CornerTape Silicone has unique nozzle system
The new CornerTape SiliconePro Kitchen & Bathroom Sealant incorporates the World’s first Anti-Drip Valve and Pre-Cut Nozzle System.
ornerTape plans to release a number of other sealant products in coming months. All the new sealants are anti-mould and include the patented, unique Anti-Drip Valve and Pre-Cut Nozzle System for easy use, to prevent waste and save mess. The Anti-Drip Valve is conveniently positioned close to the operator’s front hand - one
turn of the valve immediately cuts off the flow of sealant, preventing the traditionally inevitable overspill. The Pre-Cut Nozzle System comes in four sections, each of which unscrews to reveal the next, and a lid.
Each nozzle is cut at an angle of 45° and corresponds to the various sizes of CornerTape for beads of sealant 2.5mm, 4mm, 6mm and 8mm in size. The CornerTape patented Pre-Cut Nozzle System can be re-used, the cured sealant easily cleared by simply unscrewing each nozzle and taking the old cured sealant out. Andy Toyne, sales director of STG Products Ltd, said: “We realise there are many sealants on the market,
and we’re launching products into an already overcrowded category, but I’ve got to say that the feedback so far leads us to believe we’re onto a real winner and have such a significant point of difference to others products that we know both trade and DIY customers will love our sealants.” CornerTape SiliconePro sealant is available in a choice of colours – white, black, grey, light grey, dark grey,
cream and clear. The CornerTape system is designed to guarantee a simple, accurate and fast method of applying all types of
sealants on tiles, baths, showers and worktops for a perfect clean-straight-edge finish without mess. Invented by a Norwegian contractor and launched in 2007, CornerTape has won awards in France and has gained a loyal following of retailers, contractors and trades’ people since its launch. For DIY and professional users, CornerTape provides a choice of silicone remover tool, preparation wipes, a silicone forming kit and rolls of CornerTape in various sizes and roll lengths.
