Peter J Smyth - The Institute of Clerks of Works & Construction Inspectorate of GB Inc

I would like to thank your company for the excellent CPD presentation that was given by your Phil Richardson. Phil soon demonstrated he is well aware of the value and technical qualities of your products and the problems associated with poor detailing and workmanship, he also had a pleasant way of passing on the merits to other people, so please pass on our sincere thanks for a very interesting and technical lecture. Can I also take this opportunity to thank you for the buffet that was presented, and was enjoyed by all of the members present!

Steve Richings - Edwards Diving Services Ltd

The fast setting time and high early strength of the NATCEM 35 repair mortar was the ideal solution, enabling a number of layers of application within the available working window. The repairs were ultimately completed ahead of time and to the satisfaction of the customer.

Tony Hart - Sellafield Ltd

Many thanks for an excellent CPD presentation which we found of great interest and of value to our company. The initial feedback from all attendees was extremely favourable with positive comments regarding your knowledge and experience of the product, coupled with a great delivery style, which gave a high education value to the presentation.

Philip McKay - Aberdeenshire Council

The material has been used for small concrete repairs, external plastering and pointing work around MacDuff, Banff, Portsoy and Rosehearty harbours. The material is very easy for site staff to prepare as there are no additives or mixing requirements. The waterproofing nature of the material is also attractive to use around the harbour. From our, albeit limited use of the material I would have no hesitation in recommending it for use as a concrete repair product in the marine environment.

Tony Plant - V.A. Crookes LTD

We have used NATCEM 35 and NATCEM AC on a wide variety of projects from schools and commercial properties to domestic dwellings. It has generally been used for concrete repairs to columns, beams and other concrete elements. Its main advantage over other proprietary concrete repair products is its use where temporary formwork is being used. The rapid setting properties of NATCEM allows formwork to be stripped the same day instead of having to return to site again the next day.

Jack Knight - Haswell Consulting Engineers

We have used Natural Cement on two recent projects for the refurbishment of Sugar Loaf Tunnel for Railtrack Great Western Zone and the upgrading of Winchester Tunnel for Railtrack Eastern Zone. From our experience, the material used in sprayed concrete work, had very low rebound properties, high early strength and excellent adhesive properties even in very wet conditions. We are very pleased to recommend the use of the material and can confirm that it is our intention to specify this material for use in any further refurbishment works we may have in the future.

Ivan Chudleigh - London Underground

Over the past few years, a number of projects have been undertaken for our company during which Natural Cement products were used. These projects have all been successfully completed within the difficult constraints of time and access which control all works on the operational railway. We are writing to express the high regard that has developed within our organisation for Natural Cement products and to record our appreciation for the high quality of service that your company provides.

John Aveling - Managing Director - Galeforce Civil Engineering Limited

First introduction to Natural Cement was a water authority contract for Yorkshire Water at Dunford Bridge near Holmfirth. The specification was for SHOTCRETE 513 due to its WAA status. The environmental considerations were paramount, and it’s inert nature and short curing times were fundatmental in its inclusion in the restrictive specification, which was for slope stabilisation on a primary drinking water reservoir. Since the successful completion of this contract, SHOTCRETE 513 has been our first choice for dry sprayed material within enviromentally sensitive areas such as rivers or water authority structures. An example of this was the limestone canal tunnels contract in Dudley, West Midlands, where SHOTCRETE 513 was sprayed onto the roof of unstable limestone tunnels for stabilisation.

Mike Dunn - Senior Surveyor, Timberwise

We have been regular users of NATCEM 35 since 2004. The fast setting and waterproof properties make Natcem an invaluable part of many of our specifications. Natcem is particularly useful in maximising productivity and reducing waiting times which enable us to complete some smaller jobs within a day, which might otherwise take two to do and in providing a general purpose repair, filler and screed repair mortar. All of our technicians carry at least one bag on their vans at all times and a stock is held in our store.
