Tuff Waterproofing, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of heavy-duty waterproof flat roofing, used UK Construction Week as the platform for the launch of its latest product innovation. This is a new single-resin GRP roofing system which offers an exceptional combination of flexibility and durability.
The company won Best Shell Scheme Stand at the UK’s largest construction event as it showcased the TuffStuff Flexible GRP. This is an extra-tough and seamless waterproof membrane which is designed for fast curing and application to a multitude of surface types and structures. Its single-resin system avoids the need to apply a separate base and topcoat.
TuffStuff Flexible GRP can be added to vertical sections without sagging and applied directly to felt, asphalt, single-ply, GRP, concrete, timber or metal. The product is crack resistant, with no risk of weak points, and uses granule hardener rather than liquid catalyst for safer and easier use. Its fast-curing qualities enable walk-on times of between 30 and 60 minutes.
‘The ideal opportunity’
Greg Gimenez, Managing Director of Tuff Waterproofing, comments: “Our expert product development team works closely with customers and our UK-based manufacturing facility to produce an evolving product range.
“UK Construction Week was the ideal opportunity to launch our latest introduction to the market, and we were delighted to receive the award for Best Shell Scheme Stand, which capped a very successful show.
“TuffStuff Flexible GRP received extremely positive feedback from visitors. They appreciated the advantages it offers as a one-pot solution. The product can also be used to overlay existing roofing, avoiding the time and cost involved in stripping back and replacing it.”
TuffStuff Flexible GRP is the latest in a wide range of Tuff Waterproofing products which are suitable for multiple flat roof applications. The company’s flagship product is its acclaimed TuffStuff® system, which uses the latest liquid polyester resins, glass fibre mat reinforcement and flexible edge trims to create a fully integrated 100% waterproof seamless finish.
