HB42 sees sales grow 45% & sets sights on NMBS Exhibition

Following a bonanza year for sales growth, Hilton Banks has announced it will be exhibiting its popular HB42 range of sealant and adhesives at the NMBS Exhibition.

The firm revealed that the HB42 range grew by 45% in sales in 2019. It launched in 2013 to meet increased demand from builders, plumbers and decorators’ merchants to supply a high-end trade brand of sealants with clear branding and sensible pricing that offered merchants good margins, the firm said.

At the NMBS show, which runs 22 April 2020 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, attendees will be able to see the products in action, including HB42’s Eco-Foil All-in-One Ultimate Sealant and Adhesive. The 400ml Eco-Foils produce 95% less waste than the single use tubes and users get 38% more sealant than in the 290ml plastic tube, according to the brand.

HB42 All-in-One seals, sticks and fills, is flexible up to 230%, can be over-painted and works in the wet. It is low in VOCs and bonds to almost anything; it is also food safe, fully curing in 24 hours.

“We are really looking forward to meeting as many NMBS members as possible and showing them why HB42 is such a hit with merchants and their customers,” said Scarlet McAleese-Banks, Marketing Director for Hilton Banks.

HB42 released a new POS option for merchants and retailers at the end of last year.

Earlier this month, NMBS formed a new partnership with the Timber Trade Foundation in a bid to boost knowledge, competency and sales in the wood products sector.
