To be considered at all construction locations
- It is estimated our industry disposes of 2 million plastic sealant cartridges, each week, in the UK. This contributes to a significant amount of single use plastic, in an industry which consumes nearly a quarter of all plastic. Alternative ‘foil sausages’ or ‘chubs’ are readily available for all sealant applications and can reduce waste up to 95%.
- The benefits include:
- ‘Chubs’ contain more sealant per tube.
- Waste volume is decreased significantly as only a foil casing disc remains after use.
- Most, if not all, the product can be discharged leaving no product residue left in the ‘chub’, unlike plastic sealant cartridges (which often renders the packaging hazardous for disposal).
