New sealants from Essve secure the roofing jobs

Essve has developed two new sealant products for repair and sealing of roofs. UniversalSeal Allweather is for sealing and mounting of gutters and roofs. New RoofSeal enables easy repair and sealing roofing felt, tin roofs and also cracks in foundations. ”Small issues quickly become large ones when it comes to roofs and gutters. Our products are developed so that the professional craftsman can quickly and effectively solve a number of incidents, including during damp and cold conditions”, says Lisa Jungerts, Product and Development Manager for Adhesives and Sealants at Essve.

This year, Essve has presented a number of news within the adhesive and sealants segment. Next in line are two new solutions for sealing, repairing and mounting of roofs and gutters.

With UniversalSeal Allweather, professional craftsmen can seal and repair roofs and gutters, but also other bushings, even during wet conditions.

– When it comes to roofs, you typically have to act both quickly and with precision. Sealing a leaking roof during a rainy November must be done fast and with safety in mind. In those scenarios, you have to have products which deliver every time, regardless of weather. UniversalSeal Allweather is surface-dry in just a couple of minutes, enabling for quick action when issues arise, says Lisa Jungerts.

New Essve RoofSeal is perfect for repairing and sealing of roofing felt, tin roofs or even foundation. RoofSeal is asphalt-based (bitumen) and strengthened by fiberglass. This combination secures a very filling joint, delivering a waterproof seal between different materials. RoofSeal can also be used for mounting of tin or roofing felt.

– In the Nordics, we see great shifts in both temperature and weather. -30 degrees celsius and ice in the winter time and 30+ degrees and sunny just a few months later. Regardless of weather, the professional craftsman needs to get the job done. New RoofSeal is a great example of our product development philosophy, according to which the product is developed to deliver equally well in both hot and cold, damp or dry environments, and guarantees a precise end result, says Lisa Ljungerts.
