Cementaid Everdure CALTITE System Hydrophobic and Pore‐blocking Ingredient (HPI) for membrane‐free, truly waterproof structural concrete

Whether it’s Cockermouth, Preston and Wigan or Cheltenham, Chertsey and Brighton, in the last 25 years Everdure Caltite has been used to provide waterproofing in over 500 hospitals and medical facilities in the UK.

Designed by Building Design Partnership, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, is a 1,200-bed tertiary NHS hospital. Over 3,000m3 of concrete containing Everdure Caltite was used to waterproof the basement slab, retaining walls and lift pits. The structural engineers were White Young Green (now part of Tetra Tech) with principal contractor Balfour Beatty.

The Evelina Children’s Hospital, part of St Thomas’ Hospital, London, designed by Michael Hopkins & Partners, where Everdure Caltite was used to waterproof the basement slab, retaining walls and lift pits. The structural engineers were Buro Happold with main contractor MJ Gleeson.

Phase 1 of the University College London Hospital has a deep basement, as shown in the photo, where Everdure Caltite was used for the waterproofing. Designed by Llewellyn Davies, the structural engineers were Clarke Nicholls & Marcel and main contractors Amec/Balfour/Haden Young Joint Venture.

A time-proven, practical system

Waterproof concreteThe Caltite waterproof concrete system is a time-proven, practical system that produces damp-proof, highly durable concrete which can be used either as a stand-alone system or incorporated as part of a dual system when required.

Everdure Caltite has a history with hospital developments going back to 1962 and that first hospital is still in operation today with the Caltite waterproofing performing just as it did in 1962.
