Norcros Adhesives is a manufacturer of a wide range of preparation, fixing and finishing products for tiling and flooring installation. The company will be using the opportunity of the Show to demonstrate that it fully understands and is ready for modular and off-site construction.
Having built its reputation on product quality and innovation, the company will be showing that it meets the construction industry’s demand for high quality tiling and flooring adhesives. These products will need to be increasingly tolerant of vibration, deflection and movement. Modular constructors will be looking for flexurally forgiving products with good cohesive strength. They will also be looking for products which dry quickly, in order to keep production lines moving at an optimum rate. Norcros Adhesives is well-equipped to satisfy this demand and to develop innovative new products to meet the requirements of the future.
Norcros Adhesives works through RIBA’s NBS Plus programme to use industry standard specification that conforms to best practice. The company is also registered to BIM Level 2, enabling design to integrate fully with off-site construction methodology. Therefore, it is well-placed to pitch for Government contracts, where off-site construction is increasingly important, such as for student accommodation, schools, healthcare and social housing.
