One of the key qualities that makes plastic such a useful material is its durability. Ironically, this quality is also plastic's major downfall: plastics can take more than half a century to decompose fully and thus are bad for the environment. To help reduce the amount of plastic waste, HB42 have created Eco-Foils, containers for the brand's bestselling All-in-One Sealant and Adhesive.

“We are acting in a bid to tackle the pressing environmental problem of disposing of the single use plastic cartridge,” the Marketing Director for Hilton Banks, Scarlet McAleese-Banks. “The Eco-Foils are very durable and foil guns are easy-to-use and keep extremely clean throughout their use. They also take a plastic sealant cartridge so can be used with every type of sealant if required. At the end of their life, the waste left over from foils is tiny compared to the plastic tubes and the foils are much easier to dispose of.”

The new HB42 All-in-One 400ml Eco-Foils produce 95% less waste in comparison to single-use tubes. Flexible up to a massive 230%, HB42 All-in-One Sealant & Adhesive is particularly versatile, delivering unmatched sticking and filling qualities. The formula is extremely low in VOC's and bonds to almost anything, making it especially useful in kitchen and bathroom applications.

Eco-Foils contain 38% more formula than the standard 290ml plastic tube, making them even more cost-effective. The food-safe sealant & adhesive, which cures fully in just 24 hours, works even in wet conditions and, once cured, can be successfully painted over with ease.

HB42's All-in-One Sealant & Adhesive is now available from BS Fixings, along with many other products from the leading brand. Discover more on our website.
