We are delighted to announce the achievement of the British Board of Agrément (BBA) certification for NB 1 (19/5619i1). Koster NB 1 is a mineral coated waterproofing slurry containing crystallising and capillary-plugging agents. It can be used for waterproofing against ground moisture and for non-pressurised and pressurised water. NB 1 Grey is characterised by its excellent resistance to pressure and abrasion as well as chemical and sulphate resistance.
Christopher Burbridge, Delta’s Managing Director said,
“The BBA’s certification of Koster NB 1 is a significant milestone for this excellent product, the symbol of quality and reassurances in our structural waterproofing solutions. We believe that this will provide Specifiers, Architects, Engineers and Contractors alike with even greater confidence when specifying Koster NB 1 into their structural waterproofing projects.
We shall continue to lead the field in structural waterproofing and hope to continue our progress by having more products certified by the British Board of Agrément”.
Who is the BBA and what is BBA Approval?
The British Board of Agrément (BBA), is the UK’s major authority for the evaluation and certification of construction products. For manufacturers (such as Delta) to achieve BBA Approval for a product, the product must go through rigorous laboratory tests, on-site evaluations and thorough manufacturing assessments. If the product successfully meets all the criteria it is awarded BBA Approval and Agrément Certificate.
Why is BBA product Approval so important?
BBA Approval is an independent assurance that a product will perform as the manufacturer claims it will. The BBA’s reputation for robust testing gives the NHBC, builders, specifiers, local authorities, and others within the industry reassurance that a product is of a consistent quality, will perform and will last. As the British Board of Agrément say,
“BBA products won’t let you down!”
