ingress.
The seal is designed to cater for movement in all directions and can cope with a joint which has a movement range from 25mm up to 185mm.
The versatility of the TUF seal allows it to be used in a wide variety of internal and external applications in both new build and refurbishment.
Seismic movement joint. Floor separation fire/movement joint.
Fire seal to wall cavities. Junction of compartment wall/floor or structural soffit.
Joint at wall heads. Joint between cladding and floor.
The Tayfire Universal Fire seal has been tested at Warrington Fire Centre to BS 476: Part 20: 1987 and achieved 270 minutes integrity and up to 190 minutes insulation.
Further information on an extensive range of other fire protection products is available from the company.
These include intumescent coatings for timber and steel and also fire barriers.
