Chemical expertise and customer service combine to deliver the goods [

ONE OF THE familiar presences at this year’s London Build show will be Fosroc. Founded on long expertise in chemical engineering, Fosroc’s broad range of products includes waterproofing, sealants, concrete repair, grouts and anchors, and concrete admixtures. The Fosroc brand has become synonymous with innovative engineered solutions in the construction sector, delivering world-class, chemical-based products and materials to new build and refurbishment projects worldwide. In the UK Fosroc operates across a broad crosssection of markets, supplying infrastructure projects, stadia, industrial sites and power plants – as well as high-rise construction and refurbishment projects. What sets Fosroc apart, however, is its capacity to respond to challenges that require innovative, tailored solutions. Working together with architects, structural engineers, contractors and owners the company formulates products that are not only fit for purpose, but also meet and exceed standards in safety, sustainability and performance.

That was exactly how Fosroc developed its new, rapid-curing Thioflex 555 runway joint sealant. Working in collaboration with applicators and end customers, the company’s team developed a product which can seal more metres in less time, saving time and money in airside closures. Fosroc’s National Sales Manager, Tim Mole explained: “At Fosroc we don’t just strive to perfect our products, we take a broad approach to projects. Working closely with clients to build partnerships, we aim to eliminate inefficiencies, manage risk and add value to projects by providing specialist advice and technical support across the entire supply chain. “By being integral to the design, specification and project scheduling stages, we are able to formulate bespoke solutions that are not only time and cost effective, but safe, sustainable and long-lasting. Our involvement at an early stage in these crucial conversations costs nothing, but can be invaluable in the end.” That approach underpins their successful partnerships in major construction projects,

such as Crossrail’s Victoria Dock. Following initial discussions with the design teams and client, Fosroc’s highly experienced staff produced a waterproofing solution using Supercast PVC waterstop and Supercast SW hydrophilic waterbar. Other materials, including special Supercast PVC angles, were hand-made at the company’s Tamworth manufacturing plant. After passing the scrutiny of the Crossrail approvals team the materials were used on the project’s C340 phase and subsequently on other rail projects. Support was also given to the installing contractor, including presenting a series of ‘toolbox talks’, which included full training on the materials and equipment to be used. Marcin Nowak, C340 project manager for Taylor Woodrow, commented: “The Fosroc brand is always taken under consideration, due to the quality which follows it on both materials and documentation.” q • You can visit Fosroc on Stand C61 at London Build 2016 or for further information visit the website at www.fosroc.com.
