Flat Packers

As support blocks they carry the load of the glazed unit and spread that into the base frame profile.  As location blocks they ensure the glazed unit is plumb and square to the frame and are used in certain window types as support blocks to hinge and lock points.

They increase security around fixing points to prevent the deflection of the frame extrusion.  Packers are designed to work with Bridge packers to maintain drainage and ventilation in the window frame rebate.  Packers are also used to Toe and Heel glazed units, doors, bi-ford and patio door sets.

Frame Packers (FRPU)

These packers are designed for use during the installation of the window frame into the window reveal.  Their function is to prevent the deflection of the frame during installation, increasing security around the fixing point and support the frame so it can be installed plumb (vertical).  The “U” shaped design allows for a packer to be installed around the fixing and supporting the fixing point.
Once installed correctly with the fixings the frame is then square so that the insulated glass unit can be installed.

Mirror Adhesive

Hodgson’s market leading Mirror Adhesive is a fast-curing adhesive which allows the user to secure mirrors to many vertical surfaces in situations which would otherwise require the use of mechanical fixings. Its special solvent-free formulation has been extensively tested for compatibility with all known mirror backing paints and once cured, its flexible rubberised characteristics can accommodate small surface irregularities.

For fixing mirrors to vertical, non-porous surfaces such as painted plaster or wood, ceramic tiles and glass. Care should be taken when fixing safety backed mirrors. Due to the variety of safety backing materials currently available on the market, it is strongly recommended that the user carries out trials to confirm the level of adhesion to the safety backing before attempting to fix the mirror

Heritage Putty

Heritage Putty is an elastic, paintable, hybrid polymer based, cartridge-applied putty for the installation of single glass, insulating glass units and reduced sightline units into softwood, hardwood, steel and stone frames. For restoration and replacement of glazing in period properties, listed buildings and conservation areas. Is used for glazing single glass, Insulating Glass Units (IGU), or reduced sightline / slim style / heritage units where the appearance of a traditional putty front is required.

Key Features

  1. Moisture cure, durable and permanently elastic
  2. Suitable for use in contact with the edge sealant of Insulated Glass Units*
  3. Can be painted within hours**
  4. High strength and durable
  5. Good tooling properties
  6. Isocyanate, silicone and solvent free
  7. Suitable for internal or external use
  8. Good adhesion to most surfaces

*Note: Compatibility of Heritage Putty with the edge sealants used to construct insulating glass units is based upon experience. We do not have any reasons that indicate any incompatibilities, however, the formulation and type of edge sealants used can be changed by the manufacturer at any time. Due to this, compatibility cannot be guaranteed. The glazing method employed should be based on the glass unit manufacturers’ instruction. **Paintability: Paintable with water and solvent based systems. 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 a water based paint system 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.
