Construction & building safety

A variety of polyurethane, silicone and acrylic adhesives and coatings that are specially formulated for the construction and building safety sector.

Construction & building safety

Guaranteed performance for your building projects and materials

Industrial adhesives have been complementing or substituting traditional mechanical fixing methods in the construction industry for many years. They can offer enhanced durability, faster installation times, design flexibility and uncompromised aesthetics.

 

Coatings also have a crucial function in construction and building safety. From intumescent coatings for fire safety, to protective architectural roof coatings, they form an integral part of the finished building by improving or enhancing substrate properties, performance, longevity, and appearance.

 

What we do

Itac manufactures and supplies a variety of polyurethane, silicone and acrylic adhesives and coatings that are specially formulated for the construction and building safety sector.

 

We are also sole manufacturers of the UK’s market leading commercial roof refurbishment systems: Seamsil® for cut edge corrosion treatment, Delcote® where a full roof coating is required, Deglaze® for rooflight refurbishment and Delcote® GS for gutter refurbishment.

 

We work hand in glove with building surveyors, chemists, and product developers in the industry to formulate and manufacture products that provide complete peace of mind in their proven and trusted performance.

The ITAC Effect

Together, we’ll make it happen!

Itac provides real value to the production of new products and the improvement of existing ones. Whether it be maintaining brand image through applying a UV protective coating on an outdoor sign; or applying a light deactivated adhesive for ease and comfort in the removal of medical dressings, Itac can make it happen!

Permeability

Promoting the right levels of fabric airtightness and waterproofing to meet specific requirements.

 

>>>

Permeability

  • Waterproofing – Waterproofing is the process by which an object is made to resist the ingress of water.
  • Air Tightness – Air Tightness is the ability of a fabric (or fabric coating) to allow the passage of air (or other gas). 
  • Anti-Corrosion – Anti corrosion refers to the protection of metal surfaces from corrosion in certain environments.

Durability

Fixing, enhancing, protecting, and preserving for long term performance, reliability, and dependability.

 

>>>

Durability

  • UV Resistance – Preventing from degradation of colour  or other properties when an adhesive or coating is exposed to UV.
  • Abrasion Resistance – The degree of abrasion resistance of a coating will be a function of the physical properties of the polymeric species used in that coating. 
  • Anti-Corrosion – Anti corrosion refers to the protection of metal surfaces from corrosion in certain environments

Heat & Fire

Maximising fire protection, enhancing safety, safeguarding life, and preserving property.

 

>>>

Heat & Fire

  • Flame Retardancy & Flame Resistance – Flame resistance is the ability of an object to resist ignition when exposed to a naked flame whereas flame retardancy is the rate at which fire is extinguished once the ignition source has been removed. 
  • Thermal Insulation – Thermal Insulation is the rate of heat transfer through a material or between objects. 
  • Electrical Conductivity – Generally polymer based adhesives and coatings tend to be electrically resistive.

How we do it

Itac recognises that one adhesive or coating does not do everything, especially in the construction and building safety sector. That is why we ensure our adhesive and coating products are as diverse as our client’s needs.

Whether it is an acrylic, a polyurethane, or a silicone adhesive/coating, we ensure the right chemistry is used for the right application including rigid, flexible, and fleece-backed substrates.

This, together with the durable, fast bonding and drying properties of solvent based adhesives; and the bespoke functional capabilities of our coating products, makes Itac the perfect choice for a plethora of construction projects and building safety products.

Products and applications

Solvent based acrylic one component adhesive
Silicone based one component coating
Silicone based two component coating
Polyurethane two component adhesive
Silicone based coating with graphite

Applications:

• Roofing
• Construction
• Membrane adhesive

Benefits:

  • Ideal for when large areas of substrate need to be treated in one application. Speedy and promotes even coverage;
  • Low grab therefore can be used with materials which might require a degree of repositioning;
  • Traditional application methods so easy to use;
  • High bond strength enables excellent adhesion. Particularly suitable in construction for both pitched and flat roofing applications where the adhesive or coating needs to move or stretch with the substrate;
  • Crosslinked to promote elastomeric properties and high performance.

Roof membrane

Applications

  • Cut edge corrosion treatment
  • Full architectural roof refurbishment

Benefits

  • Low V.O.C (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions, therefore better for health and the environment;
  • Fast application for reduced labour costs;
  • Reliable and durable against UV, temperature changes, moisture penetration and building movement.  Peace of mind for installers, landlords and occupants in longevity of application and its effectiveness in maintaining the building envelope;
  • Primerless adhesion therefore easy to apply;
  • Pigmented so can satisfy bespoke colour requirements in design and application;
  • Crosslinked to promote elastomeric properties and high performance.

silicone-based roof coating

Applications

  • Architectural textiles

Benefits

  • Provides high performance over longer periods as the chemical and thermal stability of the coating protects against colour fade and embrittlement; 
  • Translucent option can support illuminated designs;
  • Provides colour capabilities for bespoke designs;
  • Crosslinked for high performance.

Applications

  • Vinyl flooring

Benefits

  • Excellent initial bond strength for efficient installation;
  • Flexible properties support difficult to bond or uneven surfaces;
  • Durable properties support substrate integrity;
  • Can facilitate production processing with the right application method.

Applications

  • Passive fire protection for fabrics

Benefits

  • Intumescent coating expands when exposed to extreme heat, maintaining fabric integrity for maximum flame resistance. Plays a crucial role in fulfilling fire safety building regulations and protects people and materials in the event of fire breakout;
  • Halogen free therefore generates smoke that is much less toxic than that generated by halogenated compounds providing increased safety;
  • High solids content enables durability and high performance of the coating in maintaining fabric integrity, yet maintains coating and application properties for ease of use.
