General Building products – January 2021

Dry Bagged Mortar

Now available in 25kg waterproof, ready-mixed bags, Cemex’s M4 and M12 Natural Mortar is available in both a natural finish and in a wide range of colours. The material is suitable for brick laying, block laying, repointing, general masonry repairs and for laying patio and paving slabs. Additionally, M12 Natural Mortar is specifically designed for below ground and DPC environments where increased durability is required.


Flooring System

“Strong and providing a flooring covering that is both robust and cost-effective” is the verdict on Norbord’s CaberDek flooring from Welsh passive housebuilder, PYC Construction. Project Manager, Ben Wilson, explains: “We use 22mm CaberDek on the intermediate floor of all our projects as it provides a great structure for a floor when coupled with our posi-joint system.” The product is also designed to withstand the elements for up to 42 days between laying the floor and fixing the roof.


Slip Resistant Decking

Aluminium is the future of decking, according to Endurawood. Easy to fit, strong, durable and slip resistant, this wood alternative will not collect mould, algae and fungus, and water cannot soak through it, taking the hassle out of maintenance and increasing the safety of the people that use it. The company’s timber effect powder coated aluminium products include cladding, decking and architectural feature battens.

Decking Boards

It’s the flush insert that provides a smooth and continuous look to the 150 Aqua-Channel decking boards from EnviroBuild. If a continuous look is not desired, a gap insert can be used to create a more traditional look of gapped individual boards. The powder coating delivers a high level of non-slip resistance, together with enhanced durability.

Timber Panel

Smartply Max FR B from Medite is the first Euroclass B board – the maximum Euroclass rating for a timber panel – manufactured in the UK and Ireland to feature wood flakes treated with flame retardant solution before pressing. This ensures its flame retardance is integral and maintains its structural integrity, unlike many post-treated alternatives, making it the safer choice for use within timber frame construction.


Matt Paint

Its most technologically-advanced anti-scuff formulation yet is what Dulux Trade is claiming for its Scuffshield Matt. Creating a really smooth surface at a microscopic level is the key to lessening scuffing on walls. As a result, it reduces the impact of plastic and rubber materials on the paint surface. Decorators can offer this hard-wearing water-based emulsion to both commercial and domestic customers.


To complement the recently launched Seal It Liquid Membrane, Bond It has now introduced an additional element to the system to combat the onset of the winter months. Seal It Accelerator is a gel-like additive that, once mixed with the Seal It Liquid Membrane, accelerates the curing process. This allows for installations to be carried out at temperatures below 5oC and permits work to be performed down to a minus 20oC.


Clay Tiles

Combining a heritage appearance with 21st century performance, the BMI Redland Rosemary Clay Classic tile, proved ideal when architect Gordon Delgano wanted to refurbish his mid-terrace house in an architecturally distinguished area of Glasgow. Suitable for pitches ranging from 35o to 90o, these tiles are often used for restoration and refurbishment projects and for new-build developments linked to conservation areas.



HB42 Ultimate Liquid Grab is a powerful trade-strength adhesive for use on a wide range of materials. Suitable for all vertical and full surface bonding applications, the material can be used when bonding shower wall panels, splash backs and cladding tiles. The product is also appropriate for bonding tile on tile and stainless steel.
