They can be applied in enclosed environments with absolutely no disruption to other trades and daily routines can continue as normal to keep downtime to an absolute minimum. Flexcrete materials are designed to meet even the most stringent environmental objectives. Environmental Performance Since the early 1980s Flexcrete has pioneered the use of waterborne technology to develop its products and that philosophy remains the mainstay of the company today. 5 Sustainability Sustainability is a core value at Flexcrete and we are 100 committed to ensuring that our operations are conducted in a sustainable manner by adhering to eco-efficient principles.

Primers are not required and packs can be split and simply mixed with water. Our range includes Monomix mortars easily applied up to 80mm in a single application Fastfill which is designed to allow rapid return to service especially in heavily trafficked areas and our lightweight mortar Monolite. For a decorative protective finish our anti-carbonation coatings are water-based environmentally friendly and available in a wide range of attractive colours. With a design life of 10-15 years before first maintenance Monodex coatings provide years of protection against general weathering carbonation and water ingress yet allow damp substrates to breathe without blistering or delaminating. A Wide Range of Engineered Solutions Supported by an extensive international track record and a technical pedigree which is second to none Flexcrete is the solution provider of choice for construction industry professionals. 9 Concrete Reinstatement and Finishing As well as offering products for refurbishment projects our materials are specified to increase durability on new construction. Our technical mortars and high performance cementitious coatings present an ideal solution to non-conformance with specification. Not only do they reinstate cover they also provide structures with additional protection against freezethaw cycles de-icing salts water and chloride ion penetration thus ensuring the life span of the structure is either achieved or extended. Surfaces can be finished with our Monolevel waterproofing renders and fairing coats and our Unimatch mortar is ideal for repairs which need to be matched to the parent concrete. Finally our Monodex decorative membranes can be applied overall internally or externally to provide an aesthetic yet highly durable protective finish. Waste Water Treatment Works Ashford. Designed to offer the ultimate waterproof protection and resist 10 bar water pressure to meet the demand of deep level construction.

Our cementitious coatings are designed to offer the ultimate waterproof protection and resist 10 bar water pressure to meet the demands of deep level construction. Designed for application in damp environments their ultra-low VOC content also makes them ideal for use in confined spaces. Products in our range also provide excellent chemical resistance when applied to areas such as bunds or dirty water installations and when used in new construction specialist linings can be applied without waiting for a full cure of the substrate concrete. 10 Overcoming Todays Construction Challenges Solutions Enhanced Durability for Concrete and Steel We offer a range of highly engineered products to enhance durability and extend the service life of both concrete and steel in particularly demanding conditions. Our cementitious coatings are CE marked to EN 1504 and provide excellent barrier properties against acidic gases water and chlorides with added resistance to chemicals abrasion and impact. Where chloride ingress is to be arrested a 2mm application of Cementitious Coating 851 provides a practical solution and where low cover is detected it will confer the equivalent of 100mm of concrete cover. Epoxy modification extends the use of products such as Cemprotec E942 to include stand-alone corrosion protection for ferrous metals including marine sheet piling or other environmentally sensitive projects such as London Underground as well as for enhancement of chemical and abrasion resistance. Waterproofing of Roofs and Other Deck Areas Our high build waterborne liquid roof coating Roofdex HB provides total weatherproof protection on both flat and pitched roofs. Equally suited for refurbishment and new build projects it is compatible with a wide range of roofing substrates including asphalt felt and concrete.
