Scott Bader Exhibiting BBA Approved CrysticROOF GRP Roofing Systems at RCI 2014 Show, Ricoh Arena, Coventry 28-30 October

Scott Bader is exhibiting at the RCI (Roofing, Cladding & Insulation) Show 2014, taking place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry from 28-30 October (stand E03).   During the RCI Show, Scott Bader will be promoting its CrysticROOFÒ BBA Premier resin system, designed for producing seamless flat and pitched roofs, balconies, dorma windows and walkways, along with specialist fire rated and cold weather CrysticROOF topcoat products. 

CrysticROOF ‘BBA Premier’ is a cold-applied GRP roofing system, fully BBA approved, which is proven as a long-lasting, leak-free alternative to traditional roofing materials, such as bitumen, felt and lead, and comes with a 25 year guarantee if installed by a certified contractor.  The full range of CrysticROOF products is exclusively stocked by SIG Roofing Supplies in the UK, available nationally to roofing installers via local SIG outlets. Scott Bader is an associate member of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors and CrysticROOF BBA Premier is a recognised system under the Competent Roofer scheme. 

A new CrysticROOF fire retardant (FR) product, which is a specially formulated isophthalic FR topcoat, is now part of the ‘standard’ CrysticROOF system.  According to Scott Bader, by offering an FR rated GRP flat roof system as standard, it helps specifiers and contractors to avoid the risk of installing a system which does not meet the required fire safety and building regulations; the new standard CrysticROOF system with this FR topcoat now included meets BS476 Part 3, as well as providing guaranteed long term UV resistance and weathering performance.

Installers can lengthen the building season later in winter and earlier in the spring by using CrysticROOF COOLCure resin, providing approved installation procedures and guidelines are strictly followed. CrysticROOF COOLCure resin is chemically designed to fully react and harden even when applied in conditions as low as 50C when used with a suitable HBO-50 winter catalyst.  

All CrysticROOF resins and topcoats have been developed by Scott Bader’s R & D team of chemists, and are manufactured in Scott Bader’s UK plant in Northamptonshire to ISO 9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards and procedures. Scott Bader has over 60 years’ experience in polyester chemistry and advanced GRP systems for demanding building and construction, marine and transportation applications. Scott Bader is also an established speciality chemical emulsions supplier to major manufacturers of finished products for the building and decoration market such as: ceramic tile adhesives, sealants and caulks, primer systems, construction coatings and cement modifiers.
