As a gas resistant waterproof coating, Nitocote EP405 is suitable for application to below ground retaining wall and foundation structures including construction joints to maintain waterproofing and ground gas protection continuity as part of a waterproofing and ground gas protection solution conforming to BS8102:2009 and BS8485:2015.
Fosroc Nitocote EP405 enables continuity of waterproofing and ground gas protection to be achieved in locations where the use of sheet membrane products is not
feasible. It is compatible for use with the Proofex range of sheet membranes.
Fosroc Nitocote EP405 is also ideal as a protective coating suitable for lining and waterproofing potable water retaining structures and surfaces subject to contact with foodstuffs. The cured film is corrosion, chemical and abrasion resistant and is suitable for application to basements, tunnels, tanks, silos, reservoirs, water treatment works, breweries, dairies and meat and food processing plants. The cured film is non toxic and meets the requirements of BS 6920.
Available in blue and white.
