Project Details

  • Client – Crest Nicholson
  • Contractor – Buxted Construction
  • Project Size – 2,000 m2

Newton 403 HydroBond

Newton 403 HydroBond was applied to provide a complete waterproof envelope to the structure to provide a Type A (barrier) waterproofing solution suitable for Grades 1, 2 and 3 as defined by BS8102:2009.

HydroBond is a very high performance composite sheet membrane that features a locking fleece to one side and a polymer hydrophilic coating to the other.

  • HydroBond is suitable for use around below ground reinforced concrete structures
  • The self-healing and fully bonded membrane protects the slab from water ingress via shrinkage cracks
  • Heavy objects can be placed on top of HydroBond – if the membrane is damaged/ punctured by 10mm or more a simple repair can be made by applying a patch and securing with HydroBond tape
  • Once HydroBond has been laid on to the oversite substrate, reinforcement steel can be placed on top ready for the concrete

Paul Dennison from Buxted Construction: “Newton HydroBond is a very robust, unique and easy to install system. Newton Waterproofing Systems provide training and backup where needed, which ensures the product is installed correctly, and makes certain that the final structure is fully waterproof. The directors and staff at Newton are helpful, friendly and very co-operative. I would not hesitate to recommend this superior product to our clients on future developments”.
