F. Ball Launches Eco Pouches

F. Ball and Co. Ltd. has introduced a new, more environmentally-friendly packaging solution for its Stopgap 400 Repair compound and Stopgap 500 Micro floor finishing compound. The 100% recyclable ‘eco pouches’ require significantly less plastic to produce than the existing packaging.

Durable and waterproof, the pouches are lighter and easy to handle, more convenient to use and deliver extended product shelf-life. The introduction of two pack sizes for each product, in response to feedback from the flooring trade, offers contractors greater choice.

F. Ball Managing Director Mark Hughes said: “The new eco pouches are another significant step in our continued efforts to reduce plastic waste; a sentiment that is shared throughout the flooring industry and very much welcomed by our customers. In developing the eco pouches, we also wanted to take the opportunity to deliver additional customer benefits, including pack size flexibility and extended product shelf life.”

The introduction of the innovative eco pouches demonstrates the company’s commitment to reducing plastic waste within the flooring industry. This follows the recent launch of fully recyclable 5-litre plastic bottles for the company’s gauging liquids, primers and tackifiers which are themselves made from 95-98% recycled plastic and a new 20-litre recyclable bottle for its Styccobond F41 carpet tile tackifier.

Stopgap 400 Repair is now available in 5kg and 10kg eco pouches, while Stopgap 500 Micro is available in 4kg and 8kg eco pouches. Stopgap 400 Repair is a fast-setting, rapid-drying compound for repairing internal floors in light to heavy duty areas prior to the application of a suitable floor levelling compound. Stopgap 500 Micro is a rapid-drying floor finishing compound for creating a smooth surface over plywood and other rigid, dry, absorbent surfaces, prior to the installation of floorcoverings.
