Acrpol Good Enough For You

Acrypol + revitalises the ‘vanity’ factory

For the refur­bis­hment and conversion of the former Elizabeth Arden Perfume Factory in Acton, now a Sapcote Devel­op­ments’ business centre and whose employees once included the legendary Elvis Costello, it was vital that the roof was made watertight using a tried and tested water­pro­ofing system. Offering reliability, easy application and a 5 year life expectancy, Acrypol + from the UK’s leading manufacturer of cold applied acrylic polymer waterproof solutions proved the ideal solution.

The duo pitched roof incorporated asbestos cement sheets which due to the complexities of removal required a roofing system which could not only be cold applied over the existing surface but also be applied during a wet winter. Supplied in Solar White colour, Acrypol + was brush applied over the surface and any asbestos fixings to provide a seamless and durable waterproof finish. For the exposed side and end laps to the asbestos sheeting, Acrypol flexible rein­for­cement scrim was applied with the entire roof being sealed with Acrypol AS8000 to provide a perfectly sealed membrane.

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 5 year specifi­cation of the Acrypol + repair system, the former Elizabeth Arden Perfume Factory is on track to open as a contemporary business centre in the summer of 2012 and will continue to offer watertight protection for many years to come.

So if Acrypol is good enough for the Elizabeth Arden Perfume Factory it’s good enough for you!
