Toupret unveils new branding – making it easier to find the right filler
Toupret has launched a major refresh of its company branding and product packaging to target painting and decorating, building and construction professionals.
The brand already has the strongest product line up across all categories of any filler brand in the UK. With the goal of making a great quality filling job simpler and quicker for professionals, Toupret also wanted to make it much easier for them to choose the best product for their task.
With that in mind, the product range has been completely restructured to ensure crystal clear communication, reflecting the main uses of each filler for the professional customer. This reorganisation started with research talking to professionals to find out exactly what they want from a filler; the entire range has been built around results from these surveys and focus groups.
Many of the products have been renamed to make their application really stand out – for example ‘TX110’ becomes ‘Quick Dry Filler’. The new clean-cut pack designs are also much clearer at explaining use and type of job application in detail, making it simple for professionals to find the right filler for a seamless application. However, Toupret knows it has a loyal customer base and so the old product names remain on the pack to ensure they are still recognisable.
Colour-coded categories for interior, exterior, wood and problem surfaces highlight the main types of projects, plus two quality levels make it easy to find the best product for a job.
Other important features, such as drying times and filling depths, are also highlighted on the front of every product as part of the re-brand. For premium products, icons clearly communicate additional quality benefits, whether ‘Ready To Paint in 30 Minutes’, ‘Highly Flexible’, ‘Extremely Durable’, or ‘Controls Damp’.
For the last 80 years, Toupret has been on a mission to supply better quality fillers to professionals by striving to be a reliable, expert, and supportive brand that produces practical and innovative product.
Mark Squire, managing director at Toupret UK said of the rebrand: “The key objectives for the pack re-design were to have a clear differentiation between the categories plus an explanation of what each product is and what it does. On top of that, it was vital we conveyed strong communication of the key product features and benefits, plus reflect the quality choice to professionals giving them relevant choices for the tasks they do.
We are proud of the work we have done over the past 18 months to relaunch Toupret as a modern and dynamic filler brand. Whilst revitalising our pack design to make Toupret even easier to spot on the shopfloor, we have remained steadfast in producing the same class-leading filler that professionals can rely on for optimum results.
Whatever the job, whatever its size, whatever the surface, our complete range of high-quality fillers has the practical answer. Here at Toupret we offer the widest range of fillers in the UK and that is something we want to shout about this year”.
Toupret’s HUMI-BLOCK Staying Dry
Toupret’s HUMI-BLOCK solves a perennial problem for those who need to repair damp-damaged surfaces during restoration or remedial work. This highly effective damp-proof skimming filler provides a breathable barrier that blocks water penetration while still allowing water vapour to pass through substrates. It is a much-needed, reliable solution that resolves an all-too-common issue in repairs and maintenance work.
HUMI-BLOCK’s breathability helps to avoid replacing simple damp or flooding problems with condensation and mould issues. The professional grade damp-proof filler draws on Toupret’s 80-years-plus of industry experience, is easy to apply and has been specially developed for use on substrates that have suffered from damp, flooding or water ingress. This makes it ideal for flood-damaged basements, as well as cellars or garages above the water line.
This expertly formulated filler is easy to apply on damp or dry raw masonry or brickwork that is otherwise clean, sound, cohesive and hard. It can be applied as a skim coat and, additionally, to fill holes and cracks locally up to 1cm. HUMI-BLOCK can be applied to dry or damp substrates, allowing trades to get to work on water damaged areas far more quickly once they are stripped back to the brickwork. This means faster completion and decoration, which equals saved time and costs.
Once applied, HUMI-BLOCK can be coated with any water vapour permeable paint or system, including Toupret products such as Joint, Skim & Fill, Airspray or Decorator’s Skimcoat. There is no need to seal HUMI-BLOCK after applying it, because it will do the job of blocking inward damp penetration and the unwanted effects that can have, such as bubbling, flaking or crumbling substrates or finishes.
HUMI-BLOCK has a working time of up to four-hours and can be applied with a brush or trowel. It comes in 6kg handy-sized bags for smaller projects, or 20kg bags for larger jobs or heavy users. The product promotes maximum adhesion of coatings and finishes and is classified for water vapour permeability standards: V1 for EN ISO 7783-2 and W3 for EN ISO 1062-3.
As always, the experts from Toupret can provide on-site guidance or demonstrations for this product, as well as bespoke training from our technical team. HUMI-BLOCK and the rest of the Toupret range are widely available from leading building and decorators’ merchants across the UK.
