New Hollands Tractor Factory
Project LocationBasildon, Essex
Main ContractorVoith (UK) Ltd.
The project was to replace all sealant joints on the external building facade that was having an overal face lift and repaint ahead of a VIP visit to the factory plant.
The old sealant was removed by cutting back as far as possible with a Stanley knife and any residue sealant on the glass was cleanly removed by scraping with a blade. Once brushed clean, both the aluminium frame and glass was then cleaned using a surface cleaner in preparation. Once dried, our 825 LM silicone in white was then applied in a 6x6mm chamfoured fillet joint between the aluminium frame to the glass and correctly tooled in. The 825 LM silicone in white was additionally used to seal 20mm x 20mm butt joints horizontally under the building roofline and vertical column joints, which was then tooled smoothly in against adjecent substrates.
