London’s construction supplier returns to the capital

Stand G72 at London Build Expo 2021 in November will see Fosroc International on hand to provide expert advice and an integrated approach on everything from product specification to installation.

It will be the fourth time Fosroc has exhibited at the show, which attracts many of the UK’s leading contractors, structural engineers, developers, architects and councils.

As one of the most well regarded and established British manufacturing brands for construction, Fosroc products have been used since the 1940s in the building and repair of landmark London structures. Fosroc’s Conbextra HF grout was used for the Palace of Westminster in 1980, and more recently in the 2000s Fosroc joint sealant was used for Wembley stadium, while Conbextra UW grout was used for the supporting columns of the Emirates Air Line cable car.

Today, Fosroc are involved in several major new build and refurbishment projects across London, providing waterproofing solutions, concrete repair and joint sealants. While the majority of products are sold through Fosroc’s distributor network, the team at Fosroc engage specifiers, engineers and architects early in the project stages to ensure full product support is readily available from the outset.

Waterproofing

Fosroc provided a comprehensive waterproofing solution for the new stations at Battersea and Nine Elms on the Northern Line. The Northern Line extension required a fully dry internal environment for a fully buried deep basement structure in a location with a high water table. The project presented some serious technical challenges and is a great example of Fosroc’s ability to problem-solve and adapt, while improving buildability for contractors.

Concrete repair

The Renderoc repair range is widely used for highways and car park repairs and the refurbishment of heritage buildings such as Mount Pleasant sorting office – as well as the remediation of defective new construction.

Joint sealants

The capital city’s airports are being supplied by Fosroc’s industry-leading runway joint sealant Thioflex 555, in addition to a range of Proofex waterproofing solutions for hangar facilities. Several of London sporting venues, including Spurs FC’s White Hart Lane and Lord’s cricket ground have been sealed using Fosroc’s trusted Nitoseal and Thioflex joint sealants.

Boasting an exceptionally broad range of innovative, specialist products, Fosroc offers tailored multi-system choices that are designed to work in harmony from both composition and practical application perspectives. Advanced products and technical expertise combine to provide a winning solution for London’s construction projects.
