On the back of their widely used and trusted white heritage putty, Hodgson Sealants have just launched an additional black variant in response to customer demand and as a glazing solution for the steel window segment.

The heritage putty from Hodgson Sealants provides the visual appearance of a traditional putty, yet benefits from the fact that it can be painted within a matter of hours with water or solvent based paints**. The introduction of the black colour will enable businesses to restore and replace windows where there is a requirement for slim or reduced sightline heritage glazing. Heritage glazing includes applications in conservation areas, listed buildings and in period properties.

This heritage putty from Hodgson Sealants has been specifically developed and tested so that it’s suitable for use in contact with the edge sealant of insulated glass units and the PVB interlayer of laminated glass. It can also be used for internal and external applications and is isocyanate, silicone and solvent free and is in a moisture cure format, durable and permanently elastic.

Gary Thomas, commercial director of Hodgson Sealants commented: ‘Our heritage putty is a strong seller for us and part of our heritage glazing systems that have been developed and tested here in the UK. The introduction of black will further support the requirements of our customers and also to address more of the steel window segment.’

**Paintability: Paintable with both water and solvent based products. It is recommended that due to the availability of many different paint types that compatibility tests are conducted prior to painting. Heritage putty can extend the drying time of solvent based paint systems. The use of water based systems can be considered to avoid this. Skin formation and curing times of Heritage Putty will vary depending upon temperature and humidity, lower temperatures and low humidity will extend rates of cure. For best results it is recommended to apply paint a few days after glazing.
