New 15kg packaging for 851

Cementitious Coating 851 Now Available in Handy 15kg Packs

Flexcrete has launched one of its most popular and well proven products in a handy new size to meet customer demand. A new 15kg version of Cementitious Coating 851 in grey has been introduced, supplied as a composite inside a 15 litre plastic bucket complete with its own mixing vessel.

Cementitious Coating 851 is a highly advanced, two component, waterborne, cementitious modified polymer coating which is ideal for structural waterproofing or to reinstate concrete cover. Just 2mm is equivalent to 100m of good quality concrete. 851 is also available in a 30kg pack.

Ideal for the Water Industry

With a wide range of end applications such as roads and highways, structural waterproofing, coastal structures and water installations, the 15kg pack of Cementitious Coating 851 is particularly well suited for applications in the water sector where there is often a requirement for working in confined spaces. 851 is ideal for carrying out detail work and embedding our Cemprotec 2000-S waterproof reinforcing tape to seal over live cracks and expansion/construction joints. Independent approvals and certifications from the likes of the BBA, WRAS and compliance with BS EN 1504 Part 2, plus its listing under DWI Regulation 31 for drinking water applications, make Cementitious Coating 851 a popular product in the water sector.

A Protective Coating that’s Stood the Test of Time

Cementitious Coating 851 was originally introduced in 1985, and it still remains one of the most effective products for providing structural protection against chloride attack. Independent tests have confirmed that the product provides an effective barrier to chlorides for at least 28 years. In 1988, a 2mm thick film of Cementitious Coating 851 was applied to a concrete slice and sealed in a chloride ion diffusion cell and it is still going strong some 28 years (10,179 days) later. Ongoing tests carried out in the laboratory at the VINCI Technology Centre in Bedfordshire show that the barrier properties of 851 have not changed after a test period spanning the ongoing 28 years.
