Product Details Supplier Info More products

Waterproofing, screeding and rendering products from Ronacrete have been approved, specified and used as part of a large, LEED-compliant building project in Manila, the Philippines.

The 155m-high Zuellig Building in Makati City comprises 33 storeys of office space, a three-storey retail annex and five storeys of basement car parking.

‘Green’ features of the building include double glazing and low-emissivity glass to minimise heat gain and energy loss; water efficiency through rainwater capture; very efficient drainage and irrigation systems; power-save lighting; CO2 sensors to ensure air quality; and centralised paper recycling.

Ronacrete products were used for waterproofing, screeding and rendering in basements, washrooms, roof areas, roof-level planters, lift lobbies, machine rooms, lift shafts and water tanks.

Products used

  • Unidri Super 20 waterproofing slurry — this was applied extensively to waterproof the reinforced concrete walls on all five below-ground storeys and to protect plant, machinery and parking areas
  • Ronabond PU 5 injection resin — this was used on the lowest basement level to rectify water leaks through day joints and fissures
  • Monoprufe WP Elastic waterproofing membrane and Ronafix Mix A mortar — these was applied to all water storage tanks to accommodate movement and to maintain a waterproof barrier, as well as to provide a protective layer to the waterproofing

  • Ronafix screed or render — the lift lobbies, machine rooms and lift shafts were treated with these
  • Ronaflex PU 1 sealant — this was extensively used around the building to provide a water-tight seal at joint details
  • Ronafix modified mortars — all exterior concrete pavers at ground level were bedded on these
  • Monoprufe WP Elastic waterproofing membrane and Ronafix mortar — these were used to waterproof and protect the water feature
  • Ronabond tile adhesive and Ronafix colour grout — these were used to bond and grout the black granite panels

Concrete repair and protection

The Ronacrete concrete repair range includes the industry renowned Ronafix Admixture for Concrete Repair, polymer modified repair mortars, a migratory corrosion inhibitor, a fairing coat, slurry coats, elastomeric and non-elastomeric decorative anti-carbonation coatings.

Hard landscaping

The Ronacrete hard landscaping range comprises Ronadeck resin-bound surfacing, Ronadeck resin-bonded surfacing and Ronadeck tree pit systems. These offer decorative, durable and attractive paving which can be laid on asphalt or concrete. The permeability of the resin-bound surfacing makes it an ideal surface for permeable asphalt, while the tree pit system is porous enough to keep tree roots well watered.

Available in a choice of finishes for driveways, paths, patios, swimming-pool surrounds, parks and gardens, podium decks, concourses, car parks, squares and footbridges, these products are used nationally and internationally for public building works, commercial development, housing projects and home improvement.

The screed range includes admixtures; polymer modified levelling screeds, wearing screeds, self-smoothing and floating screeds.
