Local paint manufacturer Tor Coatings were approached to create the new shade of blue chosen by the tenants. Tor Coatings conducted a site survey which involved thoroughly testing the existing substrate to ensure any recommended system was fully compatible.

Unicover EMF was specified for the project. The system is a single pack, breathable elastomeric water based coating system designed for high performance decoration and waterproofing of exterior masonry such as cement, concrete and cementitious renders. The system’s high elasticity and high solids content permits effective bridging of hairline cracks and imparts excellent breathability without flaking or cracking. Unicover EMF has a high level of resistance to biological attack and early resistance to rain, which provides an excellent barrier to water penetration.

The project was carried out by Gateshead HMO, with site support from the Tor sales and technical service team.

In addition to the comfort of having a 25 year BBA accreditation, the system provides flexible, durable, long-lasting protection for up to 10 years before first full maintenance. During this period, we will continue to carry out regular scheduled inspections to ensure that the performance is delivered for the client.
