Winter weather can be harsh and make repair work challenging. By making external repairs now, you can avoid working outdoors in cold conditions.
From filling holes and cracks in walkways to repairing exterior walls and steps, our range of industry-leading formulas can prevent extreme weather from causing lasting damage and help keep your site safe. And, with cold curing, fast drying times and durable finishes, our specialist products make repairing your site quick and easy.
With Watco, your exterior will be prepared for when the harsh weather arrives and protected long after it has gone.
At this time of year, you can take advantage of the milder weather and better conditions for external repair work.
Repairing and preparing your site ahead of harsher winter weather can remove the need for costly repairs down the line.
As well as protecting your site, you’re protecting your employees. Carrying out essential external repairs will improve overall health and safety on your site.
Cracks and holes can appear in concrete from shrinkage or when trapped air forces itself to the surface. Regardless of how they occur, it’s important to repair concrete and prevent extreme weather from worsening the damage.
For small cracks between 2-5mm we recommend Fine Crack Filler Cold Cure. It is a liquid epoxy resin that is poured into the crack and easily smoothed off. For wider cracks, holes or smoothing uneven walkways we recommend Concrex Cold Set - a long-lasting formula that is virtually indestructible due to it having double the compressive strength of concrete.
When repairing holes on your site, you require specialist formulas.
For deep holes, Concrex Cold Set Deep Fill fills up to 100mm in 1 layer. Its tough, granite–hard finish is also ideal for smoothing uneven paths and repairing exterior steps. For a fast and strong repair, choose Flowpatch Sub Zero. Capable of taking forklift traffic just 2 hours after application, it can cure in temperatures as low as -20°C. Bitu-Mend Pothole Repair specialises in fixing potholes in asphalt and can be driven over immediately after being poured from the pack.
Carrying out repairs and maintenance will undoubtedly help your site weather the winter better. When it comes to health and safety there are lots more you can do to minimise accidents on your site this winter, including highlighting hazards.
Clearly highlight areas, items and machinery when it becomes more difficult to navigate in low-light conditions. Outline pathways, door entries, low clearance ceilings and other important areas that are in need of extra attention using our range of reflective Safety Tape.
Identify locations that are prone to being slippery or difficult to navigate by applying Tread Tapes to keep employees stable. Tread tapes are perfect for areas that have a tendency to ice over and are ideal for application on stairs, doorways and ramps.
Our leading range of polyaspartic products is on hand to coat your floor, even in icy temperatures. While Chemi-Coat Cold Cure provides a chemical-resistant coating, Safety Coat Cold Cure creates an anti-slip finish for walk-in fridges and cold stores. Our best-selling cold cure product, Cold Set Coating uses the latest polyaspartic resin technology to cure at -10°C, while our Polyaspartic Primer has been specially designed to work alongside Watco’s cold-curing range. With winter approaching, we have a cold cure coating for every project.
