Nu-Patch epoxy repair mortar; Nu-Guard anti carbonation coating
BioPark, the science and technology development in Welwyn Garden City, required a complete facelift to the exterior. The existing mosaic tiles and concrete were discoloured, giving a dull and dirty appearance, and were in need of various repairs.
Hydron cleaning solutions were used to powerwash the whole of the exterior of the building, and all defective tiles and cracks were repaired using Nu-Patch epoxy repair mortar.
The coating selected was Nu-Guard anti-carbonation coating, formulated using nanotechnology.
The three-month contract was undertaken by Armour Contracts, who operate throughout London and the Home Counties.
Steve Read, General Manager for BioPark, said: “The benefits of using this unique coating are that our building will remain clean and give a freshly decorated appearance for years to come due to the self cleaning properties of the coating. All cleaning and coating products used on this contract are manufactured by Hydron who visited site during all stages of the project to ensure that the coatings were applied in accordance to the specification. We are extremely pleased with the final result.”
