In the early 1990’s, we started manufacturing a specialist range of silicones, which we helped Delvemade to develop in cooperation with BSC (now Tata Steel), for the UK and European remedial roofing and construction market.
Through the nineties and the early part of this century, the company’s branded and patented product Seamsil has become firmly recognised as the most effective and versatile treatment for cut edge corrosion on steel roofing. It’s success along with Delcote for roof and wall cladding helped to make Delcote a highly successful business, which earlier this year became an independent subsidiary of Itac.
Twenty years ago, the story was different – Seamsil was a new and innovative product but it was relatively unknown. It was certainly not chosen by name when it was used to repair the roof of Asda’s Lutterworth Magna Park distribution centre, in 1994. It’s probably an understatement to say that the job was a success. In the last twenty years Asda’s facilities management team has had plenty of time to judge the performance of the system which they recently specified for their Pontefract site, making it the 34th Asda property to benefit from the Delvemade treatment, to date.
Delvemade approved contractor Kettles Limited, undertook the project, which covered 2000 linear metres. That’s the same highly experienced Seamsil applicator that undertook the first Seamsil treatment for Asda at Lutterworth back in 1994. How’s that for tried and tested continuity of supply?
