Kemper System’s Kemperol 2K-PUR solvent-free and odourless waterproofing membrane has been used to refurbish an 85 metre high food silo on London’s River Thames.
Working in conjunction with Capital Roofing Co Ltd of Blackheath in Greenwich, the client, ADM UK, needed a swift refurbishment of one of its silos containing linseed, as water was leaking in. Capitol Roofing Co Ltd chose Kemperol 2K-PUR to refurbish the roof and expansion joints around the perimeter of the silo because of its ease of application and difficult to access project location.
The contractors were able to install Kemper’s liquid system on top of the existing felt roof. After cleaning and priming the substrate, the Kemperol 2K-PUR resin was then applied in a single, wet-on-wet process. Because of the exposed location of the silo, contractors were faced with high winds during installation. The handling and laying of sheet membrane materials would have increased the health and safety risk, so Kemper’s two-component liquid applied system was ideally suited to the conditions.
Chris Shulver at Capital Roofing Co Ltd, said: “This tricky project required a durable waterproofing solution that was quick and easy to apply given the location of the silo. Not only did Kemper’s Kemperol 2K-PUR system offer these benefits, but we could also provide peace of mind to the end client that the solution would ensure a completely seamless and durable waterproofing solution for many years to come – even in its exposed location".
