Visqueen Building Products – part of RPC bpi recycled products – has launched a range of waterproofing liquid membranes that complies with all the latest changes in industry regulations while also meeting the precise needs of the company’s end-user base.
Visqueen Axiom liquid waterproofing range is the result of in-depth market research and a comprehensive development programme in the creation of a new advanced range which is suitable for multiple applications and gives superior performance over other solutions. It is also fully compatible with Visqueen’s full range of structural waterproofing products to provide a robust solution for specifiers and end-users.
The range meets all the criteria outlined in the BS8102, the code of practice for below-ground waterproofing, as well as the latest version of NHBC’s Chapter 5.4. Equally important, it satisfies key user requirements identified by Visqueen’s extensive customer research which specified that liquid membranes had to be easy-to-use and price competitive while delivering a high standard of technical performance.
The products provide solutions to many complicated below ground waterproofing applications, and ensure that surface or complex detailing such as irregular profiles and penetrations are fully sealed and waterproof. They can also waterproof porous surfaces such as blockwork in one coat.
In addition, Axiom Guard is a 1-part high performance liquid waterproofing membrane used for external tanking, basements and substructures. It offers the ability to be used straight from the tin, with no requirement for mixing or stirring. The liquid is easy to apply and the twin-coloured system ensures easy identification per coat, with excellent coverage rates and a thickening agent to enable self-supporting.
“The issue of ensuring complete waterproofing protection in complex construction details has long been a challenge on most building sites,” comments Phil Bull, Sales Director, Visqueen Building Products.
“The unique attributes of our Axiom range offer an advanced solution in line with all the latest regulations, while delivering excellent value and quality, to safeguard the integrity of a build in extreme conditions and difficult applications.”
The new Axiom liquid products complement other Visqueen high performance waterproofing ranges such as self-adhesive, torchon and pre-applied membranes to give customers an unparalleled choice for all waterproofing requirements.
