NEWTON WATERPROOFING SYSTEMS
The Newton Waterproofing Index is a revolutionary new specification system that combines the British Standard definitions with the type and quality of structure and the type of waterproofing protection used. By taking into account the competency of the installation it gives an easy to understand waterproofing score for any project. The very highest scores qualify as Newton Protected Basements which are supported with an industry leading 10-year guarantee from an A-rated UK insurer.
Newton 203-RM is a single-component, fast-setting, Portland cement-based structural mortar, used primarily for the durable repair of concrete. Ideal for roads, runways, bridges, decks, floors and footpaths. Setting in just 10 minutes at 20ºC, Newton 203-RM is ideal for areas that cannot be taken out of service for long periods, or where the concrete is subjected to heavy wear such as roads, runways, bridges, decks, floors and footpaths.
Every year, hundreds of tonnes of unused off-cuts of virgin and recycled cavity drainage membrane is sent to land-fill by the UK waterproofing industry, as there were no recycling facilities capable of collecting and recycling the materials. These high-quality HDPE and HDPP membranes are designed to last for the lifetime of the buildings in which they are installed, however this means that they are also definitely not designed to be environmentally friendly or biodegradable. In response, Newton Waterproofing Systems have developed the Newton Membrane Recycling Service, the UK waterproofing industry's very first closed-loop process for collecting, recycling and reusing the waste created by the installation of our cavity drain membranes. Watch our launch video to find out more about the service, and what contractors, developers, architects and recycling organisations think about it.
Newton Waterproofing. Whatever you're building, Newton have a range of products and services to ensure effective waterproofing - from small domestic projects through to high-end residential properties, commercial buildings and large scale civil projects too.
Oldroyd Xtf is the number one sustainable fireproof and waterproof solution for underground projects. Produced in Norway by specialist manufacturer Oldroyd, it contains only environmentally friendly raw materials and is thoroughly tested in challenging Norwegian and Faroese tunnels. Oldroyd Xtf membrane is tested according to the EN 13501 standard for ‘Fire classification of construction products and building elements - Part 1: Classification using data from reaction to fire tests’. As a result, the membrane is classified to B-s2.d0, meaning it completely prevents burning droplets when exposed to fire. Watch our Xtf fire testing videos for more information. Oldroyd are specialist UK product partners with Newton Waterproofing Systems, and the Oldroyd Xtf membrane is distributed exclusively in the UK via Newton.
Ground water flooding is a hidden but ever present danger in many parts of the UK, and putting preventative solutions in place is the best way to ensure properties are kept safe. At Newton Waterproofing Systems, we offer a completely integrated service, from initial consultations and design meetings, to site support and guaranteed installation by our professional installers.
Newton 103-S is a two-component, polymer-modified, cementitious waterproofing membrane with high adhesion and high chemical resistance. Newton 103-S is therefore designed for the internal and external waterproofing of concrete and steel elements of water retaining and water-resisting structures.
Basement waterproofing with Newton System 500 cavity drain membranes, drainage and pumps. Unlike conventional 'tanking' Newton System 500 basement waterproofing solution places designed maintainable depressurisation voids at known weaknesses in the structure so problem water is simply captured and diverted out of the property. Newton System 500 is one of the easiest basement waterproofing systems to understand and specify, and is recognised by the British Standard and industry experts as the "least likely system to fail"
The King Edward VII Galleries is a Grade 1 listed structure and part of the iconic British Museum complex in London. Constructed between 1907 and 1914, the building sits above a series of tunnels and ventilation shafts, which serve to supply air to the gallery via an external ventilation unit. Due to water ingress in the tunnels, there was serious concern as to the quality of air supplied to the gallery, and the impact that this might have on the artefacts kept there. THE PROJECT Newton worked directly with Arti Structural Waterproofing and Oldroyd to provide a solution that would protect the tunnels against water ingress and fire, and allow the tunnels to be re-instated as the primary air supply to the galleries above. This involved cleaning and repairing the tunnel walls and floors, then installing a permanent waterproofing and fire-rated solution to achieve a Grade 2 environment as per BS 8102:2022 and also meet the British Museum’s fire strategy.
Newton FlexProof-X1 is a single component liquid waterproofing material which forms a membrane that is rainproof in minutes and capable of handling severe building movement Key Benefits: No mixing required – simply open the packaging and use. Can be used in sub zero temperatures and on slightly damp substrate. No primer required – saving on primer and labour costs. 100% waterproof, but allows vapour diffusion. Very flexible – Resistant to movement and fissures in substrate Excellent adhesion to suitable substrates. Resistant to temperature variations maintaining its characteristics between -40ºC & 90ºC. Excellent resistance to the high alkalinity of concrete.
Newton Waterproofing. Rising damp is the upward flow of moisture from the ground through the porous structure of a wall. Newton's practical and effective rising damp solution acts both to stop the water at its source and to prevent the damaging effects of rising damp from occurring again.
Newton 107F is a two-component, cementitous waterproofing membrane, with a polymer-rich composition that enables it to maintain its elastomeric properties, even under immersed conditions. Newton 107F is therefore ideally suited and especially capable where the structure has both masonry and concrete elements, and where differential movement can be expected.
