Fosroc: Building, Cementing & Supporting

  • Proofex Engage: Fosroc premier waterproofing system, mechanically bonds to concrete meaning that it can be applied in the precast factory, arriving on site already firmly attached to the panels.
  • Nitoproof: Above ground waterproofing roofs, balconies and podium decks can be made watertight using Nitoproof liquid-applied membranes.
  • Fosroc Polyurea WH 200: Where rapid return to service is required then a spray-applied fast curing system such as Fosroc Polyurea WH 200 is an excellent choice.
  • Dekguard E2000: High performance elastomeric, protective anticarbonation coating for concrete and masonry.
  • Cemtop: For Screeding & Flooring, Cemtop cementitious screeds are available for a wide range of applications and are ideal for floors constructed from precast beams or panels where the joints are pre-filled. Cemtop can provide benefits such as high strength, fast return to service and excellent durability.
Solutions for Flexible Seals & Joints
  • Nitoseal MS100: Specially formulated for façade joints, Nitoseal MS100 has a high movement accommodation factor. Its unique formulation makes it incredibly easy to use, even in cold conditions, with no stringing and an excellent finish. Will not stain concrete or stone facades and may be applied to concrete without a primer.
  • Nitoseal MS60: A general purpose joint sealant with excellent UV resistance and colour stability. It can be applied primer less to concrete substrates.
  • Nitoseal PU40: This single part polyurethane joint sealant with excellent versatility for a variety of applications.
