Clippers Quay is an ambitious development rejuvenating Salford’s historic docks with a little help from silicone, tape and sealant specialists tremco illbruck.
Comprising 406 apartments, spread across three 9-13 storey buildings overlooking the Manchester Ship Canal, Clippers Quay can also boast retail spaces, a 24-hour gym, undercroft parking and more.
During its construction, illbruck products played an integral part in ensuring the complex will provide outstanding performance for decades to come.
The firm’s high-strength, tear-resistant ME501 membrane was used to provide a high-performance seal between windows and the construction reveal.
Using high-bond self-adhesive strips, it can be quickly and easily attached to windows, then bonded back to the SFS with illbruck’s SP525 low-modulus sealant.
In areas where SP525 wasn’t practical, illbruck’s ME508 self-adhesive membrane was used instead – it’s not only incredibly easy to use, but it can bond to virtually any substrate.
TP600, high-performance illbruck impregnated tape, was used to provide an excellent primary weather seal between the buildings’ windows and brick facade.
And ME315, the company’s highly popular single-sided protection tape, was used to seal joints between the SFS and the concrete structure because of its high bond capability and exceptional water and weather resistance.
Product Manager David Naylor comments,
“Clippers Quay is a fantastic demonstration of the huge versatility of the illbruck range. Whatever the project, whatever the challenges, we’ve got a sealant product to suit.
“Thanks to a combination of illbruck tapes and sealants, this stunning modern development will now go on to provide decades of outstanding performance – and if you want the same for your next project, don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
