The GPack is the sustainable solution to stiff sealant cartridges.

Population is booming, Budgets are tight and our resources are strained. We must reduce our impact on the earth and adapt sustainable practices to ensure the prosperity of generations to come. Leed certification and Green buildings go to great lengths to contribute to the sustainability of buildings, infrastructure and communities. But the little things count, too - like switching from plastic and cardboard cartridges to waste-saving sausage packs. Cheaper to make, transport and dispose of! Make sausage pack sealants and adhesives part of your plan for sustainable construction, and a cleaner future for our children.

a little change can make a BIG difference!

Bar graph comparing the waste of sausage packs to plastic and cardboard cartridges More than 2.5 Billion empty cartridges end up in landfills worldwide every year. If just a third of American residential contractors make the switch to Sausage Pack sub-floor adhesive, over 8,000 cubic yards and nearly 2 million pounds of waste would be spared from the dump.

2 point 5 BILLION empty cartridges worldwide takes over a million cubic yards of landfill real estate, Thats 80 times the volume of the Titanic, every year.

Minimize bulk and weight for optimal transportation

  • GPacks deliver 20% more weight of product per volume shipped than cartridges - Which means 34% more product per pallet shipped
  • Foil packaging’s weight per volume of sealant is just 28% of that of cartridges, saving almost 50kg per pallet - that’s weight you don’t pay to ship.
  • Optimizing sealant shipments saves transit costs, decreases carbon dioxide output and reduce traffic.

Contribute to sustainable construction

  • Make sausage packaging part of your sustainable construction methodology and environmental credentials.

Help with site waste management

  • Minimize waste by selecting the sausage size that meets your needs
  • Control landfill use.
    • Minimize disposal, taxes and related transport costs.
    • Reduce the rate at which landfill space is filling up to help avoid potential future landfill availability challenges and increased transport costs associated with long-distance disposal transport requirements.
  • Keep ahead of government regulations targeting reduced construction site waste. Prepare for potential future requirements to document site waste volume and type.

Improve aesthetics

  • Improve the look of sealant beads by minimizing interruptions during sealant application and reducing the need for tooling.

The benefits of sausage packs extend
well beyond environmental implications

Every time you need to swap out a cartridge of sealant, first comes the knife to shape your nozzle, then find a long nail or a wire and break the seal, now you’re ready to load it up in the gun...but wait, that cartridge was left in the cold for a few hours and the sealant feels rock solid. Does this scenario sound familiar? When you are using foil-packs, You can shape one nozzle - just perfect- and hang on to it all day. When you’ve finished a pack, pop out the 2” round ½” thick empty puck, and slide in a fresh sausage, clip off the metal tie with a knife or a pair of snips, and you’re good to go.

Finally, a sealant applicator with options

Our line of GC guns are designed to accept sausage packs of every size; 10oz, 20oz and 30oz as well as the 13oz plastic or cardboard tubes that flood the shelves of local big box stores.

Standard thin-point plastic nozzles are included in every new case of sausage packs. Hard to reach areas and job site conditions are made easier with a vast selection of specialty nozzles and extra parts, compatible with every model.
