Betocrete continues to progress in the UK Market

“Schomburg and Atal have enjoyed an exclusive business partnership since 2017. Schomburg, the construction chemicals manufacturer from Detmold, Germany, develop, produce and market construction materials for the national and international market. Established in 1937, Schomburg have strived to become one of the leading construction chemical manufacturers worldwide. The exclusive relationship agreement between the partners cements Atalas the sole distributor of all Schomburgproducts in the United Kingdom.


With over 80 years worth of research and development in waterproofing technologies, the latest successful launch is an innovative crystalline system which is both hydrophobic and hydrophilic, the first of its kind. The technology, having been introduced into the UK market 18 months ago, is now a BBA certified system. 


Betocrete-C admixtures, when dosed to concrete designed to the relevant British Standards forms a Type B waterproofing solution with both hydrophobic and hydrophilic effects.  The admixture reacts with free lime and moisture within the concrete to seal the concrete capillary network with crystalline formations.  The pore blocking technology reduces water absorption of the concrete.  This 2-in-1 technology prevents moisture penetrating into the concrete member and the steel reinforcement, extending the lifetime of the structure and reducing maintenance costs. 


Areas of Application

Reinforced concrete basements

Swimming pools

Podium decks

Basement car parks
