New StoCretec solutions save time and money on concrete repairs

Latest News Thu, Aug 3, 2017 3:13 PM

StoCretec, the European market leader in concrete repair and protection has launched three innovative new products into the UK market. StoCrete SM, StoCrete SM P and StoCrete RM F offer quick, proven and reliable solutions which save both time and money for a wide range of concrete repairs.

“When it comes to repairing small areas of damage to concrete surfaces, traditional repair solutions have involved the application of a number of different products which each need time to set before the next one is added,” comments Greg Astill, StoCretec’s UK Market and Product Manager. “In contrast, StoCrete SM, SM P and RM F are ‘system in a bag’ solutions. These StoCrete products cover the steps of corrosion protection, bonding coat, repair mortar and fairing coat in a single product, making them ready to receive a final coating just 4 hours after application. They provide a quick, practical and thoroughly reliable solution that saves both time and money.”




StoCrete SM is a 3-in-1 repair mortar which is simply applied, sponged down and is then typically ready to receive a top coat in just 4 hours. StoCrete SM P adds the benefit of corrosion protection, which saves even more time by eliminating the need for this to be carried out as a separate operation. Both products are rated Class R2 to EN 1504-3, and are available in 25kg sacks, or handy 10kg pails. Typically, once a sack has been opened the entire contents have to be used or discarded. The pail option greatly reduces wastage when performing occasional repairs, as small amounts of material can be used and the pail resealed.

StoCrete RM F offers a similarly impressive performance for flooring repairs when there is a need to repair small defects, produce fillets, falls, or level uneven areas quickly and easily. It provides superb workability, and is the ideal choice for smaller flooring jobs which require a quick fix with a reliable, professional finish. Rated as a class R3 to EN1504-3, StoCrete RM F is trafficable, impermeable to water and resistant to salt and frost. StoCrete RM F is also supplied in resealable pails, making it a convenient and economical option.

The three new products form part of the wider StoCretec range of concrete solutions which have recently been introduced to the UK for the first time. StoCretec has over 40 years’ experience in this field, and the full range of systems provide solutions for any type of project, from small concrete patch repairs, through to large-scale, sprayed mortar projects and high-performance industrial floor-coating systems.

“We were delighted to launch the full StoCretec range into the UK earlier this year,” adds Greg. “The many options within the range enable a concrete repair system to be tailored to suit the specific needs of any type of application, including building façades and structures, bridges and tunnels, power stations, industrial buildings and wastewater plants. The various products and systems provide outstanding strength, durability and security. They also allow specifiers and contractors to create high-quality solutions, from concrete renovations through to façade cladding, with all the components sourced from a single specialist supplier, and backed by warranties. As all StoCretec concrete renovation products conform to the EN1504 standard they can also be specified with full confidence.”
