ISO CHEMIE TAPE HAS NEW LOW CARBON HOMES SEALED
ISO-CHEMIE’s expanding foam sealing tape has been specified for a low carbon housing project, which incorporates the latest developments in sustainable building technologies.
More than 240 properties at Little Kelham on Kelham Island, on the banks of the River Don in Sheffield, feature ISO BLOCO ONE tape, which provides a high performance airtight, acoustic and thermal seal for hundreds of new doors and windows.
