Tuff Waterproofing, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of heavy-duty waterproof flat roofing, will showcase its latest product developments at UK Construction Week (UKCW) taking place at the NEC in Birmingham from 9-11 October.
The UK’s largest built environment event, UKCW brings together 35,000 construction professionals and over 650 exhibitors with nine shows across three days, including Grand Designs Live and the Build Show. Tuff Waterproofing’s stand (B480) will feature Tuff Tech Pro VP/UV, a new seamless and waterproof polyurethane membrane which the company has launched primarily for the commercial market. Providing an advanced fast-curing formulation which significantly reduces time and labour on site, the product is a cost-effective solution for new or existing flat roofs, walkways, balconies and gutters.
Also on show will be Tuff Waterproofing’s flagship product, TuffStuff GRP roofing, which uses the latest liquid polyester resins, glass fibre mat reinforcement and flexible edge trims to create a waterproof seamless finish which is fully integrated and ideal for new OSB timber boards and overlay systems.
Greg Gimenez, Managing Director of Tuff Waterproofing, commented:
“Tuff Waterproofing enjoyed a very successful appearance at last year’s UK Construction Week and we are excited to be returning to the NEC for this stand-out event in the industry calendar. Product development is a major part of Tuff Waterproofing’s business strategy and UK Construction Week represents the ideal platform to introduce new innovations to stakeholders across every facet of design and build.
“We are expecting an excellent response to this year’s launch, Tuff Tech Pro VP/UV. It’s a high-build, elastomeric, moisture-triggered polyurethane membrane which can be cold-applied, even in adverse weather conditions, for adhesion to a range of substrates, including bitumen membranes, asphalt, metals, brick and concrete. It is completely dry within eight hours and fully cured within 24 hours of application, with excellent wetting out and moulding capabilities to accommodate complex shapes and details.
“Many UK Construction Week visitors will already be familiar with TuffStuff, which has become one of the UK’s leading brands of its type. The product offers a host of advanced features including vapour permeability, flexibility throughout its service life and a totally seamless barrier with no welds or joints. It’s also cold-applied, with no heat used during installation, and has built-in solar reflectivity, providing superb thermal and UV stability for all climatic conditions.”
