Britannia Aquashield Primer is great for friable roofs that need sealing and protecting, such as asbestos cladding. Whether your warehouse roof cladding needs protecting or the concrete roof on your office block needs waterproofing, this primer will act as the perfect base on which to apply the topcoat. Will also prime fibre cement corrugated sheet, but 2 coats will be required in this case.
Because Britannia Aquashield Primer is toxic to aquatic organisms, this product should not be used near fishponds.
Product Use in the Workplace
- Library - If there's any building that can have its contents ruined by a leaking roof, it has to be a library. Even a small leak can cause a big problem; if water collects in one particular area of the roof, it has the potential to cause the ceiling to collapse, bringing a whole pool of water down all over the books.
- Factory - Industrial roofs are usually hard-wearing, but like all roofing, needs to be well-maintained. In addition to not falling down, a good roof is one that keeps the rain and moisture out of the building. Once water can get in through the roof, it has the potential to cause erosion on metalwork, increasing the chance of damp and mould. By ensuring factory roofs are adequately waterproofed, safety can be upheld and damage can be avoided.
