CT1 – the specialists choice of Sealant and Adhesives!
When building the groundbreaking Wavegarden Cove project in Bristol, engineering specialists Andrew Scott Ltd needed extremely high preforming, highly deformable and very durable adhesives and sealants guaranteed to endure rigorous and testing conditions in consistently wet conditions, including permanently underwater.
The Wave in Bristol is the brainchild of founders Nick Hounsfield and Craig Stoddart (pictured), who wanted to create a positive, healthy, well-being destination for people.
Designed by APG Architecture, The Wave is a 180m inland surf lake generating up 1000 waves per hour ranging from 50cm in height up to 2m high crashing bodies if water, delivering unrivalled inland surfing experiences suitable for every level from beginners to the seasoned professionals.
Finding Sealant & Adhesive Solutions for Challenging Build Environments
With the originally specified adhesives failing to meet the tough requirements of this complex build, Project Manager Steven Hunt turned to CT1. This was driven by the need for products guaranteed to stand the test of time in harsh, wet conditions, including constantly moving, floating platforms. CT1 delivered superior adhesive and sealant performances while also meeting the client’s environmental and sustainable build values.

With unique ‘Tribrid®’ technology CT1 sealant and adhesive is now 3 times stronger, with 350% elongation, secured colour retention and enhanced performance even in the harshest outdoor applications.
Furthermore, CT1 is the high strength, solvent free, environmentally compliant and most ecologically advanced sealant and adhesive available that’s used by construction professionals in every sector of the industry.
CT1 was put through every possible assessment for adhesion, flexibility and strength, exceeding every expectation and providing the architects, specifiers, engineers and clients with assurances and confidence in the success of their project.
CT1 not only delivered during the build phase but it continues to deliver while being tested every day by the harsh environment exacerbated by the strength of moving bodies of water and thousands of users.
