A new lease of life for Renault
When the metal guttering at the Renault car showroom in Cardiff began to show signs of ageing, the company needed an economical and reliable way to repair it whilst ensuring the facility remained operational throughout.
Offering reliability, easy application and a 10 year life expectancy, Acrypol + from the UK’s leading manufacturer of cold applied acrylic polymer waterproof solutions proved the ideal solution for the world’s third largest automobile manufacturer.
With the roof’s perimeter gutters showing deterioration, Renault required a cost effective repair system that would prevent the need for a costly replacement. It was also vital that the sales centre and showroom remained open during the repair process to ensure business operations would not be compromised in any way.
To complete the 220M2 waterproofing application, as well as the cleaning and preparation of the surfaces, Renault appointed specialist contractor MCH Building and Roofing Limited with 30 years’ experience in the industry and having used Acrypol’s products on an extensive array of projects, MCH specified the tough and reliable performance of Acrypol +.
“We have been using Acrypol products since the company launched in 1986” said Martin Ham, Director of MCH Building and Roofing Limited. “We continue to work with Acrypol as they offer unrivalled expertise and product knowledge with the waterproofing and roofing industry”
Supplied in Solar White colour, Acrypol + does not require the contractor to use adhesives or bitumen on site, and therefore reduces health and safety risks especially associated with buildings which must remain fully operational during refurbishment.
Acrypol + provided immediate, tough and durable waterproof protection by stopping leaks and encapsulating the perimeter guttering. Any trapped moisture in the substrate was able to evaporate harmlessly into the atmosphere, allowing the product’s unique compound to bond quickly and efficiently.
Thanks to the 10 year specification of the Acrypol + repair system, supplied by the Cardiff branch of Travis Perkins and installed by MCH Building and Roofing, the Renault garage will continue to offer watertight protection to its staff, customers and stock of vehicles for many years to come.
