Sealants NI is the Ireland distributor for the fastest-growing, multi-surface construction sealant and adhesive in the marketplace, OB1 – an anchor product in the industry for over 15 years and a formulation found in builders merchants island-wide.
Previously trading for 14 years as C-Tec Belfast, Sealants NI was founded by Gavin Cairns in 2020, with the aim “to bring quality sealants and adhesives to Northern Ireland at affordable prices.”
To back up that mission, Gavin has recently launched a brand-new, environmentally friendly Nano sealant range into the Northern Ireland market – Arita. This technically advanced product range seals construction surfaces such as stone, brick, concrete, wood, metal etc. down to the Nano level with minimal change to the surface appearance, protecting buildings against the elements and increasing their lifespan.
The Arita sealant range is complemented by mould and fungus remover, floor and wall cleaner, glass cleaner and drain opener – also available from Sealants NI.
The young company is warehoused in Lisburn, with easy access to major road networks providing an excellent distribution service to their main clients: builders and plumbers merchants, hardware and DIY stores and glazing companies across Ireland, north and south of the border.
Gavin understands the needs of the construction industry well. He has been selling to builders merchants for over 30 years; specialising in sealants and adhesives for the past 17. “We don’t just sell a product,” said Gavin, “we have spent many years building relationships with merchants and their customers by supporting them and explaining how our products work.
“We’re on the road a lot, travelling to demo mornings and trade shows in order to display just how impressive these products are and how they will save time and money on jobs.”
This hard graft, along with strong social media, web and advertising campaigns, is paying off with a strong market uptake following last year’s lockdowns. “As more customers see for themselves just how effective and efficient the OB1 and Arita ranges are, our sales will continue to grow,” predicted Gavin.
“Looking to the future, our aim is to become the main supplier for sealants and adhesives in the whole of Ireland.”
