ECT Adhesives are partnered with many of our premium suppliers to provide the highest technology adhesives, sealants, and dispense equipment to the Modular Building and Construction Industries.

Modular Building and Construction

The construction sector is vital to the Irish economy not just for employment it creates but also for the fact that it contributes c. 7% to our GDP and rising. It is an industry that provides the office space we work in, the housing space we live in and the infrastructure we travel on. We in ECT Adhesives have been supplying a variety of adhesive, sealant and dispense products to the traditional construction industry for many years and are perfectly positioned with the correct mix and balance of products to support the industry as it evolves to keep pace with the growing needs and demands of the population. The industry in Ireland is diversifying placing a greater focus on standardisation, modularisation and prefabrication. The drive towards sustainable development, faster construction times, a focus on energy efficiency, and carbon reduction targets, coupled with construction labour shortages has seen the “Offsite Construction Model” or “Modular Building Model” playing a greater role within the sector as a means of meeting the increasing demands for private and social housing, office space, apartment blocks, schools, hotels, healthcare medical facilities as well as purpose-built student accommodation blocks.

4. Hygienic Cladding

We offer a range of adhesives and sealants to help installers get the best results every time when installing hygienic wall cladding. We normally recommend full coverage of the back of the panels with adhesive as this ensures that water or contaminants can not get behind the panels and cause issues over the life of the product. However, sometimes installers also use beaded adhesives in less demanding application. We also offer a range of sealants for sealing around the outside perimeter of the panels.

As a total solution fluid dispensing manufacturer, Fisnar supply everything from simple hand or bench dispensers, to highly advanced automatic robotic dispensing systems.

5. Air Tightness Product Range

The airtightness of a dwelling, or its air permeability, is expressed in terms of air leakage in cubic meters per hour per square meter of the dwelling envelope area when the building is subjected to a differential pressure of 50 Pascals (m3/(h.m2) @ 50Pa). The dwelling envelope area is defined in this context as the total area of all floors, walls and ceilings bordering the dwelling, including elements adjoining other heated or unheated spaces. Air leakage is defined as the flow of air through gaps and cracks in the building fabric. Uncontrolled air leakage increases the amount of heat loss as warm air is displaced through the envelope by colder air from outside. Air leakage of warm damp air through the building structure can also lead to condensation within the fabric (interstitial condensation), which reduces insulation performance and causes fabric deterioration.

ECT Adhesives work in partnership with Tremco Illbruck to bring to the market a number of key products inclusing Membranes, Tapes, Sealants and Foams to assist with meeting current building regulations. We introduce the i3 System:
