About Epicuro


About Epicuro

Epicuro provides superior performing cleaning and protective materials to architects, contractors and local Government.

We ensure our products are inherently safer for the contractors using them, those who live and work in the treated areas and the natural environment.

Founded in 2006, by Professor D. A. Chamberlain, with a mission of providing the construction industry with superior performing materials, we also invest heavily into the research and development of our cleaning, protective and waterproofing treatments.

We produce treatments with long guarantees and lifespans, ensuring you can cut down on the frequency of applying cleaning or protective treatments to the surfaces you are responsible for.

Our products contain little or no solvents and are non-toxic, ensuring there is as little impact on the environment as possible, helping you to meet sustainability targets.

All of our products come with high value, expert advice and a long manufacturer guarantee, helping you to save valuable time and money.

The team at Epicuro believes that product manufacturers should continuously aim to improve the quality of their products, eliminating worker hazards and reducing the negative impact on the environment.

We are currently working with Brunel University London and Nottingham Trent University to research new products which will reduce dependency on cement and hydrocarbon rich resins. Other research we are conducting with the universities focuses on sustainable techniques for the repair of potholes.

Oleonic

Penetrating the surface, Oleonic forms an invisible yet breathable barrier that repels water or oily liquids and resists road dirt, graffiti, salts, fuels, vegetation and other surface contaminants.

Additionally, Oleonic can remove pollutants present in outdoor air, breaking down most pollutants and purifying air. Photocatalysts attack glues surrounding particles such as soot or diesel particles, reducing the adhesion between the dirt and the surface. This enables rainwater to flush away the dirt, which in turn can reduce pollution.

Oleonic limits surface water retention, which combats moss and lichen infestation. It will prevent the return of efflorescence (the white salt substance) on brickwork, after removing deposits with Epicuro products and also protects against carbonation of concrete.

The product is used for protecting highway bridges and coastal structures, railway bridges and stations, public buildings, hospitals, offices, airport buildings, car parks, retail shops, schools, monuments and historic buildings.

An environmentally friendly, water-borne solution (non-toxic, solvent and silicone free), Oleonic is unlike other surface protection products, such as solvent or water based silanes.

Whilst guaranteed to be effective for 30 years, its predicted life reaches well beyond this.

HBG Facade protector


HBG Facade protector

Epicuro HBG penetrates the surface’s capillaries to form an invisible (but breathable) protective barrier that repels water, graffiti and other surface contaminants, ensuring your façade remains dry, clean and protected at all times.

Because rain water can no longer soak into the masonry it also improves the surface’s insulative properties and thermal resistance, resulting in less heat loss and energy saving.

The product is a non-film-forming impregnation product that leaves the treated surface permeable to air and water vapour. A colourless, surface treatment that does not change the appearance or alter the chemical composition of the treated surface. It is also a UV-resistant treatment, one that does not result in surface discolouration with age.

A surface treated with Epicuro HBG will keep cleaner, benefit from an increased lifespan and be easier to maintain.

HBG-HD


HBG-HD

HBG-HD ensures water and other common contaminants such as oil, grime, grease, bird droppings, chewing gum and algae cannot penetrate the pavement’s surface and instead sit on top of a protective barrier. This means that even basic cleaning operations will remove otherwise tough or problematic stains saving time, money and reducing disturbance.

It is quick and easy to apply and provides an extremely hard-wearing protective solution that is ideal for pavements that experience heavy footfall and contamination.

HBG-HD does not alter the appearance of the surface: while waterproofing pavement surfaces, it does not trap water in the surface. It doesn’t chemically alter or combine with the substrate; instead it achieves excellent adhesion, and doesn’t break down by exposure to sunlight or inclement weather.

Permbloc


Permbloc

Permbloc is non-toxic and completely solvent free, providing a much safer alternative to other chemicals and making it the ideal solution for enclosed spaces such as tunnels, lift shafts, underground car parks and basements.

And because it uses wet conditions to deliver dry ones, it eliminates the need to use heaters or dehumidifiers, avoiding unnecessary and expensive delays in drying-out projects.

Permbloc can be over treated with Epicuro HBG-ST to keep surfaces clean and dust free. Permbloc is a key element in the Epicuro ‘Moisture Blocking Method’, which tackles water ingress in a structured manner. This method combines various approaches to remediation to achieve the best outcome.

Chem-Crete PAVIX CCC100


Chem-Crete PAVIX CCC100

Chem-Crete PAVIX CCC100 keeps treated concrete reasonably dry, thus eliminating all water and moisture related deterioration.

Unlike water-based silanes, which are toxic according to the 48 Hour Acute Toxicity Test, Chem-Crete PAVIX CCC100 is both a user and environmentally safe product.

Chem-Crete PAVIX CCC100 delivers three effective mechanisms for concrete protection by formation of two types of crystals, together with a moisture repellence effect. In the presence of water, one crystal type swells to blocking surface pores until moisture disappears. The second crystal type helps to repel water from the surface. These hygroscopic and hydrophilic properties provide durable protection against the damaging effects of moisture penetration.

Chem-Crete PAVIX CCC100 combats water and moisture penetration under wet conditions but allows concrete to breathe under drying conditions.

Bimagrip


Bimagrip

Bimagrip-HD is a three component polyurethane ‘captive stone’ coating system that is both anti-slip and waterproofing. Available in a range of standard colours, it can be applied to concrete, asphalt, timber, steel and other types of surfaces.

Bimagrip-HD is ideal for both indoors and outdoors, where surface water and other liquids risk unsafe conditions for pedestrians and vehicles.
