Delta Membranes has announced it has achieved the British Board of Agrément (BBA) certification for Koster NB 1 – a mineral coated waterproofing slurry containing crystallising and capillary-plugging agents.
It can be used for waterproofing against ground moisture and for both non-pressurised and pressurised water. NB 1 Grey is characterised by its incredible resistance to pressure and abrasion, as well as chemical and sulphate resistance.
Christopher Burbridge, Delta’s MD, commented: “The BBA’s certification of Koster NB 1 is a significant milestone for this excellent product, the symbol of quality and reassurances in our structural waterproofing solutions.
“We believe that this will provide Specifiers, Architects, Engineers and Contractors alike with even greater confidence when specifying Koster NB 1 into their structural waterproofing projects.
“We shall continue to lead the field in structural waterproofing and hope to continue our progress by having more products certified by the British Board of Agrément.”
The British Board of Agrément (BBA), is the UK’s major authority for the evaluation and certification of construction products. For manufacturers like Delta, for a product to achieve a BBA Approval, it must go through rigorous laboratory tests, on-site evaluations and thorough manufacturing assessments.
If the product successfully meets all criteria, it is awarded BBA Approval and Agrément Certificate.
BBA Approval is an independent assurance that a product will perform as the manufacturer claims it will. The BBA’s reputation for robust testing gives the NHBC, builders, specifiers, local authorities, and others in the industry reassurance a product is of a consistent quality, will perform and will last.
Delta’s current BBA Certificates (00-3742 and 18/5509) covers Approvals for Delta MS 20, MS 500, FM, PT and Koster Deuxan 2C. Also Delta’s Memtech M1 Gas Barrier and Memtech R1 Gas Barrier Certificate number 16/5367.
