TREMCO MMA Technology Selected for Leeds Roof Refurbishment

Products from TREMCO's MMA Rapid Cure Roofing System range have helped save time and money for a busy contractor. 

 Merseyside specialist, Wirral Cladding & Roofing, was awarded the contract to replace a flat-roof system on the 15-year-old, Grade A two-storey building near Leeds city centre.

Firstly, the team prepared the roof to accept TREMCO's CP380 Rapid Cure Membrane followed by CP930 MMA Waterproof Sealer.

 The building itself is only about fifteen years old but the employer required a new 20- year manufacturer-backed guarantee," explains Wirral Cladding's joint Managing Director, Peter McDonald.

The work was carried out over a two-week period in winter and despite the cold, wet weather, Wirral Cladding managed to complete the work within the scheduled time-period – “that's because we chose the TREMCO system," explains Peter.

CP380 is a heavy-duty waterproofing system based on polyurethane modified methacrylates. It is ideal for the repair, renovation and waterproofing of roof systems and can also be used for the waterproofing of construction details.

"One of the biggest challenges was working around all the plant installed on the roof. The TREMCO system was ideal as it easily coped with the tricky upstands and produced seamless corners with no joints," says Peter.

The main advantage, however, was the system's speed of installation, "We were working alongside other trades, mainly M&E contractors, who needed access to the roof. Instead of having to leave the membrane to cure for 24 hours, we just locked the doors behind us and in two hours we could let other trades up on the roof," says Peter.

 CP380 cures in just 30 minutes at 15 degrees celcius, can even be applied in freezing temperatures and, as Peter says, can be trafficked in two hours. It produces a highly flexible membrane with excellent crack bridging performance and is both 100% waterproof and UV protected.
