Leeds Roofing Company are please to trial a New product to prevent cracking mortar often caused by movement within the roofs strutter.
Flexcrete’s Flexipoint is a pre-packaged, polymer modified, cementitious mortar for the rapid pointing of brick, stone, tile and other types of masonry. It is available in a range of shades which are designed to maintain their colour-fastness.
Flexipoint is a single component, cement based material incorporating the latest polymer and metakaolin technology which when mixed with water produces a pointing mortar for rapid application by gun or trowel. The aggregates have been specially selected and graded to allow smooth application and prevent segregation and locking under pressure whilst giving a high quality finish. It cures to form a durable, waterproof joint with enhanced polymeric properties which allows a degree of movement within the structure. It is available in a range of shades upon special request, which maintain their colour-fastness by utilising stable pigments and incorporating metakaolin to reduce efflorescence.

Waterproof: Contains metakaolin and water repellents to prevent ingress of water.
