HydroBond is Here! Newton's Latest Innovation will be at Vision London 2015

The UK waterproofing suppliers have got a game-changing product on their hands, and they're going to show it off

Tonbridge, Kent: As the countdown continues to the 2nd and 3rd of June, Newton Waterproofing Systems can reveal more details of its involvement in the show, and the innovative new product that architects and specifiers will be treated to. Hosted at Olympia, Vision London is the industry-leading event through which new ways to achieve better building design and comply with changing legislation are presented. Newton's ingenious external waterproofing membrane, 403 HydroBond, will be at the forefront of this carefully curated exhibition of cutting-edge products, with an exhibition space in the exclusive New Product Zone, restricted to exhibitors presenting only the most innovative solutions from across the entirety of the built environment.

Managing Director Warren Muschialli is confident that attendees will be excited to see what Newton has to show and say: "Newton 403 HydroBond is unique. As a 'Type A' barrier waterproofing product defined by BS 8102:2009, it utilises contemporary materials and technologies in a potentially revolutionary way. Amongst numerous desirable properties, it combines mechanical bonding, self-healing capability, easy application, and flexibility in order to provide an external waterproofing barrier for use on any below ground or earth-retained stucture, from the smallest domestic basements to the largest civil engineering projects."

The product's practical benefits have already been trialled and proven in real-world situations, with approximately 10,000m2 already installed on domestic and commercial sites across Europe in 2015, including a development of 193 Crest Nicholson apartments and executive houses in Sunbury-on-Thames. Having fitted 403 HydroBond, Paul Dennison, Director of Buxted Construction who were the waterproofing contractor on this project, observed, "Newton HydroBond is a very robust, unique and easy to install system. I would not hesitate to recommend this superior product to our clients on future developments."

Newton's confidence in 403 HydroBond is further reinforced by BDA Agrément Certificate BAB 14-031/02/A, providing a gold-standard accreditation widely recognised by architects, specifiers and engineers across the industry, as well as by professional bodies including the National House Building Council and Local Authority Building Control. With the potential to provide a durable waterproof covering for the life of the building, HydroBond is best combined with other Newton products as part of a coordinated waterproofing solution. The education of others in the benefits and strengths of this combined approach, as well as the pitfalls of not doing so correctly, is something that is integral to the culture at Newton. Vision London attendees will therefore be given the opportunity to benefit from this philosophy too, as Newton Senior Technical Manager Richard Crossley hosts his expert seminar 'The Combined Waterproofing Approach' in Theatre 4 at 12:30 on Tuesday 2nd June.
