Concrete Repair, Protection & Waterproofing

Flexcrete Technologies is the UK’s leading independent manufacturer of engineering quality technical mortars and high performance coatings. Our products are available both in the UK and from international distributors around the world.

We develop our products using advanced waterborne technology, so they cure without the release of hazardous solvents or odour and are the environmentally friendly option.

As the first British manufacturer to achieve CE Mark registration in compliance with EN1504, the pan European standard for concrete repair, our products can be relied upon with absolute confidence.

Whatever your construction project, we have the specialist products, expert knowledge and technical support to assist.

We provide innovative solutions for the following applications:

  • Concrete repair - structural and cosmetic
  • Decorative anti-carbonation protection

It’s Official: Flexcrete's Cementitious Coating 851 Stops Chlorides for 24 Years

It’s Official: Flexcrete's Cementitious Coating 851 Stops Chlorides for 25 Years

The ability of one of our core products - Cementitious Coating 851 - to prevent chloride ingress is an important consideration in many projects and now we have the evidence to prove that 851 stops the penetration of chlorides for almost a quarter of a century.

Back in 1988, a 2mm thick film of Cementitious Coating 851 was applied to a concrete slice and sealed in a chloride ion diffusion cell in the laboratory at the VINCI Construction Technology Centre and it is still going strong some 25 years later. Tests recently carried out show that the barrier properties of 851 are such that a steady state of flux of chloride ions through the coated concrete has not been attained after a test period spanning 25 years, whereas the control concrete achieved this in just 28 days.

Chloride attack is one of the primary causes of damage in reinforced concrete structures exposed to de-icing salts and marine environments. When a certain threshold of chlorides is reached at the concrete-reinforcement interface, the steel rebars start to corrode.

As this test shows, 851 has remarkable resistance to chloride attack. It is a product that has been chosen for prestigious projects all around the world, not only for its chloride resistance but also its diffusion resistance to oxygen and carbon dioxide. Furthermore, it has exceptional waterproof protection, resisting positive and negative pressure under a 100 metre hydrostatic head. Flexcrete's Cementitious Coating 851 has been used at King’s Cross Station in London, Doha Corniche in Qatar and the Kwai Chung Container Terminal in Hong Kong, to name a few.

Worldwide Demand for Flexcrete Products Leads to Expansion

To meet increased demand for its range of products from home and overseas markets, Flexcrete has extended its manufacturing complex in Leyland, Lancashire, by acquiring an additional 2500m² of industrial space adjoining its existing facility.

The new buildings have been extensively refurbished and extended and a dedicated Technical Centre has been constructed, housing new Research and Development Laboratories and a Training Suite for Flexcrete customers.

New state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment is in place to manufacture a range of high performance products, including the MONODEX range of coatings for the external and internal protection of buildings and other structures and BIODEXcoatings for internal walls and ceilings in hygiene sensitive environments such as hospitals and food manufacturing facilities. The new MONODEX and BIODEX products have been produced following extensive in-house research utilising the most modern chemistry available, and sales have already been achieved in Asia and the Americas, as well as to European markets including Cyprus, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Norway and Sweden.
