OptiTec waterproof shop roofs and residential walkways in Brixton

OptiTec waterproof shop roofs and residential walkways in Brixton

This project in Brixton required waterproofing on shop roofs and residential walkways, so a quick-curing system was a must to keep any disruption to a minimum for the business owners and residents.

Specification – Systems Used

The contractor was looking for a long-lasting and quick-curing system with an aesthetically pleasing and seamless finish – even on the most detailed areas.

Therefore, OptiTec specified their OptiFlex-Rapid PMMA liquid waterproofing system to meet all of their requirements.

OptiFlex-Rapid is a fastest curing liquid system with a typical curing time of just 20 minutes – ideal for projects with limited timescales. This system is cold-applied, reinforced with 150gsm matting and is suitable for year-round application.

Build-up & Life Expectancy
The build-up specified for this project consisted of OptiTec's:

  • Self-Adhesive Primer
  • Self-Adhesive VCL (Vapour Control Layer)
  • OptiFlex-Rapid Liquid Base Layer
  • 150gsm Matting
  • OptiFlex-Rapid Liquid Top Layer

  • Overall, the system is estimated to have a life expectancy in excess of 25 years.

    Challenges Presented

    The only challenge usually presented during an installation such as this would be the amount of roof detailing required. However, using a liquid system such as OptiFlex-Rapid made this process far easier, as it can be applied using a roller or brush for a durable and precise finish, particularly on detailed roofs.


    As with all OptiTec projects, the team of OptiTec Approved Contractors ensured a professional installation with fantastic results!
