membrane that is completely UV stable. This helps to avoid potential problems of inter-coat adhesion, thin spots or delamination.

Making the grade As valuable, long-term assets, educational buildings demand waterproofing solutions that will stand the test of time. The versatility of liquids combined with their installation and performance benefits ensure the refurbishment and construction of flat roofs are delivered quickly, efficiently and to the highest standards.
