With the re-launched ecoSEAL system, a trade favourite filler product is now available in a foil. Working in conjunction with a reusable sleeve, users can now switch from traditional Geocel Painters Mate cartridges to a more environmentally-friendly alternative, which can fit into any standard gun.
Andy Cummins, Senior Product Manager at Geocel says “With the ecoSEAL system there’s no need to buy an barrel gun. It’s easy to use – simply cut the foil, insert into the re-usable plastic sleeve, attach the nozzle and fit into any standard gun. The plastic sleeve is recyclable – and when empty, the foils are eight times smaller than traditional cartridges, meaning less waste is sent to landfill and disposal costs on larger projects are reduced“.
Each sleeve can be used an average of 75 times and the system claims be be lighter than alternative foil barrel gun. As the sleeve is clear, users can also always see exactly how much product is left.
Now available as part of the new ecoSEAL range, Geocel Painters Mate is a high quality acrylic filler that can be used both internally and externally. It can be used for hairline cracks and is highly flexible. No sanding is required and it can be overpainted within one hour.
Andy concluded: “With over 100 million plastic cartridges ending up in landfill every year, it’s vital the industry takes steps to reduce its consumption of plastics and packaging. With the ecoSEAL system, decorators can still use Painters Mate, the product they know and love, whilst making a positive impact“.
