Silver sealing hy-spec from Hodgson

The new HY-SPEC Ag from Hodgson Sealants is the latest addition to their next generation range of hybrid sealants and boasts BioCote Silver Antimicrobial technology for specific hygienic applications.

This latest development from the Beverley-based manufacturer is an antimicrobial, anti-pick, high modulus sealant aimed at the hospital, secure unit, prison, detention centre and animal centre markets for refurbishment and for new construction. This formulation also provides a 99.9% resistance to viruses and microbes and has been proven effective against a broad range of bacteria including MRSA, E. coli, Campylobacter, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Listeria, Legionella, Pseudomonas, Shigilla, H1N1 Virus and AsperGillus Niger.

HY-SPEC Ag provides a permanent elastic seal with high adhesive properties to a wide variety of substrates including wood, concrete, tiles, steel, aluminium, zinc, copper, brass, uPVC, stainless steel, glass and polyester. Once cured this formulation also offers enhanced anti-pick properties versus traditional sealants.

Gary Thomas, commercial director of Hodgson Sealants commented: “The introduction of HY-SPEC® Ag to our hybrid range of sealants brings with it a number of product USP’s, including the fact that it offers anti-pick properties. Combined with the proven BioCote antimicrobial technology, it’s a standout product for the sector and another result of our on-going investment in product research and development.

“It’s also part of a wider range of hybrid sealants under the HY-SPEC® brand that offer outstanding performance credentials in comparison to traditional sealants.”
