Four stages of concrete repair at St Saviours’ Estate
Products from Ronacrete’s RonaBond Concrete Repair & Coatings range were used for the repairs to six blocks of flats at St Saviours Estate, London SE1.
The project required repairs to the fabric of the buildings.
The areas of damaged concrete were cut out, and the exposed reinforcement was primed with Ronacrete Standard Primer and then re-primed before applying RonaBond HB40 high build polymer modified mortar.
The repaired areas were then made ready for decorative and protective coatings by the application of RonaBond Easy Skim FC. This is a pre-packed polymer modified mortar which is applied as a skim coat in thicknesses up to 3mm, to provide a smooth, hard finish to damaged, blemished and repaired concrete. It is a levelling mortar that provides a smooth “harder than plaster” finish to walls.
The final stage involved the application of decorative and protective coatings to the repaired surfaces. Two products were used at this stage, RonaBond Crack Bridging Anti-Carbonation Coating WB and RonaBond Anti-Carbonation Coating WB.
The RonaBond products greatly improved the integrity of the concrete and appearance of the flats on the St Saviour’s Estate, as well as providing protection from further corrosive damage for years to come.
