Alternative to Single Use Plastic

It is estimated our industry disposes of 2 million plastic sealant cartridges each week in the UK.

This contributes to a significant amount of single use plastic, in an industry which consumes nearly a quarter of all plastic.

Alternative ‘foil sausages’ or ‘chubs’ are readily available for all sealant applications and can reduce waste by up to 95%.

The benefits include

  • Chubs contain more sealant per tube .
  • Waste volume is decreased significantly as only a foil casing disc remains after use.
  • Most if not all the product can be discharged leaving no product residue left in the chub unlike plastic sealant cartridges (which often leaves hazardous packaging for disposal).
